The Sabbath

Sunday was a good day. It might have seemed like any other Sunday but it wasn’t. It was special because for the first time in a long time my family and I relaxed. We relaxed because we truly took the Sabbath for what it means: a time to rest and a time to connect; with God andContinue reading “The Sabbath”

An honest post on a busy life

I often describe life in one word: busy. For some reason it has become an expected state of affairs for the home and the office. Do you ever feel this way? I know I do and when I ask others I simply hear: “That is the way life is.” But could there be a betterContinue reading “An honest post on a busy life”

One of my favorite topics of conversation is work. I’ve heard it said that men, in particular, quickly gravitate towards talking about their job and role in the marketplace.

Turkey leftovers – remaining thankful

It’s December already and another Thanksgiving has come and gone. And as I think of Thanksgiving, again, I’m reminded of all the reasons I have to be thankful. The beauty of Thanksgiving is in its pure and simple meaning: Giving thanks. I love the opportunity to spend time with family and focus on all theContinue reading “Turkey leftovers – remaining thankful”
