Just Gratitude #1

I am thankful for faith, the anchor that centers me in life’s inevitable ups and downs.

November Peace Post


“This might be the toughest Peace Challenge for many of you, but I want to take us out of our comfort zones for true peace. This month, I want you to open your arms to your enemies. Think of a person, a place, a nation, a culture, a religion, a gender, or an ideology that you view as a enemy…Post a photo, piece of art, or collage that offers a vision of peace between you and your enemy…I honor your intention to do whatever you can to meet this challenge…”


like lambs with the wolves,
my Hero once said, dear soul,
love thy enemies …



“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father, for he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.”
-Matthew 5:43-45

Obsession Breeds Gloom

obsession breeds gloom
human flower stunted bloom
less worry more growth

One of the most difficult parts of dealing with anxiety is obsessive thinking and worrying. The haiku above is my brief illustration of what obsession tends to do in my life. Basically, it makes me depressed and keeps me from being the best mom, wife, woman I’m meant to be. Daily, I must remind myself to worry less and have faith and confidence. Really, everything will be okay.
