Our Comfort Zone

This seems to be a very busy time of year for many of us. There are weddings, graduations, family get-togethers, plus all the normal activities. With all this busy-ness, any unexpected or unplanned event can seem to throw us into a tail spin, and it doesn’t feel very peaceful!
I recently had to replace my computer. One day, after a routine update, it wouldn’t come up anymore. A visit to Best Buy showed that the hard drive had failed. I ...

Spring Stirs Us

New Beginnings
This is the time of year that is so transformative! At the beginning of March, we are often still experiencing all the effects of winter; leafless trees, brown grass, cold weather. It’s hard to imagine the green leaves, budding trees and flowers and warm weather that will most likely be happening by the end of April.  Such is the glory of spring, and I never tire of seeing the new life beginning again!
Easter is a sacred part ...

Being Free

Another new start, another new beginning. It’s a brand new year, and the possibilities are endless!  At this time of year, we look past the immediate, bleak winter landscape to the vision of potential that is there for all to see. Do you see it?
Most of us have good intentions to begin new healthy habits, to be more patient, or to be kinder in our relationships. We start out well, because we can see the vision. We very much ...

Wrapping Things Up

Wrapping Things Up

I was at Barnes and Noble the other day, and my companion and I noticed Christmas products already available. At the time of this writing, Halloween hasn’t even happened yet! It seems too soon to be seeing Christmas items! But, the reality is that Christmas is only a couple of months away. This year is quickly coming to an end, and it is time to begin to look ahead to 2017; its possibilities and its opportunities.
Here in ...

Flexibility

As I sat down to write this article, unexpected phone calls with immediate needs starting coming in. The closing date for my house had to be moved out a few weeks, and I needed to sign the document. A call came about a woman who wants visits from someone from a Unity church. I was able to get her involved in one of the other Unity church’s prayer chaplain program.  A couple of questions that needed answers; a call requesting ...

Prosperity

There is an expression about “having it all.” Usually we think about
material goods, great relationships, and beauty when we hear it. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard it in connection with some famous person who took his or her own life, as in, “what a surprise, (s)he seemed to have it all.” That person’s life, viewed from the outside, included wealth, fame and attractiveness. Is that what “having it all” is? Obviously, something was missing!
Too ...

In Full Bloom

We are in a beautiful time of year: flowers are blooming, trees have grown leaves, and grass is lush and green. There is an expression, “April showers bring May flowers.” And the flowering season has started early. As I sit writing, I can see out into my back yard, and I see the redbud tree losing its pink blossoms and sprouting leaves, pretty purple flowers that are blooming, and there is a tree with gorgeous white flowers (maybe Dogwood?). It’s ...

Anything Is Possible

We’ve spent the first part of this year in our Sunday services talking about possibilities. We agreed that we’d all like to embrace our theme of ‘realizing expanding possibilities’, and we’ve discussed ways of making that happen. But, sometimes when it’s winter and cold and dark and we don’t see change happening, we might get discouraged. Thank goodness for the change in seasons! In this season of Easter, spring, and new life, we have more opportunities to consider (and perhaps ...

Resolutions or Vision

This is the time of the year that we often take stock and begin to make plans for the new year. So many of us make resolutions, set goals and have all the intentions in the world of making serious changes in our lives. We want to be healthier, happier, wealthier, wiser, more in love, etc. And we really mean well! We join gyms, start new eating plans, make a schedule of date nights with our spouses, maybe ...

Changing Seasons

As I sit here, the temperature is 82 degrees. It’s hard to believe that in a few short weeks, we’ll be gathering with our families for Thanksgiving, then not much later after that, Christmas!
Granted, it is warmer than normal for this time of year. It is nearly Halloween, and people are wearing cutoffs and sandals. I’m using the screen door, and my four-legged housemates are happy to be able to lie in the sun outside. I think it’s good ...
