Thought For Today - 11/30/08

Today is Sunday – the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Many have become stimulated to shop while others are distracted from everything but shopping. For this time of the year – especially now due to all of the challenging many are facing – take your time to stay focus.

Don’t allow the flashing images of the holiday shopping get to you. Now is the time to really become steady, focused and unfazed. You can either turn off the distraction, do battle with it or simply chose to go within and stay in your breath, staying steady and focused in your practice of Yoga (not talking about the asanas).

The holiday season and every season are really about the greatest lesson ever learned – that it is only love that really matters. The greatest gift you can give someone during this season and every season is the gift of love!

Much love,

Thougth For Today - 11/29/08

Back in the 90’s I spent some time as a Suicide/Crisis phone counselor. The holidays were the center’s busiest time of the year. Many people were left alone. Many didn’t have friends or family to be with.

Start this weekend with opening up your heart. Begin to listen. If a person comes to mind – take the time to call them – see how they are doing – or send them positive energy their way.

Let them know you are here waiting to help them – to help nurture their spirit. Let me know that there is a world out there – wanting to teach them things about love, show them things about love, help them come more alive than they have ever been before.

Help them open their eyes open their senses, open their heart. Help them walk out the door, look around. Show them. Be their guide. Lead them where they need to be led.

You, reading this blog – listen, look, feel and become connected to those that are in need. You will bring healing to them!

Much love,

Thought For Today - 11/28/08

The next day after Thanksgiving is said to be the "biggest shopping day of the year!"

How about doing this before you go shopping? Ask God for wisdom, direction and understanding on what to do regarding your shopping this year. His answers can be given directly to you, or will bring you into Divine connections with individuals that can help you in the areas you lack wisdom and understanding.

God will always lead His children in the right direction and will never leave His children with their needs not being supplied or their desires not met. God will never lead His children into poverty.

Managing wisely what God has provided you and your family will make all the difference in your financial happiness and success!

Much love,

Happy Thanksgiving Day (Thought For Today - 11/27/08)

Today is Thanksgiving Day.

Today is a day that we celebrate in the United States – a national observance to thank God for all that He has done for us. Today is a day that we will spend time with family and friends. Some will shout, dance and rejoice as they are in the presence of their love ones. We all should do the same as giving thanks and praise to God – for Him blessing us to see another Thanksgiving.

If you really want to have something to shout about, in the New Testament, Jesus said, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

As we spend this day with family and friends – why not spend time praising and thanking Jesus for the abundant life He has provided for us? This is what and where true deliverance and freedom is.

Have a Blessed and Safe Thanksgiving Day!

Much love,

Thought For Today - 11/26/08

Your Yoga practice will and can only grow stronger as you practice meditation. Several of the students that attend the 7pm Friday night class I teach thanked me for allowing them to stay in Savasana longer. I see this as the only time most students actually do meditation. I tell them to find one happy thought and focus on that for the remainder of the class. With all the changes going on in the world, one minute people are happy and the next they are filled with fear – Savasana will help calm your brain.

You can rest in the mist of storms – in the mist of change, in the mist of fear – this is the lesson we must learn. I have mentioned this in the last few previous blogs – take as much Yoga as you can during this week and holiday season.

Ask your Yoga instructor if the Savasana can be a little longer. Or you can do as I do when I take a Yoga class. I generally go into Savasana a few minutes before the rest of the classes. I don’t disrespect the teacher or students. I just know I need as much Savasana and meditation as possible. It is what keeps me in faith – high spirits – happy and knowing that “all is well” and “all is good.”

Much love,

11/26 - Lunch With Natalie, 24HF (SL) Yoga Class & Me

Please join me and other 24HF members of the Southlake club this Wednesday (11/26) 12 noon at the Café Express in Southlake Town Center. We are doing a pre-baby shower for one of our members who is having her third child in January 2009.

I first met Natalie when she was pregnant with her second child. Now with her third child – her Yoga practice is amazing. She attends classes 2-3 times per week and yet does all of the poses in class. I felt it would be nice and great for us to just celebrate “her” this Wednesday. I will also put together a baby shower in December when we can shower her with gifts, etc. Look for coming details!

Also, bring your babies and kids to the outing. I can hold at least two babies at a time sitting down or standing up. (smile)

Much love,

My Monday (11/24)

I must write about my Monday (11/24). It was great day! I had lunch with a good friend who is also a student of Yoga. We shared things regarding life, including our desires to let people know about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you for lunch! (I’m not mentioning the name).

