WELCOME

Make yourself comfortable and take a look around the site. There is a lot to see but be forewarned, if you look closely, I’m sure you will find a spelling error or two, or something out of place. It’s taken me awhile but I am learning to be ok with it. Living centered isn’t about perfection, it’s about focusing on what matters.

So grab your coffee (or tea if that's your jam). Take a deep breath and  
find a comfortable spot. 
One where you can be centered for a moment.

Centered Seconds

Lamenting for Thanksgiving

Today, I want to scream into a pillow and cry. I want to shake my fist at the sky and ask God, "what are You doing, already? When will You end this?"

Get Into It

The world tells us to "do what's best for you" while simultaneously pushing the "we are all in this together, so make sure you put others first." That seems contradictory. And yet, scripture tells us to love each other and care for one another, sometimes at the expense of our own comfort.

Crossing Over

I believe we are amid a descent in our society. Division at every corner, literal and proverbial. Each conversation, post, or interaction might be the step that sends us tumbling down like Jack and Jill.
