True Wealth Is Intangible

December 5, 2014

In the background as I sip my coffee, I hear the morning news report that most people want gift cards for Christmas and I find myself wanting more than that. I want love. When I am given that, I have everything. Poets, scribes so often paint reality with their words. – From Thoughts Over Morning Coffee Martha L Shaw

The Secret To Being Rich!

The difference between rich and poor is unrelated to any bank account or financial statement. It lies deep within each one of us.- from Thoughts Over Morning Coffee by Martha L Shaw


Glamous Life – Tragic Death – Time To Remove Our Masks

February 3, 2014
We admire others, covet what we perceive them to have as though it was taken from us, we fool ourselves into thinking others have “it” easy and we do not . . . we are blind to the reality that is THEY view us the same way. Sometimes all that talent, money, bright lights, and “glamour” becomes a corpse on the floor with the needle still in the arm and 50 bags of heroin nearby waiting to mask reality.
RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman and so many others who’ve lost the battle the same way.  Lord save us from ourselves and in our weakness fill us with your strength.

Living Together As One

This sure does sound like ideal life as one in the body of Christ:

Your pain is my pain, My wealth is your wealth, Your salvation is my salvation.

I am researching a writing project and just used a search engine to pull up sites connected to the keywords “reflect Jesus.”  As those of us who use search engines know, the first few hits are generally the ones that these services intend to be the most appropriate for our needs. 

One of the first hits related to “reflect Jesus” was an ad for a new outfit of clothes.  I didn’t go to that site. 

Reflect Jesus . . . excuse me?   It’s not about fashion.