Later on, I received an email from another student of Yoga. Her email just made my day. She commented how she feels and sees the presence of God whenever she is around me. With the day I was having before lunch with the other student – I needed to hear that! It is my desire to let LOVE be KING in my life. And, you can replace the word “LOVE” with “GOD.” Thank you for the email(s). (I’m not mentioning the name.)

Monday night at the 8:15pm class I teach for 24HF – Royal Lane/Central location, I spent around 30 minutes after class talking to two of my favorite Yoga students. We have for the past several classes stayed afterward and practice poses such as scorpion, flying crow, handstand, and forearm handstand. Tonight, they learned side crow and one-legged crow. Afterward, we begin to talk about life and spiritual things. I connected with theses two members long before we met physically. Yes, you heard me right. But, I will not go into this subject in this blog. Nevertheless, we all left with a sense of peace, destiny, and purpose. Thank You both for allowing me to share and you receive. (I’m not mentioning the names).

And after I got home, I received an email from another student of Yoga. She sent me a Thanksgiving ecard. As I watched the card - tears being to form. Thank You for sending this card! (I'm not mentioning the name - but she is a financial advisor if you need one):)

OK, all of the above to say this. After writing the “thought for today for Monday.” My mind was attacked with sadness, judgment, and fear. The grip was tight. I didn't know how in the world I was going to be able to function for today.

For a brief moment, my mind was able to think of how bless I was. How truth always prevails. How God loves me so much. I then begin to feel an overwhelming sense of peace. It was such a vivid force that I was able to move forward and meet the 1pm lunch appointment.

Yes, today was a great day! My soul was touched. I touched someone’s soul.

Much love,

Thought For Today - 11/25/08

Well, we have only a few days before Thanksgiving is here. This is the start of winter holidays. This season can bring lots of focus on your deepest emotions and spiritual feelings.

As you get ready to move full force into this holiday season, make sure you check out your inner self. Don’t’ shop for gift, etc., as a holiday or social obligation. Create some space around the pressures that holidays can bring. Take as many Yoga classes as you can! If you can’t get to a class – take 15 minutes each day to practice at home.

Be generous with yourself and others – but especially yourself.

Much love,

Thought For Today - 11/24/08

This week as we approach Thanksgiving – it will be a great opportunity to give and show loving kindness to our families, friends and whoever we come in contact with. Let the loving kindness be unconditional, well wishing with an openhearted nurturing to others – just as they are.

Start today off by telling someone you “love them.” You will find many, many people need to experience and hear some positive words or phrases – especially from you. They want to experience a feeling of well-being and harmony in their lives. They want peaceful sleep. The want peaceful dreams. They want to wakeup to a peaceful morning. You can be the one to help them move into this experience – just by saying “I love you.”

Try it and let me know how it went.

Much love,

Today's thought is short but if you meditate on it - you will find so much, much in it!

The quote is from my pastor. She is the co-pastor at Eagle Mountain International Church in Newark, TX.

"But there are places to develop in the love of God that lead to a place where faith is more highly and accurately delivered and activated and used."
---Pastor Terri Copeland Pearsons

Thought For Today - 11/22/08

The weekend is here. Thank God!

This week was somewhat challenging for me spiritually. There were lots of things going on in the spirit world. Some things were uncertain while other things were unknown if there is a difference.

I felt like I really need a Yoga class for most of the week. As the week rolled on, I spent time or should I say quiet time listening. I found myself resting in the uncertain and unknown. I looked at the circumstances and simply begin to live moment-to-moment. Only then did I feel my spirit man begin to be renewed.

As I spent time in meditation (quiet time) this week – I saw my life unfold in a manner that was not measured in clock time, but in the eternal NOW. I actually surrender what I was hoping for to happen and just concentrated on the present.

I believe I did more head and hand stands this week than ever before. I find them a sort of meditation. As you come into your weekend – learn how to just live in the moment – the present – the now. Don’t resist, but relax and let go on any expectation.

Also, find a great Yoga class to take this weekend.

Much love,

Thought For Today - 11/21/08

When you are walking in love - you will see God in everything you come in contact with. The Bible has a scripture which states - having a clean, pure heart will allow you to see God. This does not mean that if you are not walking in love, have a clean or pure heart that you can not see God. You will see God, but not the true God. Your vision of God will appear in an impure form. You will not be able to see God in His true and pure nature. You will see Him in the wrong form or nature.

