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.
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.
