The dream inside of you is there for a reason. Don’t give up on it.
I just uploaded some pics under the vegan tab. Please be patient with me as I continue to build this site. I will be sharing some vegan and juicing recipes in the near future. Thanks for stopping by. peace!
I’ve been told numerous times that I shouldn’t procrastinate. Evidently I struggle with putting things off. Do you? I remember while pursuing my Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies one of my classes was in the Pastoral Epistles (1 & 2 Timothy and Titus). I had one assignment. Now, you would think I would have scheduled my time wisely allowing ample time to finish my project, but no, I didn’t. To make matters worse the assignment was translating and annotating the Greek text. What!! I waited until two weeks before it was due to start and I literally drove myself and my family crazy. Miraculously, I was able to meet the deadline and I received an A. During that time I experienced tremendous stress because I was just too lazy to do the right thing. I knew better, but chose to wait. We shouldn’t wait when it comes to the important matters in life. If you love someone, tell them today. When was the last time you sat down with your mother or father and told them how much you loved them? How about your husband? Wife? Children? Friends? If you are going to perform a good deed, do it today. Give your ALL every day. Live fully in each moment and let each moment be subsumed with love, grace and light.
The other day was long and brutal! You know what I mean, don’t you? It was one of those days where everything went wrong. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. How does that happen? Not sure, but it does. I proceeded to take a shower thinking it would wash off some of the cynicism, but to no avail. On my way to work it seemed like all the driver’s ED students were on the interstate. Ugh! Once at work the craziness just continued. Finally, I was on my way home hoping that things were going to get better. Yeah right! The driver’s ED students were still on the freeway. After several accidents on the road and 45 minutes behind schedule, I finally made it to the house. By this time I was hungry. No food in the house. We had to go to the grocery store, but I couldn’t go to the store because I had to go get my son from basketball practice. Once home, he had to get ready for his baseball game (the craziness of having an athletic son). I was tired from being grumpy all day. My energy level to fight off my ill feelings was fleeting fast. I was upset. Nah, I was pissed and guess who got the bulk of it; my precious son who hadn’t done anything to deserve it. He was excited to be playing his last baseball game. He didn’t deserve the treatment I gave him. I scolded him over trivial things and if I were in a better mood I would’ve left it alone. He played an awesome game and they won despite the rudeness of his dad. I was aching in my spirit about my conduct. Once home I pulled him aside and apologized for my behavior. I told him my actions were inexcusable and asked him to forgive me. He did!
Now, I could’ve left the situation alone (procrastinated) and went on my way and it would have healed itself, but my lack of action would‘ve left an indelible mark on his spirit and I didn’t want that. I chose not to wait, but to do what was necessary and remedied my mistake.
I’m asking you to do the same thing. Don’t postpone healing any situation that has become sickly from your behavior. YOU HAVE THE POWER TO HEAL!
Stop telling me everything is going to be ok and start helping me work through all my problems.
For me, the rain has an enchanting ambiance that helps settle me. I listen and life begins to make sense. -obr
