Recently I had the opportunity to include my story in this unique collection of 24 women’s journeys with the Divine Feminine. Each story is unique and inspirational. 

It was an interesting reflection for me as I’d just completed writing and publishing my own story ~ Me in the Middle ~ and the lessons learned along the way. My faith story was very much a part of my story yet I hadn’t thought about the divine feminine in my life and what that would mean.

What I love about Journeys with the Divine Feminine is that the book includes the stories of women from many religious experiences, as well as some without an experience in religion. They come from different parts of the world. Whatever their background, they grew and learned lessons from that and found their faith within.  As with most organized religions,  many of us grew up with a masculine God. We each found our ‘feminine divine‘ through our lives and through others along the way. I personally believe that God can’t be defined as male or female because God is beyond our comprehension. I do know that this divine power is love.

Me in the Middle of Lessons Learned ~ Letter F

My Life Is My Masterpiece ~ Lessons Learned

My theme ~ Lessons Learned.  I’ll be posting a word that begins with each letter of the alphabet that fits my theme.   This blog/website has become one way to share about myself to my children, my grandchildren and my extended family who are scattered all over the country and the world.  Hopefully, anyone who reads this will be in some way blessed by my throwing my words out onto the World Wide Web and into the Universe.  

 My About Page gives me the focus so that, as I age, I don’t forget what I worked so hard to learn.  It’s going to be fun and challenging!   I hope you’ll stick with me as I strive to meet my goal!!

When I speak of Faith in this post, I’m thinking more of a that inner conviction that life is good and, no matter what we face, we’ve got what it takes to make it through.  Each person’s individual belief in how to come to this inner conviction is unique to them.  I respect whatever religion or way of life that helps a person move along their path to  find this place of Faith, Hope and Love.  We’re all so much alike when it comes to these strivings.

January 14 – What Would Jesus Do

No matter how we express our faith; no matter what religion or no religion; as we move along in this life we can all unite together to make this a better world. ❤

THE RIVER WALK

what-would-jesus-do

The Lord replies, “I have seen violence done to the helpless, and I have heard the groans of the poor. Now I will rise up to rescue them, as they have longed for me to do. ” Therefore, Lord, we know you will protect the oppressed, preserving them forever from this lying generation, even though the wicked strut about, and evil is praised throughout the land. (Psalm 12:5,7-8)

Read: Genesis 30:1-31:16, Matthew 10:1-23, Psalm 12:1-8, Proverbs 3:13-15

Relate: What would Jesus do?

I wish you could meet Joe. Well, his name isn’t really Joe but because of what he does, I am not going to share his real name. He works with Doctors Without Borders. Officially he is here from another country to volunteer as a doctor in one of the nearby refugee camps. Unofficially, he spends quite a bit of time, how shall I say it… visiting friends a bit further…

Reblogging ~King for a Day!

The other day I was stopped at a red light while on my way home and noticed a man standing on the corner with a sign.  This is becoming more of an everyday experience and we all respond in whatever way we believe will help.  This time I watched as drivers, one after another, stopped in traffic to give this man money instead of hastily taking off once the light turned green.  Homelessness is getting worse and this just shouldn’t be.  The everyday good souls get this! It’s like we’re all invisible and not being heard.  ‘Interesting how we, the ordinary people can see it, but the politicians can’t’

Then I came home and read this great post by The Happy Quitter.  It would be so good if we could see more and more of the changes she would like to see.

Then one of my Facebook friends, my niece, posted a YouTube Video which was written, produced and filmed by her son and other young people in a summer program recently.  It can be done and it’s great to see young people looking for positive solutions that can bring about change.

Being an emperor or an empress for a day, think about all the wonderful things one could do -all the rules and regulation one could change. I would make radical changes, changes that might even anger a few.