In my simple words - if your heart is not pure - your view or vision of God will be dark, and in demonic like nature. If your heart is not pure, full of love towards others, then by default, your God is what the Bible describes as the fallen angel - Satan.

Much love,

Thought For Today - 11/20/08

There is no situation that you have today or tomorrow that can’t be fixed if you have an increase of God in your life!

God has a plan for you. It is a good plan. The path that God calls you to leads you to the plan He has for this situation and that situation. You got to be in the right place in order to get the plan. God’s plan is so BIG – He gives it to you in small pieces. Ever piece He gives you is also so BIG.

God wants to bless you with His Master Plan. God’s Master Plan for your life requires you to be stretched! God will stretch you to the next level. The more you are stretch – the more you will do. And the more people you interact with will be blessed.

As you are being stretched – you can’t give up. You must have patience – you must believe! If you only take two (2) words from reading this blog with you today – let it be – “DON'T QUIT!”

Now, after everything is said and done – you have to believe God has a master plan for you. But, how do you believe God? By using your faith! You have to start right where you are. Spend time in prayer, listen to your spirit and dare to take the next step! You are born of God and God has a perfect plan for your life. You have walked by faith, stayed the course during the good time and the bad time.

All that God really wants is a yield vessel – a heart – an obedience heart where He can put His wisdom to work. You are committed to God and can commit to His Master Plan.

Now, just because God has a master plan for your life – you can ignore it and go about our own business. Then, you might not know the will of God for your life. But you can read the Bible and find out!

God is just looking for someone to work with. A person that will do whatever God says. Your desires will follow your intentions. The more you know about God – the more your desires will come to know the more about God. Whatever God has called you to – He has already prepared the way.

It may not be easy, but it will be bigger than anything you are doing now! Everything you are called to do by God – His Master Plan For Your Life is impossible to the natural man. But God will supernaturally get you through it! Put your trust in God – you will receive the wisdom from Him regarding your situation and His Master Plan for your life.

Much love,

Thought For Today - 11/19/08

Another Yoga student that attends classes I teach at the 24HF Carrollton club had her baby last week. The baby was due on November 18. Tracy (the mother) was even in class on Saturday, November 8 – yet practing her Yoga for the full hot hour-long class. (smile) Tracy believed that the baby would come before November 18. The baby did. The baby came on Wednesday, November 12.

Just as Tracy believed the baby would come before November 18, many of us believe for things we desire to come to pass. The things we believe for may come instantly, the following week or even years later (I hope not that long).

Back to Tracy. As I watched her practice Yoga during class, she was always so calm. She was never anxious about any pose she performed. But, I was. (smile) In watching Tracy in her state of calmness, I remembered patience implies calmness. Calmness is the opposite of anxiety. When we are anxious about a situation, we can become so concerned about it that our minds are constantly working, trying to figure out what to do and how to do it.

My advise to you and to myself – don’t be anxious about anything!

Much love,

Thought For Today - 11/18/08

The other day I talked to a student after class was over. One of the things she shared with me was her believing God for a situation that was going on in her home. In response to our conversation, I asked her to now “Thank God” for taking care of the situation she prayed over and for. I also suggested she confess God’s Word over the situation daily and several time throughout the day or whenever it comes to her mind.

Many of you reading the blog for today are probably experiencing some type of situation that requires you trusting and believing God to help. I too, believe God for several things regarding my life.

We must wait patiently in faith even when we don’t see, hear, or feel anything that indicates we have the answer to our prayers. Yes, it’s challenging on our emotions to have patience when we don’t have tangible proof of what we believe God for.

But, if we want to receive the promise, we must consistently speak God’s Word and patiently hold fast to our confession of faith. (I am so talking to myself in this blog.) If we want to become spiritually mature and receive the full benefits of God’s blessings, patience is not an option. Patience is something we must develop in our life!

No matter how long it take for our answer to come, we must see ourselves possessing the promises of God before they are manifested in the natural. (More examples - another student believes for a certain MBA position, another one believing for new fitness clients for her personal training business, I believe for a significant other).

When it does not look like anything is happening, we must not become impatient and try to make it happen ourselves. Instead, we must wait patiently. We must stand fast on our confession of faith and believe what God said in His Word. Then, we watch Him execute His promises on our behalf!

