Do you have any good news?

One of the things I realized a few years ago is how people, myself included, would elaborate endlessly to others about all the bad things that happen… the drama, the misfortune, the inconveniences of day to day life, how much gas keeps going up, the cost of living, the way children are today, the spot on my outfit, the weight I had gained, etc.

The only difference is in our sleeping state format we view our dreams thru the eyes of our soul. Which in my experience sometimes feels like I’m looking at one of those ornament water…

Challenge, Faith, and Inner Conviction

Challenge, Faith, and Inner Conviction

Challenge in the dictionary has many meanings. One of them says, an invitation to a contest or trial of any kind. It is interesting that in the midst of a challenge, it is hard for us to remember that it is an invitation. An invitation rather than a threatening, unwanted reality, which ultimately will define…
