Mystical Hope

2024-01-01T21:37:19+00:00

People get excited about the new year. I get it. Who of us does not look forward with expectation and hope. Maybe last year wasn’t great. Even if it was wonderful, the human spirit is drawn to what a new year promises.  I have never been one to make new year resolutions. I want the zero to sixty-five race to longer days and warmer weather. January through March is a hard time for me.

2023-02-17T21:40:17+00:00

My Journey with God and Yoga, Part I On a cold January morning with the snow on the ground, I woke up in the hotel close to where I’m working this week. I work all over the UK and Eire so this is just another hotel room wake-up. I stretched my toes to the end of the bed, tensed my legs, hips, stomach, arms and gritted my teeth for about five seconds before relaxing back on my bed.  I focused upon my body touching the surface beneath me and performed a body scan, top of my head to the bottom of [...]

Who is the True God except the Eternal? Who stands like a rock except our God? The True God who encircled me with strength and made my pathway straight. Psalm 18:31-32   Excerpt from The Rocks Cry Out by Jody Thomae, available on Amazon: "When the Pharisees told Jesus to make his disciples stop crying out in worship as he entered Jerusalem on a donkey, he replied, “I tell you, if these [worshipers] were silent, the very stones would cry out” (Luke 19:40).

FULFILLING YOUR CALLING IN EVERY ASSIGNMENT

2022-08-12T02:55:27+00:00

“God, how did I get here?” I sat in my car, weeping, after witnessing a young girl graduate as valedictorian.

Three years earlier, this girl was a victim, but now she was a valedictorian. I couldn’t stop wiping the tears from my eyes and thanking God for what I just witnessed. And in that moment I asked, “God, how did I get here? How [...]
