    How the light comes I cannot tell you how the light comes. What I know is that it is more ancient than imagining. That it travels across an astounding expanse to reach us. That it loves searching out what is hidden what is lost what is forgotten or in peril ... Read more

    Good morning, the sun showed up early yesterday and stayed all day, but it was chilly in the morning. Started my day with another walk around the neighborhood.. 3 miles this time. I'm liking the solitude and time alone with my thoughts. I know that sounds weird in this current environment, but it'... Read more

  • A Fistful of Dandelions

    5/13/2020 5:16:05 AM, by JSTETSER

    I have received many lovely bouquets in my life, but the ones that touched my heart the most came from my sons when they were very young. There's something very sweet about receiving a bouquet of dandelions from a young child. I think that God made dandelions so that sweet young children will... Read more

  • Seeing The Progress!

    5/12/2020 5:48:21 AM, by JSTETSER

    Recently I had some blood work done for my upcoming doctor’s visit. I was so happy to see that my A1C has gone down. I’m still in the “pre-diabetic range”, but after years of being diagnosed with T2D (Type 2 Diabetes), that is to be expected. My level went down from 7.2 to 6.8. Th... Read more

    I decided I have everything I need to live a happy life at this time.

By resisting something you are directing negative energy to that object. So I will focus my e... Read more

    Let someone love you the way you are - as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is... Read more
