Essential Oils for Nerve Pain

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What does an adorable Pug named Weezy have to do with Essential Oils for Nerve Pain? Well…it’s like this. As I stepped towards the door to set the alarm one Sunday morning, completely dressed and ready for church, I slipped in a puddle of pee. I landed in that puddle but not before my left knee hit the sharp corner of the rung at the bottom of one of my kitchen chairs. CHARLEY HORSE TIMES 100! This happened in the final sweet months of Weezy’s life when he had simply lost control of his bladder, and I still laugh at the thought of being all dressed up and sitting in pee. I now refer to my left knee as my Weezy knee, and it still talks to me now and again almost five years later.

Califlower Mashed Potato Cakes

Mashed Cauliflower Cakes

This delightful recipe is courtesy of Healthy Holistic Living. Posted by Abbey Ryan on January 28, 2019. “Keep in mind that these cauliflower cakes are best when eaten right away rather than left to get cold and require reheating. By reheating these cakes, you can cause them to lose their structure, and it also affects the texture. They are delicious when eaten warm, however, and are incredibly versatile, making them a wonderful dish to add to any meal. The fact that they’re low on carbs (unlike potato cakes!) and have many beneficial antioxidants are just added bonuses.”

What Does It Mean To Be Fully Alive

Life Is Too Short.PNG

We talk about being fully alive, but what exactly does that mean? I ardently believe that keeping a healthy balance of physical, mental and spiritual activity in our lives will bring meaning and fullness to all our experiences. Being conscious and aware of ourselves, God, and others, keeps us in the here and now where full life is attainable. It is with the union of our strengths and weaknesses, our joys and sufferings, that hope, peace and joy for each moment becomes a possible reality. It is slowing down long enough to smell the roses, listen to the sounds of children playing, and looking up at the sky above. Continue reading

Why Love Good

Jimmy (11)

I’ll never forget my first back-stage experience with a Grammy-award winning artist. I was 18-years-old as I waited patiently in line at the Lakewood Amphitheater in my hometown of Atlanta. I hardly noticed the unbearable humidity that early summer day as most of my sweat dripped from nervous energy and anticipation. Continue reading

Obtaining A Peaceful, Simple Life

grow in virtueAlan Scott writes about living a simple, yet meaningful life, filled with virtue, faith, and far less complexity. All held together by a love for God.

For over 10 years now, I’ve been learning and struggling to live a more peaceful, simple life. Here is my goal:

I want a life uncluttered by most of the unnecessary things that fill many people’s lives – with the hopes of filling my life with what really matters. A life that doesn’t contain constant busy-ness and rushing about, but instead is filled with intention, contemplation, creation and a connection with people I love, with time for wholesome activity.

And most importantly, a life that has God at its center. Saying this, of course, I have failed many times. Continue reading
