Going Beyond Your Comfort Zone

Some people might ask, “Why would I want to go beyond my comfort zone?” Isn’t comfort the destination? Or at least it makes the journey better. Isn’t comfort part of happiness, and isn’t happiness the purpose of life? It seems that we have a natural desire to seek comfort. No one wants to make themselves […]

Happy Diwali for New and Old Friends

Time and Space Have No Limit on Your Heart

When you’re “over the hill”, your kids have moved out, and you’re facing the latter years of life, time and space start to look a little different. You no longer need as much space, but you wish you had more time. Not only that, older people tend to get lost in reflection, there’s a lot […]

To the Season of Fruitfulness

To Autumn BY JOHN KEATS Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,    Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and bless    With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run; To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,    And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;       To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells […]

What Will You Share With Your Descendents?

Ecclesiastes 3 :1-13 To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven: 2     a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to uproot what is planted; 3     a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time […]

Summertime, When the Livin’ is Easy

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. – John Lubbock Oh, the summer night, Has a smile of light, And she sits […]

Together and Apart We Love Each Other

What is this thing called love? It can’t be seen or understood clearly yet many say they feel it. Some say they give and receive love, as if it were a present in a box. Yet others say they choose to love, as if it were an action or activity. In the past century or […]
