JOY and PEACE are words that are used a lot over the holidays, but I wonder how many people really ponder the significance of them. I purchased a sign a few months ago that I hung in my kitchen with the word “JOY” on it in gold letters. Of course, It’s meant to be a Christmas decoration, but I’ve decided to keep it there year-round as a reminder to myself and my family. I left it because I believe that we can become so focused on our problems and what we are lacking that it can weigh us down and rob us of joy.
In keeping with my theme of JOY for 2018, I am sharing this awesome speech by Matthew McConaughey…which wolf will you feed?

The Transformation of My Yoga Practice….
A few months ago, I was in yoga class practicing a balancing pose. Normally I find a focal point on the wall to help maintain my balance. For some reason, I became fixated on a crazy design on someone’s shirt. That person fell, and, of course, I lost my balance as well. I felt the Lord say gently to me, “If your drishti is on man, you will fall.”
My family and I moved to a new community about a year-and-half ago. My son was previously at a small private Christian school where there were only about 125 students in the entire academy. Transitioning to a large public school and a new neighborhood has been interesting and has presented some challenges. Over all, it has been a positive experience for my son, especially academically. However, it has not been as easy as I had imagined for all of us to become socially integrated in our new location; I suppose that will come with time.
When a neighbor asked me to join carpool, my initial thoughts were, “wow, this would be a great way to get to know some of the neighbors better, and I could use an extra 45 minutes in the morning!” Continue reading “Why I Opted Out of Carpool”
