Conflict is like the storm that clears the air

When life gives you complications, stresses and brings the unthinkable, that is when your Faith needs to be the strongest. Give up the illusion that you deserve a problem free life. Part of you is wanting the resolution of all difficulties- This is a false hope! Life will bring challenges and this is the time to trust your higher power and time to learn and grow. Embrace whatever the difficulty is as today is another day to make choices that are best for your healing. Whenever you start to feel afraid, remember that God is your shield from the storm. Refuse to waste energy worrying, and you will have strength to spare. Keep your Faith and you will get through this…to new calm, peaceful, sunny days ahead.

Faith Filled Friday

Imagine what you want and with focus and perseverance make it happen.

A possibility thinking person when faced with a new concept is charged with excitement and sees a great opportunity.

Possibility thinkers have trained themselves to look for the positive possibilities in all areas of life. They have learned how to overcome inferiority complexes and live confidently; listen to new ideas and evaluate them carefully; see opportunity, sized them and sees them courageously; welcome challenging problems and solve them creatively; face personal tragedies with equanimity and if possible use them constructively.

Possibility thinkers are people just like you and me but when faced with a mountain they do not quit. They keep on driving until they climb over, find a pass-through, tunnel underneath – or simply stay and turn the mountain into a gold mine.

Today, think about what you want that would change your life and world…. then do something to make it happen.

We have the power to change the world for the better, one interaction at a time…🙌🏻💙🙏

Acceptance and Hope

Faith Filled Friday
2020 was a year of challenge and fear. 2021 is the year of HOPE!


I went for a walk in this new year on a gravel path and it was a very gray day. There was ice and some frozen snow on the path so I had to watch my step so I wouldn’t fall. I was pondering the past year and all that 2020 brought. I still can’t believe all of the immense changes that occurred with the pandemic, protests, rioting, sickness, deaths, presidential election and so many other things that will never be the same. People made decisions, situations occurred, and there is not much I can do about what happened…life is different. As I walked on that path, I looked ahead and saw a bright red cardinal land on a branch that I was headed towards. I saw that vibrant bird and my gray surroundings didn’t matter. My focus was on this beautiful bird. I saw that brilliant color and also saw hope, courage and peace in that bird.

Last year was like being on that path. As I walk into the new year, The Cardinal is the hope for 2021. 2020 was about facing fears-especially the fear of despair. 2021 is about being alive again and having the courage to face change and accept what has happened and move on. Have intention. It’s about trusting yourself and your faith. It’s about knowing your own beliefs and your own truths that are filled with integrity and light, then taking all of it and focus on them just like that bright Red Cardinal’s brilliance.

FYI a google search says “Cardinals appear when angels are near. Cardinals appear when loved ones are near. To this day, red cardinals are one of the most common spiritual signs that people receive from Heaven. The word cardinal comes from the Latin word cardo that means hinge. It is serving as the hinge on the doorway between Earth and Spirit, delivering messages back and forth.”
