 “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.”  Proverbs 31:30
 This is one of many verses a father should share with his daughter. When I was growing up, I was truly jaded by my definition of "beauty." Thank God I have six brothers who defined "beauty" and showed me constantly how much of it I was/am. And most importantly, the fact that beauty may get you in the room, but common sense will keep you in there.

Happy Father's Day to all readers, and Namaste.

Psalm 139:13
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. (NIV)
Thanking our Heavenly Father for allowing me to see my milestone day! He has brought me thus far, and I pray that he will continue to love me, unconditionally, in spite of my flaws, and continue to lead me on the path that He has laid before me.

Amen & Namaste :-)

Me, dancing like nobody's watching

Unforgotten youth

Getting ready to soar into the sky

... and feel the sunshine on my face

In two days, I'll be 50 years old. It sounds funny to say since I don't feel that old at all. I remember when I was 17, I wondered what I would look like at 30; when I look in the mirror, I don't see any difference except the usual 'life lines' that come along. Oh, and gray hair, but "Mocha Ash #4" takes care of that. :-)

I don't have any major life plans going on. My greatest accomplishment to date is my autistic son, who has grown into a handsome, amazing 25 year old young man. I like to say we 'grew up with each other.'

I am still a huge work in progress. There are areas of my life that I'm unhappy with; may this milestone let me examine myself deep within & free myself from all the mental blockage that I carry. I hope to speak my mind more freely; allow myself to feel more deeply, grow more confident with myself & be more kind/gentle with and to myself.

May I continue to get wiser in my faith and walk the path God puts before me. May I continue to be kind and compassionate to those in need; may I believe in love for myself and open my heart to the possibilities that "it" could happen to and for me.

But mostly, may I release my inner fears and live my best life. For another 50 years.

Namaste. :-)

(Isaiah 41:10) Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not gaze about, for I am your God. I will fortify you. I will really help you. I will really keep fast hold of you with my right hand of righteousness.’
I have to admit that I've been feeling 'lost and wandering' in my head. I don't know what path to take for a 'new career' move. It drains me to even think about it. My doctor told me at a recent check up that maybe I'm not ready and to just enjoy each moment of this time. She said I'll know when I'm ready. In the meanwhile, it's hard to focus. I don't like feeling distant from God. But I must always remember, when I feel far from Him, it's not He who moved - it's me.

I think it's time I 'scooted' back over next to Him.

Amen. :-)
