Live For Today

     It can become quite difficult to always come up with new ideas for fresh articles. I have a tendency to use past experiences to base editorials on. But there's one thing I have learned over the years, others do not learn from our mistakes. Everyone must live through their own screw ups. It's how we learn and grow and become.
     I came across this quote from The Crones Gathering,

Dunlop Lake, Elliot Lake,
 Ontario, Canada

"A new book with 365 blank pages is awaiting you.
Each page is for you to write your story.
There is no need to repeat what has already past.
Start writing anew with each morning."

     I suddenly realized that most of my articles were written from my past. And it doesn't stop there! I was writing about my past so I could find a way to improve my future. I forgot the most important rule, "Live for Today." If you stop and think about it for just a second, that tiny small window of time called "Today" is the only thing we have control over and even that can be finicky.

Refugee Crisis

The refugee situation is in the minds of every person in the world at the moment. Millions of people have been displaced and neighbouring countries are at their capacity to feed and house them. They have no where to go, no where to rest their heads, no idea where their next meal is coming from. Men, women and a great many children with no place to call home. This is the outcome of war. Most of them had nothing to do with starting this war but they are the ones that will suffer for it.

I've been so torn about the the refugee crisis. I know in my heart that helping these people and giving them refuge is the right thing to do. I know this BUT....

God is a Dreamer!

God is the Creator and He created this beautiful Planet Earth that we live on.  He created it so very picturesque for us to enjoy.  Does He have a sense of humor? Looking at all the varieties of animals that inhabit the Earth tells us that He does. Look at the giraffe with his long legs and long neck, the elephant with his long nose, and the swine with his flat pudgy nose and a curly skinny tail on a round body --- just to name a few.

There Comes A Time

There comes a time when you have to choose
Between turning the page
And closing the book
"Josh Jameson"

     Everyone has at some time in their lives come to a crossroads where a choice must be made. Sometimes it's one of the hardest choices to make, but sooner or later regardless of the situation around you, you will have to make the decision.

     When I speak of choices, I don't mean whether to go to WalMart or Target for a day of shopping. It's the big life changing choices that I'm talking about. Decisions that could very well turn your life upside down and inside out for good measure. Anyway you look at it, major choices usually mean major life changes. The two have a funny way of colliding.

Precious Moments in Time

A Precious Moment in Time
"There are only two days in the year     
that nothing can be done.
One is called yesterday 
and one is called tomorrow.
So today is the right day to
love, believe, do and mostly live."


     Many of us spend our whole lives thinking of time as a commodity broken down into bits of time. We have so many minutes to get this done or so many hours to accomplish that project. We cry about our past and we worry about our future. When do we actually get to live? Our lives are actually precious moments in time. We get to use them any way we choose. So why do so many of us waste this most valuable gift.

What Does God's Love And Forgiveness Mean?

I sometimes think I am one of the most blessed of persons. Every day of my working life, I have the opportunity to help many people from all over the world.  At the moment, I am a Peer Recruiter, Staffing Coordinator, and Orientation Trainer for a large employer.  It is during the interview process that my perspectives change.  People, from all over the world, share their personal stories with me, and I sit across from them in admiration of their courage and their strength. I have always lived and worked in Canada ... a pretty safe haven compared to other Countries and Continents.

God Is Always Drawing Us To Him With Love

Since I was four years old, my greatest desire was to serve God and to be a woman of honor for Him.  I have failed miserably over and over again. One step forward, ten steps back. Life has been so difficult a lot of the times. I spent most of it disqualifying myself ... feeling like, once again, I wasn't measuring up. I wasn't smart enough, or educated enough, or nice enough, or good-looking enough.
