What Do You Want to See in Your Life?

Michelangelo once said, “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” Michelangelo, of course, was an Italian sculptor, painter, architect and poet of the High Renaissance. He has been described as the greatest artist of his age and even as the greatest artist of all time. His idea of […]


Remember that old song Frank SinatraI sang called “Imagination”? “Imagination is funny, it makes a cloudy day sunny Makes a bee think of honey just as I think of you… Imagination is crazy, your whole perspective gets hazy Starts you asking a daisy, “What to do, what to do?” Imagination is like magic, not because […]

Appreciate the Simple Things in Life

You never know how inspiration will come to you. The other day, I was reading the comics in the paper, and one of the characters in ”Pearls Before Swine” by Stephan Postis said, “If I’d known this was a party, I’d have danced a whole lot more.” And then in June 1 Daily Word, I […]

Who Are You?

Who are you? How you answer this question determines how much power you have over your life and the world around you. Do you believe that your power comes from something or someone outside yourself? If you get a college degree does that mean you have power? If you make a ton of money, will […]

I Celebrate My Freedom to Be Exactly Who I Am

A recent entry in Daily Word was something that caught my attention in terms of power: “I celebrate my freedom to be exactly who I am. In all the world, there is no one exactly like me.” You are the only you who will ever exist. To compare yourself to others is pointless because no […]

The beloved comedian Robin Williams said, “No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.” He was so right! Words have power. They can destroy and they can create.

I am a Radiating Center of Love

The Power of Love

As we continue to think about the power of Love, we realize it’s not that easy to definite, much less practice it! In the Bible in Matthew 5:44-48, we are commanded to “Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you, bless them that curse you, pray for them that despitefully use you.” Our […]

Learning to Love

In the Book of John, we read that Jesus said, “As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love.” That sounds pretty simple, but we human still have a hard time knowing how to do it. the strange thing is that even when we know the dictionary definition of […]

Stop! Look! Listen!

STOP! LOOK! LISTEN! That’s my mantra for reminding myself to slow down and turn to my inner wisdom when I don’t know what to think or do about some situation. There are many times when our minds are in turmoil over some issue in life. So the first thing to do is STOP everything and […]
