Journeying: A Perspective of One Traveler

January 27, 2013

One of the most profound lessons I learned last weekend… REALLY learned… was the idea that it’s ALL about the Journey and NOT the destination.  One that Rev. Meg of the Church of the Larger Fellowship (CLF), who headed the trip to New Orleans, began reinforcing from the beginning, even before we departed for Louisiana. […]

Following Our Hearts

Approximately 5 years ago, Dh and I began to contemplate his impending retirement from the military.  For nearly 25 years, he had served in one branch of the US military or another.  The lifestyle had become our family’s reality, and the thought that we could do go anywhere in the 50 states that we chose […]

The day has the potential to be a very busy one, however, I am happy to say that the service I will be presenting to the Fellowship tonight is done!  (And for that… I am most grateful!)

Our ‘Salvation’ Through Enchantment

As I sat down to write this post, it was my assertion that, despite the advances in our culture, here in the West (predominantly the US because that is my area of experience) we are not an overly happy people.  I did not, however, wish to say so without first checking my facts… Did you […]

Comments Off on Everyday Musings: Introduction

Recently, I sat listening to a podcast with Guy Finley on Healing With the Masters.  During the talk he spoke about believing; about belief, and he said essentially it means to ‘be alive in’, putting whatever it is into practice everyday. “When my first child was born it was time for me to begin practicing […]
