What is Goodness?

I love the word “Goodness” .. Goodness is something that means alot to me, because those times are few and in between for me. I like to think of Goodness as moments of clarity; moments of understanding; moments of having your heart feel tingly like you did something right, or you did something justly. Goodness to me is a feeling of being “free” from the hard stuff I go through on a daily basis. Goodness is a gift from God; a feeling that I wouldn’t want to feel all the time, because it woulen’t hold the same meaning or feeling. Goodness are moments that you smile to yourself and put your head down because you felt good about yourself for a moment! Goodness is when you can breathe and say “I have a moment to feel free and be open to hear and be”. Goodness is something that shouldn’t be taken for granted as it’s a gift; it’s a feeling that is not happy, not sad, not angry, not excited, but content. Goodness is also a feeling when you are connected to those […]

Where God Meets Us . . .

This is the most beautiful place to be – “The Sunspots” . . . since I was a child, I have always found my comfort in the “sunspots” on the floor. I would wake up in the morning and find the sunspots on the livingroom floor, where I would lay in them. I always thought to myself “This is where God is” .. it’s warm and inviting, it’s safe and holds no fear.. when you lay in the sunspots, there is no darkness, there is no sadness, there is not troubles, or worries. God meets us in the sunspots, where we can pray, and be with him in peace. I have done this since I was a child, and even today I find comfort in the “sunspots” .. whether they be on the floor, or in my bed when the sun shines just right.. or even outside in between tree’s with shade in between.. I dont think there is any better feeling than being in the “sunspots”.. I truly believe it’s where God meets us, talks to us, and makes us feel […]

Possitive Energy!

I saw this banner and I was immediately attracted to it’s style.. it makes you feel the energy!! I work alot around energy and connection… energy to me is about how things feel around me… is it safe, is it cold, is it warm, is it inviting, or is it disconnecting? does the energy allow me to talk freely, or is it so thick that I revert back to my old way of silence? For me, energy in a room sets the mood, it tells me whether or not I need to scan or just be. I feel that connection and energy are 2 separate things… connection is how you feel connected to a person… energy is about the feel of the  space you are in.. the energy has nothing to do with the person, but everything to do with the space the person is in. My mood fluctuates all the time through site, smell, and energy in the room.. I am always looking for “positive” energy to work off of, so that the connection to the people around me […]

A Home Well Lived in

We love our new home.. we just recently moved about 2 months ago, 5 houses down, into a newly built home. I thought I was moving into a smaller house, but in real, I think it’s slightly bigger.. it still has 4 bedrooms, with a finished basement and a livingroom that is off the masterbedroom… I have to say it’s more our style. one of the things that make my house a home, is the portraits that I have in every room. I am not done putting up all the portraits just yet, but it’s getting there! I make a theme of photos around the house, to show what our life is like through photographs! I think it’s the best feature in a home.  One of my favorite parts of the house is the FOYER where there is a painted tree with portraits.. lots of photos, and candles.. I am still working on adding more photos. The kitchen is big and has bar-stools.. we I turned the livingroom into a photography room because I am not one that really likes […]

God’s Home

I heard a wonderful quote today in church, and I have not stopped thinking about it since… the quote was “Church is not a club for saints, but a hospital for sinners” How true is that? people think that if you go to church that is automatically makes you a worthy person of God in his eyes.. people think that all the “good” people go to church.. but in real, we need to look at church as a hospital for sinners.. we go there to be in gods word, be around God’s people; all in unity to show your love for him and the people and most of all yourself. Church is a place to pray for the sins that take over you, the sinner that all of us have inside of us.. we always try and be “good” people “sin-free” people, but we all have sin.. church is not a place for saints, people are not saints, they are sinners, but when you go to church, you are showing that you are gods child, capable of SIN and FORGIVENESS!

Life in Transfiguration

Father Larry spoke in the Homily on Sunday about “Transfiguration” .. what does that mean for us today? God took 3 of his disciples and brought them up to the mountain-top to show them a glimpse of what “Heaven” is, the glory of god shining before them.. God wanted to give them a feel for what GLORY is.. The disciples said, we should stay here, build 3 tents and be in this glory.. but God said to them “NO” .. You need to go back down off the mountain and go through life to get to this glorious place.. How that pertains to life today, is we know what the GLORY of God can do for us, if we follow.. we hear and have faith in what Peter, James and John saw.. the glory of god, what heaven is like, what the peace of being at the top of the mountain can do for us. God’s word was “you need to come down from the mountain”.. go through the trenches of life, so that you can be at the top […]
