Live simply, Love generously, Care deeply, Speak kindly, Leave the rest to God.

Everything comes to us that belongs to us

If we create the capacity to receive it.

I had a very wonderful experience this past weekend – I attended a celebration of life service for a friend who passed at age 91, in San Diego.

Jim Williams lived in the apartment two doors down from Dr. Betty Ann Coats, who nursed me through my treatment for cancer.

I've heard the expression celebration of life before, but in the truest sense of the phrase this really was a celebration. Jim had six children, a bunch of grand kids and a great grand child en route, and THEY showed that their dad had lived a wonderful life. Their actions were uplifting, upbeat, and caring, just like Jim: Proof that the apple does not fall far from the tree.

I found myself saying: “This is how I would like to be remembered!”

It is a rare occasion to attend a going home service and leave feeling better afterwards than you did going in.

Thanks, Jim!

I also added a link this week to my life scriptures section on the menu on your right. I think you’ll find it interesting: “Spiritual but not religious.”

As always, I thank you for your time.

“More important than the quest for certainty is the quest for clarity.” - Francois Gautier -

It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving.

I remember when I was a young child I loved trains. I still do and many memories of train rides with my Uncle Joe and Cousin Betty, who have made the great transition. My friend June sent me this great train ride and I thought I’d share it this week with you.

This is Floyd Cramer at the piano. Wait for the pictures to come on and have your volume on. This is really a beautiful trip. CLICK HERE!

As always, I thank you for your time.
