Elegance

Originally posted on 'SinneD !:

Elegance can be obtained when you dress up nice. However if you put nice jeans on and a gorgeous shirt and wear some nice sneakers, but you don’t feel comfortable with that…do you really look elegant?

Balance is something that can be obtained. I mean, elegance is the balance between the inside and outside. Between your personality and your appearance. Coco Chanel said it and I live it.

But the balance of inside and outside is not easily achieved. You can be young and buy all designer clothing and wear it but still be not elegant. Instead obtaining balance requires time and patience. It requires some dedicated time for yourself. Some reflection. You could be alone for few hours or evening and meditate. But also you could also take a book, get inspired by the beautiful drawings in it or by what it tells you.

Balance is the key element in…

Morning

“Take us the foxes, the little foxes that spoil the vines.”
Song of Solomon 2:15

A little thorn may cause much suffering. A little cloud may hide the sun. Little foxes spoil the vines; and little sins do mischief to the tender heart. These little sins burrow in the soul, and make it so full of that which is hateful to Christ, that he will hold no comfortable fellowship and communion with us. A great sin cannot destroy a Christian, but a little sin can make him miserable. Jesus will not walk with his people unless they drive out every known sin. He says, “If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love, even as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in…

Healing for every disease

Psalm 103-3b

It only took until verse 3 to make me pause in my efforts to write out my specific thanks as listed in Psalm 103.

 This verse: “He heals your disease – every one”, stops me.

I know the answer. I know the ultimate healing the Psalmist is talking about. The healing when this body is gone and we find eternal peace and restoration in heaven. That is the healing that will last and the one that gives us hope in the midst of today’s struggles and disease.

It’s not my favorite answer. I’d prefer the answer that works like this:

“Dear Lord, please heal Linda of her cancer.” PRESTO – HEALED!

“Father God, please take this dementia away from mama.” PRESTO – HEAELD!

Isn’t that the kind of healing you want? Isn’t that the kind of God you expect? The kind who hears our prayers and answers them. Just…

Saturday prayers

Oh God hear my heart’s plea for healing.

Each Saturday morning, Bishop Steven Charleston uses Facebook to faithfully invite a sharing of prayers. These prayers are offered for ourselves, our loved ones, our neighbors and beyond. I look forward to this time each week. There are hundreds of requests – many just one or two lines. As I share my prayer I also take time to read the intercessions and celebrations offered by others. When reading these prayers each person knows you have heard their prayer when you ‘like’ the prayer. As the day moves forward these ‘likes’ collect as support and care.

This is a holy gathering – one that needs no walls. Used through social media it reaches beyond one’s comprehension. There are people who offer prayers each week and others who may only visit once. Hundreds of people give thanks for Bishop Charleston and this gathering of…

Nepal’s Missing Volcanoes

Originally posted on The Mountain Mystery:

HimalaysLast month’s devastating earthquakes in Nepal were caused by the collision of the Indian subcontinent crashing into and (partly) under the bulk of Asia. The Himalayas are being created by the collision of tectonic plates. So, where are the volcanoes? That’s what I was asked when a friend wanted me to explain the Katmandu disaster.

Well, there are no volcanoes in Nepal. Nepal has huge mountains, of course, but not every mountain in the world is caused by a volcano (only a small percentage are, actually) – and relatively few nasty earthquakes are triggered by volcanoes. The nearest volcanic activity to Katmandu is a thousand kilometres northwest, in western China, where an eruption last occurred over 60 years ago. The action in far western China has produced a few cones, but no volcanic mountains. No one was hurt when the 1951 Kunlun cone erupted. In fact, the eyewitnesses…

You Have To Put Yourself First

Originally posted on Eunicakes:

Stress comes in all shapes an sizes and is different for everyone but it can lead to serious problems. Last week I was excited to start blogging consistently again, and then something happened. I was at work and got a call telling me to come down to the unit because my mom almost passed out (We both work at a nursing home). I ran down to the other unit and there she was sitting down while they checked her blood pressure and pulse. Her pressure was insanely high and her pulse was 190. If you don’t know, your pulse should never be that high if you are sitting down. So we then had to rush her to her doctor, get a bunch of tests, and new medicine.

The crazy thing is that this happened because my mom has been under a huge amount of stress. She kept that stress bottled…
