The Thank You Note

Tears welling up in my eyes, I slowly opened the card.  Reading the carefully handwritten words of love and gratitude, the tears overflowed, streaming down my face.  I had discovered the card sorting through my mom’s things after her funeral.  Among them this thank you note, written in my hand, sent to her and Dad …

Don’t Slide-Persevere!

I am recovering from a bit of Summer Slide.  It’s the phenomenon when summer schedule changes evoke sliding and not sticking with usual routines, fitness or foods. A little summer slide is part of the glory of summer-sleeping in, going different places and eating different foods-like from the new bakery I discovered.  But summer slide …

How Are You-Really?

What I am“Hi!  How are you?” We ask this repeatedly-but how often do we receive (or want) an honest answer?  Usually, the reply is “fine”, “great” or “ok” when many of us really want to say “exhausted”, “worried”, or “wondering what’s next”. I understand that even though I may be feeling much of the above, I know I am well.

What I am and what I’m feeling are two different things.  I am well because I am well in my soul.  The rest are feelings.  Currently, I am feeling tired from a long weekend and a bit overwhelmed with all I have going on; but my life is blessed and I am well.

Attempting to see the big picture of life, I’ve concluded that big picture is not all my responsibility.  My future is secure in the saving grace of Jesus.  The rest is managing the “stuff” of this world and my feelings and reactions to said stuff.

This is part of what I’d like to explore in our Fall 12 week Wellness Journey.

A Wellness Restart

Ever find yourself physically or mentally drained?  I have, usually at the end of summer or a big life event.  This summer, I was determined not to wind up exhausted! Ahh Summer-lazy days of doing nothing, relaxing and taking stock of life, right?  Not always the case for me.  Most summers, the variant schedule changes, …
