Word Power


I belong to a fabulous Mom’s group! I am also one of eleven on the Leadership Committee for that group. The eleven of us have been trying to live intentionally with "JOY" as our focus this year. That tiny 3-letter word, JOY, has so much power! Our goal is to find joy in the normal, the everyday, the frustrating, the sad, the unbelievable…it is a challenge that we all have taken very seriously. There has been some stumbling, some failure, but also a lot of success with this exercise.   Although we are still intentionally finding joy in each minute, each day…a few weeks ago another challenge was presented to our group. We were to each pick a word that was unique to us individually. This word was to have special … [Read more...]

Sometimes we must Believe before we can See


"Seeing is Believing" is an idiom that means "only physical or concrete evidence is convincing"...but I think in many circumstances we need to reverse that and say, "Believing is Seeing".  Some things just can't be proved, some things don't need to be proved.  Faith is an example of this.  We believe even though we can not see.  We have faith in a higher power, we have faith that the sun will rise each morning, we have faith that we will be healed, we have faith that (you fill in the blank).

What I learned from a Toyota FJ Cruiser

Toyota FJ Cruiser

For the past several weeks, it seems that every time I turned around I saw a Toyota FJ Cruiser.  I was not looking for these cars, but when I would drive to and fro I would always see them.  They would be parked where I was parking, driving with me in the flow of traffic, driving against traffic...I was seeing them everywhere!  I began to wonder why...what message was I to get from this car? Was God trying to tell me something? I let my subconscious stew on it, I prayed about it, all the while I kept seeing this car in my daily travels.  Finally, my little voice, my intuition, my God told me to look up the slogans of Toyota.  I did just that, and now I am reminded of these great messages several times a day when I see these FJ Cruisers.  This is what I now think of every time I see this … [Read more...]