Much love,

Your New Week Is Here!

Before you start your new week let me suggest you take a few minutes to think about how your week/weekend was. Did you give service to anyone? Did you give something as simple as a smile? Did you have a great attitude? Did anyone benefit from anything you did? Did you make a positive difference in someone’s life? Were you ever self-centered? Did you judge someone harsh?

As you start your new week, find someone you can give a gift to, such as the gift of love and joy. Be nice, kind, gentle and nurturing this week to someone. Give comforting and encouraging words. Send someone a card. Tell someone how much you appreciate him or her. Tell someone they are wonderful! Tell someone they are perfect! You may even be prompted to pray for someone this week – do it! Don’t wait until Christmas or for a birthday to come to give a gift. Give it now. Give it often. Give if freely. Give it through out the entire year!

Much love,

Thought For Today - 11/16/08

This Sunday and this coming week - share the love of God - the love of Jesus with people. People need God in their lives. If you don't think so, you have not been looking around. This world is having challenging times and it's not getting better.

We, as lovers of God should be stepping up our efforts to reach those individuals who don't know God. You know what? It's going to take many of us working together to get this done.

The world has seen Jesus as a religious figure. We need to show Him as a Savior and a person who is approachable. I share every chance I get what God, His Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit has done for me.

People need a God that is not far away - one they can talk to. This is the kind of God I serve. I know Jesus by name and He knows me by name. Jesus wants to have the type of relationship which is easy flowing with everyone.

You want to know why I love so much? Well, it's because He loved me first and now I love. I see many confused, lost individuals daily who are without any type of direction. They are out in the world wandering, trying to live on their own and make their own way.

My job and responsibility is not to condemn them, but to show them love and how to get connected to God and find a lasting relationship with God's Son - Jesus. People really need Him for sure in their lives now. I know I do!

Much love,

There are several women who are expecting that are so faithful to the Yoga classes I teach. I have seen them practice Yoga from the very start of their pregnancy to only 1-2 days before the baby is due. I actually had one student who had begun dilating come to class. Yes, she did have the baby the next day. (smile)

I often tell these mothers the practice of Yoga and Yogic breathing can smooth the progress of a comfortable pregnancy and help them prepare for an easier and quick labor.

I have seen from personal experience the pregnant students attending classes babies are calm and generally will not cry or become shy when around strangers. I call them “Yoga babies.”

I had lunch the other day with a Yoga student who had just recently had her second child. The first was a boy and this one was a girl. Kara is her name and she is adorable! So, we’re there having lunch. I’m talking and Kara looks at me every time I speak. Her mother Stacey says hey, how about holding Kara. I said sure. She came right into my arms and begins to smile (I could have held her all day).

Stacey went onto say Kara is a mama’s girl and generally cries when in someone else’s arm if she (Stacey) is around. As I began to talk to Kara – she is smiling. Stacey then says Kara knows my voice. Stacey practiced Yoga 1-3 times per week when she was expecting and was still doing head stands way into her third trimester.

As Stacey made the statement about Kara knowing my voice – I then remember others “Yoga babies” reacted the same as they heard my voice when their mothers would bring them to or near me.

Writing all of the above to say this – our bodies go through many changes such as pregnancy, shifts from emotional changes or stress. With all the changes, there is a practice of Yoga suitable for each change. As you go about your weekend – listen to your body like you have never before. It is changing. Take notice.

Much love,

The other day I had lunch with one of the Yoga students that attend classes I teach. She is an aspiring Yoga teacher in the making. She has been called to reach, minister to, and show individuals a better way of living – spiritually, mentally and physically. I’m going to be there for her and push her to be the best she can be in whatever she is called to do and be.

One of the things I shared with her is as she moves forward in her calling there will be resistance. There will be a battle – not physical but spiritual. The battle will be both internal and external. She has no choice but to move past the fight in order to walk out her calling – her destiny.

I advised her that she must not quit and become defeated. I stated the universe has her back. Well, actually God has her back. I told her to begin to use her faith on purpose and use only words that will bring positive results.

You too can use the same advice I gave her. I’m here for you too!

Much love,

Change is here and it happens more often than you think!

Daylight savings time has come about again. We moved back one hour. With this occurrence, it now gets dark around 5:30pm. Many chose to stay inside their homes and not explore the outside much due to the time change. Yet, this is a beautiful time of the year. The weather is cooler and the holidays are upon us.

