Rivers and Spirituality

Sunset on the Missouri River in Sioux City, Iowa on October 31, 2018 from my hotel room…it was a sunset that I wrote about in my journal.  The colors seemed to get better and more vibrant with each passing moment, leaving me in awe of a colorful sky.   While I am in the state ofContinue reading “Rivers and Spirituality”

Draw the Circle Wide

This is a picture of hands in a circle at one of our retreats several years ago.  We all have temporary tattoos of butterflies and hearts on our arms.  Though we all have different colors of skin, we are united in the transformative spirit of growth and support at this retreat. It reminds me ofContinue reading “Draw the Circle Wide”

The backdropContinue reading “Marching On…”

But this is the first and greatContinue reading “Wilderness”

Reconnecting with my Faith

This happens on a regular basis, but recently, it occurred to me to bring up Renee Fleming’s rendition of Bernstein’s “Simple Song”. The melody capturesContinue reading “Reconnecting with my Faith”

A May Morning over Everest

Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork. KJV As I relive those moments on a small plane between Nepal and Bhutan, a front row seat to God’s majesty, I think of my own journey. Where have I been led and opted to follow those instincts? Where haveContinue reading “A May Morning over Everest”
