To Be Afraid or Not to be Afraid


So many people tell me how much they are afraid of what could go wrong today, tomorrow, or whenever. When we stop to analyze this it would be so much healthier, both for mind and body, to think about all the things that could go right. That’s more of an exciting way to live.

Be Still My Soul


Be still, my soul

within the confines

of this space

I call my home;

amid the myriad of

vein and muscle,

sinew, bone…rest.

Awake, my soul,

arise and soar

with wings of love

to claim the home

from whence you came:

the realm of God…

and take me there

when I no longer need

this tent which

bears my name.

Until thenĀ all is well;

be still, my soul.
