Slowing down the pace of life

While on vacation recently, I decided to go to the pool behind the cluster of villas where we were staying. The tranquil pool was surrounded by beautiful trees draped with spanish moss. The path to the pool was a set of square concrete steps sitting atop the ground.  The square steps were only about 3-4 inches apart and since my […]

I am fortunate that in a […]

Is your life source sustainable?

A lot has been said and written regarding renewable energy as it relates to sustaining our environment. The use of power sources that are limitless, like the wind and sun, is what “going green” is all about. Businesses talk about sustaining their brand influence, sustaining their culture and their success. Like you, I want to […]

Stress, Blankets and Hearing from God…

It seems like I live my work-week and much of my weekends with stress at my side. The stresses and demands of the day often take me off task, they cloud my thinking, interfere with my quiet connectedness to God, they push and edge their way into my life very quickly and at the same […]
