Easter is a holy season – a time to remember the sacrifice Jesus Christ made, the pain and suffering he endured, and the ultimate victory of his resurrection.
The first step in creating healthy balance in your life is to take an honest, compassionate look at yourself, and ask, “How am I, really? What stresses me and what blesses me?”
How are you doing with those New Year’s resolutions? Do you even remember them now that we are several weeks into the year? I know better than to rely on my memory.
WHETHER in a small island shop, or a humongous mall, there are plenty of gifts to choose from. During this busy season, when family members come together more than any other time of year, take a moment and consider a different gift you could offer. This one is more precious than gold, frankincense or myrrh. Better than a Tonka truck or a diamond tiara: It’s you.
This week, I will pause for applause, because I have just completed writing my first novel, A Scent of Sage. It will be published soon on Amazon, God willing.
