What Message Are We Leaving Our Children?


Listen carefully to the song titled
'What's Forever For'...
This song speaks directly to the issue of divorce, but if you think about it, it's also about love and our relationship to others... that includes our family, friends, society, our country and the rest of the world. If we don't have the love, respect and desire to try to understand others and work out our differences, then we have nothing to move forward with, to hope for and give purpose to our lives. It's a choice to live greatfully and respectfully. Life doesn't need to be an ex parte party of one,  passing judgment  from the point of view of your pain, your perspective and your needs. People, we appear to be doing very little... calm down and be party to a solution to this unrest and our differences (be they personal or or social). Think about it. What does this all say about our ourselves? What is this teaching our children? What kind of future are we leaving them?

Soak In His Mercy and Grace

Bringing some heaven to your life...it's been gifted to you. Reach out and take it.
We get so wrapped up in our own little world...don't forget to open your eyes, mind and heart to the beauty and strength that God's grace and mercy surrounds us with everyday. Quiet yourself and talk and walk with Him.
Recall Psalm 62. Soak yourself in the
goodness of Father God...

What Do You Do?

What do you do... when pain and feelings of helplessness overtake you from: sickness, debt you believe you can't find a way  to control, children who are going through illnesses and troubles of their own, the sadness you feel when your grandchildren (your joy) are far away from you, the job you need keeps alluding you....and on and on.
Well, you are not alone in this world. So many people suffer silently, believing there is no way out and things are only getting worse, never better. Honestly,  sometimes it seems to defy reason to believe anything other than what you see and hear with your own eyes and ears.
At times, you may find believing and trusting anything but what your senses tell you is delusional.  So, what DO you do?
Yes, you need to find your own strength and that can be challenging to do. This may take time, but believe me, if you are paying attention, you will start recognizing things and people that around you that are positive and uplifting.  No, this alone won't solve your problems.  However, if you begin by starting to find some joy from seemingly  inconsiquencial events and people and keep your faith in a power higher than yourself, you will begin to build a bridge...I call that bridge HOPE. Understand that biblically the word hope is not a wishing for the impossible or improbable. Biblical use of the word hope has  intension in it with the full expectation of a bountiful harvest for your needs. It's faith that gives you hope and that hope gives you the strength to deal with what you must do to resolve the soul wrenching issues in your life. Remember, this takes time and a large amount of introspection...not to mention intestinal fortitude. Then, my friends, you put your trust in God. Yes, he's there in your life, but you will never truly understand this until you open yourself up to the surrender, awareness, faith and hope, that I have previously discussed.
Will you feel uneasy at times? Yes, you will. Will you question yourself and sanity at first? Yes, you will. Yet, as time goes by, you will become aware of all the blessings He has bestowed you with and the great number of miracles He has done in your life. Then, your understanding and trust in Him will grow.
Things are never hopeless. It's the rock on which you stand  and your perspective that will enable you to walk, by His grace and mercy, through your journey of life. We will never consistently sidestep life's problems,  but we can live life with the expectation of happiness and abundance. We are in this world, but not of it. We are the Lord's children. The Bible reminds us often of God's promises. He wills us
health, happiness and abundance. Are ready to recieve God's gifts to you?

You have the promise of  tomorrow...what will you do with it? Make it count!  One breath at a time, one day at a time. You may  be in the the middle of a great miracle, right now. One of those "suddenly" moments that you don't know is coming... God Bless and keep you.

Life's Moments Linger

So delicate and beautiful are these gifts from nature...these blossoms burst into existence in one sudden moment of time. At first, you may not notice them, but their fragrance is so sweet, you can't stop yourself from turning and looking in their direction. Even though, these delightful visions begin to fade away so very quickly, the memory of them and the sweet notes they struck linger with you.
Be sure to look around you and drink in each and every luscious moment life has to offer you, let nothing pass you by...Deborah Mullan

The Benefits Of Farm to Table Living

I encourage you to enjoy the fresh fruits and  vegetables from your local farmers. You will save money and provide your family with fresh healthy foods. You can enjoy these fruits and veggies all year long by freezing and/or canning them. The joys of homemade jams, jellies and sauces all year...delightful. Get together with family and friends to prepare them! Consume them or gift them. I assure you, they will be much appreciated.
Provide your family and friends a little summer sunshine during the long winter months!
During the summer months, you can even dress up your table with fresh flowers from the garden... yes, some can be eaten in salads, used as garnish or sauteed with cheeses and/or herbs!
