Building A Better Self-Image

How we feel about ourselves affects virtualy every aspect of our lives. From the way we function at work, in love, in sex, to the way we operate as parents, to how high in life we are likely to rise. Self-Esteem is the key to success and failure. Why do some of us end up short on self-esteem? We can blame our families for failing to nurture a sense of self-love, or society for tellig […]

Hexagram 36, 45, 52: Community, Gathering Together, Keeping Still

I would like to make mention here that during my Mom’s critical condition the family practiced Community, Gathering Together and Keeping Still in Praying for her recovery. Like a miracle, she’s now out of the Intensive Care Unit and much improved. Community: A family that works is one where healthy interdependence is supported. Leadership is essential, but strong kinship is dependent upon every member of the clan. Trust, shared responsibilities and good communication are essential. […]

A Beautiful Miracle

I have to share this beautiful miracle that renews our spirit and gives joy to the heart.  This tiny deer was delivered by Caesarean section at a Wildlife hospital after a car killed his mother. Little Rupert, who is so small he can fit in an adult’s hand, was born after vets failed in their battle to save his mother.  At just 6″ tall and weighing over a pound, he is now in an incubator […]

A FAMILY THAT PRAYS TOGETHER STAYS TOGETHER

I have vivid memories of my years growing up in a big family.  What a wonderful gift our families are.  It is a community of love and sharing, beautiful for the problems it poses and the rewards it brings.  We have all experienced the difficulties as well as the rewards of living together in family. Jesus Himself chose to come among us in a family.  He was born into poverty, with a carpenter as His […]

Angels We Have Heard On High

Angels have been with us since the beginning of time.  But what are they?  By the Christian point of view, an angel is a pure spirit created by God.  They are called angels (from Greek “messenger”) because they carry out mission at God’s command. Do you know that in medieval angelology, (a branch of theology having to do with angels), that there are nine orders of angels?  They are the Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Dominions or […]