With seasons changing – this also means our lives and bodies are changing. Even the Yoga classes I teach are changing. I’m finding out I don’t always have to teach the same thing or even be the same teacher for each class. Some classes we laugh and play while other classes I push the students to the limit. I’m teaching more basic poses, getting the students to return to more settled sequences – those that keep their bodies warm through out the entire class.

However you experience the season of fall, don’t fight the lessons it brings into your life over the next few months. Experiment. Play. Let the beauty of the season find expression in your life.

Much love,

Be Happy!

I come in contact with so many people that don’t think Yoga works. They don’t think that believing in God works. They only have a negative outlook on life. Doubt follows them around daily.

I tell them that not only does Yoga works – God works too! My experience with both is positive and uplifting. I have had direct experience with them. Yoga is designed to lead you to into oneness - with me oneness with God. Some times it’s challenging to remind individuals that the true purpose of our Yoga practice is connection to ourselves, connection to one another, connection to God – not separation.

Today - use your imaginations to create positive pictures of and for your life. Make a list of things that will make you happy. If you don't know or run out of things to put on your list - ask God to help and show you. Maybe, even during a Yoga class you will come up with items to put on your list.

Get a clear picture of you doing all the things you like to do. Take the time to see yourself being happy. Let doubt find its way elsewhere. However I can help let me know. We are all in this together.

Much love,

From A Yoga Student

I received this from a Yoga student today. I thought it would be great to share as she did with me.

Enjoy . . .

"If you're trying to achieve something, there will be obstacles...But these don't have to stop you from your goal.If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up...Just figure out how to climb it, go through it, or get around it!"

Do you know what it is like facing a situation so huge it seems irresponsible not to worry about it? There may not be a thing you can do about it, but you feel like you need to at least be concerned. Somebody needs to! Besides, you don’t see anyone else jumping up and down to help.

I know it will be challenging. Don’t give into those thoughts. But, get into the Word. Find every scripture possible regarding your situation that guaranteed your situation would be taken of. Then, give the situation to God. Let Him deal with it. Then, don’t’ touch that situation again with your thought life again.

After all, God really does care for you and me!

Roller Derby League - Assassination City

Hey, I wanted to share this information with you. I have conducted two Yoga sessions with this roller derby league called Assassination City. Once a month we get together and practice Yoga. They are such a great group of people. Their hearts are so open to receiving. They have allowed me to come into their mist and share the practice of Yoga with them.

I am so blessed to part of so many individuals lives. Destiny isn't some distant place, or one moment in our lives. Destiny is now. We should always cherish the present. I cherish where I am now. Thank you Assassination City for allowing me to spend this time with you.

Have you ever woke up feeling numb? Woke up tired spiritually, mentally and physically. You somehow managed to move around, get ready to go about with your day in spite of how you were feeling. As you move through out your day - a feeling or emotion comes over you. A feeling being somewhat angry. Not anger with God, people or situations, but just angry – with you! Really, can those of you reading this blog relate to what I’m saying?

We all need healing in many areas of our life. Surprise! Yes, the "we" word does include me - needing healing. We searched for a map in hope of finding directions for the healing that is needed. But, no map is found yet.

There have been times in our lives where people would show or point us in the way we should go. We were clear on our next step. But now it is as if we have reached a point in our life where there is no map, no itinerary, no set agenda or person to help us find our way. It is because we are to trust God totally.

Many of us, including myself have come to a place in our life in that the next step we take is one of the most important steps we will take. We must live from information given by God. This lesson is very challenging. There are days when too much noise is around us. We can't hear God’s directions. Yet, we know He (God) is where our healing lies.

During this time - strive for this to be a time of joy, a time of really trusting God on what He has done for you in the past and present. I know trusting God is the best place to be. We must press forward in patience and believe that we don’t need to try to make the healing come. We will just let it happen. We will let God show what is next for our life. He will lead us. He will tell us when things are now right.

Special Note:
If any reading this blog know of a place locally that I can get away for a weekend to get renewed (spirit, mind, body), etc. – please email me at

Happy Sunday!

If you are not living and walking in faith – you are living and walking in a survivor mode. Therefore, darkness has attacked your family, your finances, your health and the list goes on and on.

Darkness attacks your senses and makes you feel or think your faith is not working. This is the time that your faith is working at it's best and your deliverance is so close!

