“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” –St. John 4:24

I wanted to write about this verse, but initially, I was stumped.  Jesus had said it all.  Then the question came to me, “What is a spirit?”  …so I looked it up.

One definition of the word spirit is: ‘the nonphysical part of a person that is the seat of emotions and character, the soul.’  That’s beautiful right?

After reading the definition, it reminded me of why we should Read More

Congrats Mike!!!!

So, my youngest son graduated today,  June 4th… and I am very, very proud of him.   😆  He and his siblings – I think – are the best kids in the world.  I’m actually very proud of them all.

However, for one reason or the other and through a series of spectacular events, I wasn’t able to be there physically.  That old foe, my life’s nemesis– the devil –would enjoy me drowning in my embarrassment, misery and sorrow and self-pity.  But I’ve decided: Not today.  Today, I’m reaching deep and for every lemon—I’m going to start squeezing it for all its worth and begin making the BEST lemonade …ever.  And for every good thing—I’ll remember to be thankful!

Today is the day I’m making changes Read More

This question was posed in the Bible in the book of Genesis 18:14. During this biblical episode a truth is revealed, which is: Read More

Looking back at year 2010 and forward towards 2011, I am reminded of scriptures found in II Kings 7:3.

[1]The Proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel; [2]To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; [3]To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; [4]To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. [5]A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: –Proverbs 1: 1-5

Ever wanted a sure source of good advice?

The book of Proverbs is a collection of writings which is filled with great advice and divine wisdom. I had been on a quest for wisdom and had sought God for answers. I was led to the book of Proverbs. While skimming over the chapters, I realized that there were 31 Chapters in Proverbs (one for each day of the month)…how cool is that?

When I am faced with difficult situations or I wonder about the whys of it all, a verse from Proverbs creeps up in my being. Read More
