Walking in the Light

Posted by & filed under my life.

It’s been a heavy couple of weeks. And yesterday was especially heavy. Lots of people needing lots of prayers. Ever since letting go of man’s teachings of God and asking him to show me who he is, I’ve had a bit of a struggle. It’s almost like the words and beliefs that brought me so… Read more »

Be the true you

Posted by & filed under my life.

The title of this post is a message to myself. Yes, it’s to all of you who read this, too. But I’m trying to give myself a little pep talk. Okay? I’ve always felt different. And people have noticed. I was teased as a child. You don’t get teased if you fit in. It’s when… Read more »

Our real selves

Posted by & filed under my life.

There are some things we can’t change about ourselves. Maybe we can with surgery, but if we don’t want to do that, our physical appearance is pretty much what we’ve been given at birth. Like big noses, big hips, baldness, lots of wrinkles, insert whatever here: ________. These things are all “less” than the human physical ideal…. Read more »

Christmas thoughts, 2014

Posted by & filed under my life.

As I sit down to write this, my little kitty Grace has curled up next to me and is purring happily as I type. It’s a metaphor. I see metaphors everywhere. And this Christmas I wish you all a little grace curled up next to you, comforting you and filling your senses with happiness. Peace… Read more »

A world at peace?

Posted by & filed under my life.

First of all, I feel like I want to apologize for my last post. I could take it down, but it’s how I felt at the moment, so I’m not going to. But I’m really trying to not focus on the negative these days. It’s such a waste of time! Okay, now that that’s out… Read more »

Living from my heart

Posted by & filed under faith, health, herbaculture, my life.

Taking a permaculture class in the fall of 2013 was the beginning of a profound change in me. I *thought* I was going there to learn techniques for growing food. Hahahahahahaha. I mean, there was that, and there was designing your garden spaces – technically I have my Permaculture Design Certificate. But even trying to… Read more »

He was a good man

Posted by & filed under my life.

My dad lost his battle for life after a bad fall. He is gone from our physical presence, but one with the peace and love of God, and forever in our hearts. He was a good man. A faithful husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle, teacher, friend. I look at his face, and his… Read more »

My dad

  Each labored breath means he is still here with us. Each gaze makes me wonder what he thinks. Each beeping machine reminds us he is vital. Each passing moment, Each glimpse, Each gesture, Held tightly in my heart. _____________________ My dad is fighting for his life after a bad fall. And the rest of… Read more »

Falling

Posted by & filed under my life.

This morning, after walking on my treadmill, there was a break in the rain. I stepped outside, barefoot, and stood looking into my woods. Just breathing. Connected to the earth and sky. Being thankful. Taking in the autumn beauty. At peace. As I looked up to the top of the tree in front of me,… Read more »

A visit from my granddad

Posted by & filed under my life.

Last night I dreamt of my grandfather. He was a gardener, he knew plants in the woods. He walked for pleasure. All these things that I am, too. The dream is fuzzy, but this is how I think it went… I took his head in my hands and said, “I hardly knew you,” and behind… Read more »
