Happiness is an Inside Job

There has been a lot of talk over the years about what makes people happy. Is it a massive lottery win? Is it a new house, a new car, a new relationship? Is it a new addition to the family? No doubt you can see the pattern here, all these things are external.

"Peace" versus the World's view of this special gift: How to use it wisely and not get caught!

"I come in Peace!" Someone might have said this or you may have heard it in a movie before. 

Peace? What is this gift of peace of which you or the bible speaks? 

Jesus says in John chapter 14-16 (which is called the Farewell Discourse) that the world may offer a form of peace but his Peace brings eternal life and reassurance. How?

Good Evening!

See them as valuable…mistakes. See them as some of the best teachers around. Let them show you their true value- as a way NOT to do something.

So what does that mean? It means then that there are other ways to go where you want to go or get what you want to get, and that last one was just not the  way- so…

frozen, the code will not work, nor will the counting with interruptions, all things moved about. there is a discount, on top the discount, so a discussion ensued on buttons.

now there is an understanding.  the season of it all fits, the picture is made the pieces are in place. left on the tray, photographed for all to see.

 

talked in numbers and rhythms. a train passed, gulls flew the heat haze. on return, no one spoke.

Day of our People

(For my son, Patrick Stupfel, and others...)



My thoughts on our family heritage: The "Great Potato Famine," is now widely recognized for what it really was: genocide. Potatos were a new food introduced from South America, and NOT native to our Ireland....our native food was plentiful, under armed guard, and EXPORTED from Ireland by the conquering British, while our Irish starved. Our recent ancestors who were able to flee our home country, fled in "coffin ships," where many died at… Continue

And the winner is -- I don't know

I’ve watched the Academy Awards since I was a little girl, and for the past few years the Golden Globes. I’d hear the actors and actresses in advance of the program say, “It’s just an honor to be nominated.”

Now I know the truth.

I’m currently a Finalist awaiting the results in three awards contests: May Sarton Women’s Book Awards, The Northern California Publishers & Authors Book Awards, and the Reader Views Annual Literary Awards for 2016-2017.

Each time I received…
