I have decided to refrain from buying any clothes for myself for one year.  I shared this thought with a coworker and she is intrigued and inspired. Another small step for me.  I wonder how much…Continue

United Nations Declaration of Human Rights

Posted on 2nd mo. 19, 2010 at 8:31pm 0 Comments

Its official name is the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and it's elegant and comprehensive.

Today I am thinking hard about the plight of (usually) undocumented farm workers, particularly those in the dairy industry and most particularly lthe workers who were fired from the Ruby Ridge dairy, just north of Pasco, Washington, for signing up for a union vote. The Bingens, who own…

How to help the budget

Posted on 2nd mo. 17, 2010 at 10:19pm 0 Comments

Gave some thought yesterday about how I personally benefit from the federal government -- besides the social security payments.

Oh yes, the US Postal Service. I benefit most directly from that federal…

This phrase came to me in the Silent Weekend, as I waited for God to send me some ephananies. Then I felt bad for expecting anything. Rather, I hoped for the wisps of wisdom. And God send some to me. I am still humbled by the gifts I received.

Black History Month inspired my thoughts in new ways that I am going to pursue a while before writing about.

I've been on a whirlwind treadmill lately, scampering quite quickly. I hope I can slow down this weekend and work…

Dividends from Silent Weekend

Posted on 2nd mo. 2, 2010 at 4:39pm 0 Comments

I attended the Pacific Northwest Meeting's silent weekend and the goodness is still with me. Here are some of my dividends:



Am I strong? When the light of God shines, YES. It pleases me that some people think me strong.



Thou Art With Me -- that's the answer I got when seeking God pretty blatantly (though silently).



The silent weekend I attended one year ago put me on a better path, and I have followed through fairly well since then. And I need to keep it… Continue

My daughter left today and it feels like there's a hole in my life, like a wall is missing from my home. It may be a difficult day.
