Right now, the world, and our bodies, minds and spirits are in a transition. From darkness to light. The clocks have been changed, and the holy days are here. Some parts of our world have sunshine and flowers; some parts are covered with snow and ice and other unpleasantness. And Christians commemorate this as a […]
What is the Purim Story and What Does It Tell Us?
Those of you who know me know that I am a Christian. So why will I write about this holiday not of my culture or religion? Because the lesson is important. And you asked for it. Two weeks ago, people said they wanted to hear about spirituality. So here I am, doing as you have […]
It’s Ash Wednesday!
Thank you all for the generous, loving letters you have sent me last week. I was really worried about what you all thought of the blog, and now I have a much better idea. So, thank you. One of the things you told me was that you’d like to hear about the spiritual connection. And […]
What Will Work For You?
Hello! How are you doing Today? This Week? this Month? this Early in the New Year? Are the plans you so carefully wrote, working out for you? Are the decisions you made about changing your patterns of behavior coming true easily? Or are you seeing that some things just are not going as well as […]
What Shall We Squash?
Butternut squash is the quintessential fall/winter food. It’s huge, flavorful and mixes well with lots of things. A good squash soup is really filling and satisfying, and nutrient rich. Butternut squash is low in calories but high in many nutrients, including vitamin A, vitamin C, magnesium, and potassium. It’s also a good source of […]
The Best Brussels Sprouts
Yesterday was National Brussels Sprouts Day! Brussels Sprouts are well known and defined as the one vegetable that the most people avoid and dislike. That’s part of many people’s aversion to vegetables entirely. One big reason for this is that we don’t know how to choose and cook them effectively. And brussels sprouts are one […]
Time To Put My Changes Into Action!
Welcome! Welcome to this blog and welcome to this shiny new year! The candles and lights and celebrations are mostly done now, and we can get back to a more normal schedule and life. That works if you are generally happy with your life. If you are not, and you want changes, how are you […]
For 2023 – The New Transition
As we look back on 2022 and forward to 2023, how are you doing? What went well for you in 2022? What went badly? What kind of transformation do you want in this new year? And are the holidays always a hard season for you? I found a unique way to make the holidays better […]
The 21st, the Solstice, the Waiting Time
This is the hardest time of the year for me. The waiting and the preparations! From who we are seeing to where we are going, to children’s celebrations, to the candles and gifts (please may I not forget anyone!) to the spirituality of this time. And the food. It is always there in one form […]
Coffee with The Boss
Those of you who know me well know that I do not usually call my Higher Power by the traditional Christian names. I call him “George” as in “Let George do it” or “George” as in George Burns, the famous comedian. Why? You ask. Isn’t that just a little disrespectful? Maybe it is a bit; […]
