Where is Your Faith?

God, Creator of the Universe, Higher Power, Divine, Source Energy, call it what you will, we are connected! We are never disconnected from this Love of God unless we choose to be in a living Hell.

I thank her so very much for her wise words and her insight. Today she says, “It’s not about getting what you want, it’s about patience.”

I thought maybe it would be an informative group since there is not a tremendous amount of information on this disease and the symptoms are different for many people. I have said before that the disease that gets the most money […]

Heart Repair at Christmas

Recently I have had many friends that have required heart surgery to repair various issues.  It rattled some thoughts in my head and I realized that I never seem to think of all of the mechanisms at work that keep my heart pumping.  Beside the obvious and magnificent elements that created such a perfect organ […]

Living life….or so we call it

Today I was reminded of a poem that I read back in college. I still think it is timely. Down By The Salley Gardens       William Butler Yeats Down by the salley gardens    my love and I did meet; She passed the salley gardens    with little snow-white feet. She bid me take love […]