What you got to do is to hold onto your faith. You are not fighting darkness – you are fighting to hold onto to your faith. The Bible tells us to “fight the good fight of faith.” (Read I Timothy 6:12)

Where is your faith? We are going to the other side. God didn’t say He would prosper us if the economy were good. He said we are going to the other side no matter is the economy is good or bad.

It is time to stop living from paycheck to paycheck. (Read Psalms 112) We are to live from blessings to blessings to blessings. Faith will always get the job done. You can take this to the bank!

Faith accesses another realm. How do you get to the other realm? Spend time in meditating the Word of God. There in, will your way become prosperous and you will have good success. (Read Joshua 1:8)

Much love,

The weekend is here.

Some may find themselves feeling trapped or stuck this weekend. You are probably feeling this way because you have folded into yourself. Well, don’t resist – but take deep inhales and slowly exhales – exploring what’s making you fold into yourself.

There are times and especially during weekends we find ourselves in such an inwardly focused position, which in reality is FEAR. Yes, there is that word again – FEAR. Many are so afraid of themselves.

There are so many frantic distractions facing the world today. We can get caught up in them and begin to feel trapped. This weekend – take a Yoga class. Allow Yoga to help you face the inner things going on with you. Yes, let Yoga help you bring fear to the forefront. Only then will you be able or in position to relax and find the truths that will overcome the fear. One of the main truths is – God is so in love with you!

When I started Yoga at the age of 46 years old, it allowed me to connect with my body natural and spiritual strength in a way that I had not been able to in the past.

Yoga has brought out in me what is beautiful and inspirational. As I have mentioned in blogs before, Yoga connected me closer to my love walk with God. Yoga has also help bring to surface what I was fearful of and what I had been avoiding.

For example, I use to be afraid to do a head or handstand. When the instructor would say – go to the wall – today we are working on head and hand stands. I would just shut down on the inside – fear would kick in and stay there.

But, as I continued my Yoga practice, one day taking a class, my instructor said “wall work,” I looked at fear and said within myself “bring it on.” I then was able to do the wall work poses. Now, this didn't happen over night. It was a process. It doesn't matter how long the process takes. Just keep moving forward. And, before you know it - you will say the same words as you look fear in the eyes saying "bring it on."

As you go about this day and week and rest of the year, don’t allow fear to say unkind words to you. Don’t allow fear to bring unkind thoughts into your mind. Think about this. Would God say those unkind words or bring those unkind thoughts to you? NO! They are from darkness and it has no place in your life!

Much love,

Happy Birthday Jeffrey Paul!

Today is my oldest son – Jeffrey Paul 28th birthday. I don’t have a picture I can show you. However, he is a fine looking young man. He is married and has an almost one-year-old son.

Jeffrey and David (youngest son) are both receivers of God’s promises. I boldly proclaim that God has prepared a bright and glorious future for them and their families. They will live in God’s abundance in every area of their lives. God’s blessings will overtake them. God will direct their steps. God’s favor will be upon them, and they will succeed at the assignment God has for their lives. They are quick to take a stand for what is right and against what is wrong. They are both man of peace and kindness, with a heart of compassion for others. Both sons will be a living testimony of God’s love, power and grace. They will live a strong, victorious, and God-centered life. Amen!

Happy Birthday Jeffrey Paul!

I love you!

Thought For Today - 11/6/08

When I did my teacher training with Baron Baptiste, we would do a silent walking meditation each day of the training. It was at this time in my life, I learned to relax, connect with my body and spirit in a way I had never before. I became present, full and complete than ever before. Since then, my life has become a walking deliberate meditation.

If you want a revelation of what you are to do – you need to spend time in meditation.

If you are tired and discouraged of not seeing results in your life you had hoped for - you need to spend time in meditation. When you feel it’s time to give up - you need to spend time in meditation.

Meditation will help you leave your daily routine. It will help you slow down. It will help you relieve stress, tension and fear. Meditation will bring peace, rest and love. It will renew you and refresh your life.

Take the time to meditate!

Much love,

Thought For Today - 11/5/08

If we don't know who God is, it doesn't matter how much information and knowledge we have of Him. We can have head full of Biblical knowledge. We can read the Holy scriptures and know the Bible from front to back. We can study about the love of God until we have memorized every scripture it takes about it in the Bible. We can know all of the steps and path to living for God. But, we will not have the thrust to put the above things into action unless we spend time and fellowship with God and then continue to maintain a living relationship with Him.

