You Wait Differently

When you understand God is never late, you wait differently.

I saw this quote randomly on Facebook this morning. A friend of a friend’s post that impacted me in an unusual way. Read the quote slowly and see if it does the similarly for you. Did you feel that bump in your chest? That thump thump of remembrance that there’s a higher power helping us when we choose to think, to believe, to remember when we get quiet within?

We get so hyped up these days trying to make things work. At least that’s how it feels to me. People are fearful and doubting and there’s so much unrest, so many emotional frustrations spewing…I guess that’s why I tend to get quiet for long periods of time. I just don’t like to be around those frenetic energies. I don’t care for drama, so I don’t engage.

But this quote: When you understand God is never late, you wait differently – it hit a chord of peace within me so I wanted to share it with you today. I hope it brings you peace within to hold in your heart and allow it to heal.

Our movement towards a gentle understanding is happening. We are at the point of embracing peace within or not. Alway free will, your personal choice. Choose wisely. Be patient. God is never late.

Nothing Can Be Done 2 Days Out of the Year



“There are only two days in the year

that nothing can be done.

One is called Yesterday and the other is called Tomorrow.

Today is the right day to Love, Believe, Do and mostly Live.”

~His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama


Just a little reminder for us all.  May you enjoy every precious moment, especially this one!

Never Give Up!

We Have the Power!



“We are responsible for what we are,

and whatever we wish ourselves to be,

we have the power

to make ourselves.”

– Swami Vivekananda

I found this quote enlightening and felt the need to share it with you.  For it seems to me that at times, we forget that we hold the power of our dreams, our hopes and our Divine Purpose and as Swami Vivekananda says, ‘we have the power to make ourselves,’ which I find reassuring.

So if you are troubled, take heart.  You hold the power to make yourself.  It is your choice to make yourself however you wish.  So wish well ~ wish with a kind, open, loving heart and hold your power to make yourself the YOU you wish to be.

You count.  You are special.  You are empowered.

Now, shine like the sun!

Shine On!




What is Humility?


Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less. — C.S. Lewis

The credit for the above goes to MLAngel who sent me this tidbit when I asked her to give me her ‘go to inspiration’ for which I am, as always, grateful.

What is Strength Undefeatable?


“To keep our faces toward change, and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate, is strength undefeatable.”

~ Helen Keller

You have what it takes.

Now use it!

I believe in you!

Shine On!


May You…


“May today there be peace within.

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content knowing you are a child of God.

Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

It is there for each and every one of us.” ― Teresa of Avila

Saint Teresa of Ávila
*Painted by Peter Paul Rubens

All is Well.


“All is well. You did not come here to fix a broken world. The world is not broken. You came here to live a wonderful life. And if you can learn to relax a little and let it all in, you will begin to see the universe present you with all that you have asked for.” – Abraham

I don’t know about you, but after reading this quote I felt hugged.  Truly loved, hugged and happy.  For me, the above quote left me smiling and gave me such peaceful happiness that I just knew I had to share it with you today.  Imagine if we all took this quote to heart and lived by it.  Whew, wouldn’t the weight of all your worries vanish instantly?  Wouldn’t your relationships with others and with yourself improve dramatically?  Wouldn’t you wear a smile on your face more often?

So what’s stopping you now that you’ve read it?  Do you dare believe it?  Don’t let the naysayers in your head and surroundings take away your peace!  Enjoy it!

Relax.  All is well.

Shine On!

How to Freshen Your Hopes


I want to do the right thing, but often, I don’t know just what the right thing is.  Every day I know I have come short of what I would like to have done.  Yet as the years pass and I see the very world itself with its oceans and mountains and plains as something unfinished, a peculiar little satisfaction hunts out the corners of my heart.  Sunsets and evening shadows find me regretful at tasks undone, but sleep and the dawn and the air of the morning touch me with freshening hopes. ~ Carl Sandburg

Do you feel this way at times?  Do you gently lay your head upon your pillow at night, unable to sleep while you recount the day’s events, perhaps even berating yourself for tasks undone, words unsaid (or said) and the feeling of an unfinished day?  Then take a lesson from Carl Sandburg and allow the day to be done, gone the sun…and allow the dawn to freshen your hopes for a new day!

Dawn brings enthusiasm, optimism, inspiration!  Awaken with the joy of a new day where miracles can and do happen!  Where you can create what you want on the clean canvas of a new day!  May you find joy today and every day!  This is your day to…

Shine On!
