What Will You Do with Your One Precious Life?

Don't Lose Hope

“At the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair should be messy, and your eyes sparkling.” -Shanti

We never know how much time we have left. That’s why it’s important to live everyday. And to fill everyday with something meaningful.

To create a life that is kind and beautiful. To invest in people … and to follow our dreams …

And to make sure we have captivating dreams!

For too often we wake up – and we’re stuck in a deep rut. We do “the same old, same old” and we shrivel up inside. We give up on adventure and we let our world grow small. We find we’re just existing. There’s no passion anymore.

But to really feel alive we must get out there and explore. We need to build new memories, and to live with open eyes. We need to find that courage to…

The World is Watching

AN interesting update on how we are treating our homeless while helping others elsewhere who also need it.

A Homeless Life

The world is watching the war in Ukraine unfold graphically on our TV’s, Cellphones and tablets.

The world is watching the homeless loose all their possessions over YouTube, Twitter and Instagram in LA. City workers putting everything in the trash trucks saying “we’re only doing our job”. The city is cleaning up the homelessness out there more then once but, more devastating to watch it on InvisiblePeople.TV. A true and heart wrenching interview with the ones loosing their homes as the city makes way for opening day in the ballpark, the ballpark.

The world is watching Tennessee that just passed a bill, waiting on Governor Lee’s desk, that makes camping on state property a felony. A felony for trying to survive. There aren’t enough shelter beds for the estimated number of homeless in Nashville. The city wants to attract a super bowl so they’ll need a bigger stadium costing billions.

Study 4: Pastors/Preachers

Sadly, sometimes the hurt that happens in a church directly involves one of the pastors. IF you or someone you know has been hurt by church leadership this might be a good study for you.

Church Hurts

Find the text of Study 4: Pastors/Preachers below. If you’d prefer to listen to the study, you can watch the video — the content is the same.We will host a Zoom meeting for for anyone who would like to discuss this Thursday, Feb. 24, from 7-8 p.m. at this link.

STUDY TEXT:

What comes to mind when you hear the word “pastor”? What about when you hear the word “preacher”?

While these terms both often refer to the human leader of a church, “pastor” highlights the role of overseeing a congregation and “preacher” highlights the role of verbal proclamation. In some churches the terms may be used interchangeably; in some churches they may refer to different people. But in all churches, the humans who are in charge and who speak for the church are given tremendous responsibility. With this responsibility comes the risk of these human leaders…

STUDY TEXT:

Read John 8:2-11 (NIV below).

2 At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3 The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question…

Journal Prompts – Week Four

I really like these journal prompts from Shell Vera this week.

Shell Vera

We’ve made it to the fourth week of the year! Let’s continue to do the things we love, and work on using our voices through our writing, speaking, art, and how we show up in this world.

As promised, here are your weekly journaling prompts. When I do the prompts myself before sharing them with you, I set a timer for 15 minutes and see what comes out in my journal. There are no rules around how you use them, but this is a good way to begin if you are new to using prompts.

I enjoy reading what comes up for you as you respond to them, so feel free to tag me on social or backlink here on the blog if you write or record a response. I’ve also enjoyed seeing the responses those of you who journal them in handwriting have sent to me via email. It’s…

Journal Prompts – Week Two

Week two of Shell Vera’s journal prompts. I will post these weekly for those of us looking to do some creative output casually.

Shell Vera

We made it to week two of 2022. How has it been for you? I have had a wonderful week with eye-opening conversations and events, joy-filled moments, and a ton of organization and preparation for this year! There have been moments of complete exhaustion because of all the things going on in my mind, but I’ve embraced that as part of my personality, so I am learning to make idea lists and move on until I am ready to explore new ideas and activities.

As promised, each Sunday I will post prompts for journaling. They will be a mix of creative, reflective, and other prompts based upon what’s going on in my head for the week. Some weeks, they will turn into posts in the future, other times they are just things that floated through my mind that I journaled about or thought would be fun to write about so…

Judgement: a waste of time 1/3

This is a reblog from The Daily Addict. I love the part about David Hawkins explaining why we shouldn’t judge.

The daily addict

I believe that I only have a certain amount of time on this planet in this physical body. So when I figure something out and realize it is actually wasting my time…I am compelled to change it.

Now judgement. I know in my heart that it really is not my place not to judge anybody. Spiritually and in the realm of kindness I get it.

However today…one of the lessons that logically told me it is a waste of time came through.

He went on to explain that we have no way of knowing the infinite number of events that have occurred to bring even a spec of dust to this moment in time. Never mind the events that have occurred in one persons lifeor life times.

I get it! I have no idea where anybody is truly coming from. I have no idea what anybody has…
