We see and hear so many things
That violate and trouble our souls;
It’s time for us to step away
For refreshment that heals all our woes.
Stop to consider the beauty
That surrounds and greets us each day:
Smiling faces, music and love;
Sights and sounds to cheer in every way.
Plains and mountains, deserts and hills;
Fragrances from blossoms so sweet;
Sunshine or rain, clouds and blue sky;
Cold winters, spring warm and summer heat.
Things that injure seem plentiful;
Out numbering all that is right
But if we pay close attention,
We’ll find beautiful things that delight.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color.
I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher.
My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog.
Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner.
I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God.
May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