At the end of the matter, it is not what we know that counts, but what we actually do with the information we have obtained. Without fundamental, continual communion with God, we will not be spiritually strong enough to know what we are to do in all circumstances.

The key to maintaining a living relationship and fellowship with God is staying connected to Him daily. It must be the number one and main concern of your life.

Much love,

Today is November 4, 2008. We are electing our next President and Vice-Present of the United States today. What a privilege and honor for us to be able to participate in such an event as this.

Obey God and vote as He directs you. If the individuals you voted for don't happen to win - don't fear or fret. God looks at your obedience in voting as He directed you as a seed sowed. God will take care of you - you will lack for nothing. God has a plan for you and me. And, it is a very, very good plan.

The Holy Scriptures tells me in Psalms 75:6-7 "No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt a man. But it is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another." (NIV)

Let us keep our love walk. Love God. Love people as God has loved us and continues to love us. LOVE NEVER FAILS - nor does the plan God has for us.

Much love,

Weekend - 10/31/08

My weekend was quiet and challenging mentally/spiritually. For the past several months – I have been challenged mentally and spiritually with situations and circumstances involving my life.

Some of you reading this blog may have or are currently experiencing challenges in your life. Some of you may have hit rock bottom while others are near. Regarding myself, I can only say “I’m on my way up.”

I know that God has a plan for me. But, I must have faith that God does have a plan for me. I have been under so much pressure and spiritual attacks for the past several months, I had begun to grow stiff spiritually and got anxious. But, through faith, I had to regain my confidence that God was, is and will always be in control.

I had to and will continue to believe the following: (1) God has a perfect plan for my life. (2) I will receive God’s plan for my life by faith – not wavering – sight unseen. (3) I know God’s plan will first come out of the spiritual realm and manifest itself in the nature. (4) I do have the ability to hear God’s perfect plan for my life. (5) I will be obedient to God’s perfect plan for my life. Whatever He tells me to do – that I will do!

I have asked God for forgiveness for sins of omission and commission regarding me. I know God heard my prayer and I receive His forgiveness and that He will give back (restore) my first love with Him.

I pray the same for you and that He would give us our nation back!

Much love,

Thought For Today - 11/3/08

God lives in me and you. We just have to get it clear with our spirit that He lives in us. When I meet people, I want them to experience a pure, sweet, living presence of God living in my life. When people look into my eyes, I want them to see God. I want them to see His love.

People are looking for God. Can they see God in your eyes? People are really not interested in a form, a figure, or a name of God. They only want to see God.

Is God in your life? Is God in Joseph? Is God speaking through Joseph? Is God speaking through you? Is God moving in the life of Joseph? Is God moving in your life? Are we seeing God? Are they seeing God?

Something to think about.

Much love,

Thought For Today - 11/2/08

Today is Sunday. Don't settle for small things in life. They will come and tempt you. They will try to get you off your path. You must say "NO." A word that many people don't use hardy anymore. Tell those small things that come to tempt you that your purpose in life is something different. You are moving forward. You don't have time for the sideshows or whatever they may have to offer!

As you move forward on your path and your journey, things and people will for sure tempt you or at least try. Again, say "NO" to these distraction - small things. Your path and journey is taking you to another level - something that is eternal and that will last forever and ever and ever. God's way is your way!

Therefore, my dear love ones, stay in love, stay in faith and do whatever God tells you to do rather than listening to the voices of the small things.

Much love,

Thought For Today - 11/01/08

The weekend is here and the start of a new month. We are almost to the end of 2008. So many students in the Yoga class I teach are such multi-taskers. They are what I consider “movers and shakers.” They are constantly doing more than one thing at a time. I have caught several during Yoga class – receiving and sending text on their cell phone. Yes, you heard me correct.

What these students have unsuccessful realize is on some level dealing with challenging demands of society today will cause stress and even illness. They don’t think they can do less in a society that always wants more.

Yoga will allow or caused us to slow down. It is impossible to practice a challenging pose (i.e. – Tree Pose) without learning to focus and letting go of the thoughts that attack our mind during times of stress. As we focus in class, this is the first step of becoming present.

So, lets take this week and the first day of November 2008 to slow down, stop the multi-tasking and start to only doing one thing at a time.

Much love,
