I enjoy spending time with my family and the grand-babies, laughing, talking and enjoying my time with them. Also, reading, writing, painting, and enjoying a good cup of coffee.  



"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil to give you a future and hope." Jeremiah 29:11

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and He will guide and direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6



“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
