Ashes

Our moments of life pass us by ever so quickly and today begins the journey of LENT….a time to renew and rethink, a time to be selfless and to enjoy simplicity.

Ashes are placed on our forehead to begin the journey of LENT.

May your moments of the next 40 days be filled with hope, kindness, and love.

Snowbound with a Pasty

It's so bitterly cold and windy here in Northern Michigan. Why am I still here? I was suppose to move to Los Angeles months ago. If I were in Los Angeles right now I wouldn't be snowbound.


                                           perfect comfort food on a cold winter day

During the bitter cold winter days there's nothing more satisfying than a flaky pasty filled with vegetables. This afternoon I got to leave work early along with my co-workers because of the frightful winter weather. When I got home I heated a homemade vegetable pasty in my oven and enjoyed eating it inside my warm cozy apartment while the wind was howling outside.

What better way to spend moments of comfort with some comfort food when trying to stay indoors away from a winter blizzard. When you find yourself homebound enjoy moments of comfort.

When life brings you LEMONS….drink LEMON-AID

Food is comfort but when we overload on junk food it eventually brings us down and makes us feel sluggish. Like the sunshine, lemons are bright and yellow. Lemons are nature's gift and they make a great lemon-aid that will make your body feel good.

Upon rising take a few moments and start the day with a glass of room temperature water and squeeze one whole lemon into the water. When this lemon-aid is drunk first thing in the morning it will flush out the toxins and your body will feel so much better. When your body feels better your mind will feel better too.

Health is wealth and when you're healthy life just feels better.

                                             Lemons are nature's gift to us

Silence

Sometimes we need moments of silence to seek the answers we're finding. 
Nature is often a good place to find that silence and renew the mind and spirit.
Today as I walked the deserted grounds of an authentic fishing village I took time
to bask in the beauty and remain silent. Oh….how good that felt.

Take some moments out of your busy schedule to be with nature; ask, seek, and find those answers you need and BELIEVE you'll receive them.

"FAITH is BELIEVING in things when common sense tells you not to."

The Groundhog

Today is GROUNDHOG DAY in the United States……the day to find out from our reliable groundhog if winter will last another six weeks. Mr. Groundhog decided that winter will last another six weeks.

Winter isn't so bad if you take moments to appreciate what it has to offer like curling up near the fireplace with a good book, sipping on some hot cocoa, or watching a good movie.  You can ski or snowboard, sled or ice skate, ice fish or snowmobile…..

The white snow blanketed across the landscape is picture perfect and although the sidewalks and roads can be icy eventually the ice will melt. Soon winter will say goodbye and spring will bring new life so even though the days are dark and short enjoy those moments of winter.

Thank you Mr. GROUNDHOG for the weather update!
