As I reflect back on this year, I am grateful to all who have positively touched my life. I had seven major accomplishments this year. They were from the simple: to exercise regularly and take care of my health to the more complex: write a book, and become a published author.
Thus, my goals this year were to be healthier, walk straighter, smile brighter, love deeper, dream bigger and to BELIEVE!
Happy New Year! I wish you all a healthy, happy, and prosperous 2011.
As this year's celebration of Hanukkah comes to a close, it is the perfect time to reflect on miracles. Hanukkah is the observance of the miracles that G-d can provide.
The Maccabees miracle was because they had oil was sufficient to light the Menorah only for one day. By G-d's miracle, it continued to burn for eight days, until new oil was made available. That miracle proved that G-d had again taken His people under His protection.
By having absolute faith in G-d I know that miracles do occur.
Do You Believe?
To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle; Every cubic inch of space is a miracle. ~Walt Whitman Leaves of Grass
Let us not forget all who have fought and won or lost their battle to AIDS. In memory of my brother and all of those who are no longer with us, I bow my head with loving thoughts to their brave battle against this insidious disease.
Today I ask you to say a prayer or meditative thought for those who courageously live with the virus.
