 Forgiveness Quotes

I’m still meditating on and following the path of forgiving –  forgiving both  others and myself for transgressions that are still causing pain, grief, anger, or denial.  Once begun, it is a long, steady, and sometimes stumbling journey. Forgiving and releasing one incident often has the unexpected result of  uncovering a new insight or a […]

 Forgiving May Change Your Life

Reading these books made me consider more on the issue of forgiving. Holding a grudge, dreaming of revenge, feeling long-term anger … all these emotions can poison your inner self and slowly deteriorate the quality of your life.

 After the Storm

I called my oldest son, Sam, as I was going down the steps, just to be sure he knew about the tornado warning. He did. “We were in Walmart and they made us get in the middle of the store, ” his girlfriend told me.

 This Moment, Soon Lost

post by Patti Tokar Nature offers beauty at unexpected moments: A magenta drenched sunset. Golden light dazzling in sharp patterns across the field. Frost breathed in white layers over the lawn. A single pink rose blossoming amidst the fall leaves. A baby concentrating hard on pulling herself to a full stand. I’ve learned that these […]

 Listening to God

                post by Patti Tokar When was the last time you listened to God?  No, not prayed in earnest, but listened in earnest?  Or at least waited in peaceful expectation to see if there were any answers or insights forthcoming?  Clarity and direction can come from listening and waiting. […]
