So where does the saying, “money is the root of all evil” come from? It is quoted from the Bible:
For the love of money is the root of all evil:…1 Timothy 6:10 (KJV)
Granted, the Bible states that it is the “love” of money that is the root of all evil, but how can you love paper and metal? Because that’s all money is. So we can assume the Bible may be speaking of what we get in exchange for said money.
Happiness is abundant. It’s like the Force in Star Wars: an energy field created by all living things, it surrounds us, penetrates us and binds the galaxy (Universe) together… and yet so many find it elusive and fleeting. Why?
I love Gabby Bernstein! Her book, The Universe Has Your Back, is one of my go-to comfort reads! (If you’ve never read her books, you’re missing out!
In her videos, she’s easy to listen to and speaks beautiful wisdom in a way I can relate; she’s concise yet not boring and her friendly wit will make you smile.
In this shortvideo (under 19 minutes) she shares her heart about recent events and how our perceptions on activism can play a major role in how we’re heard and how our intentions may be viewed by others. She calls on us to embrace what she refers to as spiritually aligned action. It’s very timely but good for any occasion when you have something on your heart and you feel you need to speak out about it. Please visit her blog post, How To Take Action From A Place Of Power, to watch the video and share if your heart so intends.
An Analogy About the 2017 U.S. Presidential Inauguration
So you’re on a plane. Not just any plane – an Airbus A380 – the largest, richest and most amazing plane in the world. But, the plane is crashing and the pilot is gone. Someone needs to crash land the biggest, most respected plane in the world… and you’re on it!
Any kitchen or dining area can be your own personal coffee shop. Just add comfy chairs, pillows, lots of tabletop space and some coffee-inspired artwork! (Oh, and don’t forget the coffee – lots and lots of freshly brewed coffee!) Coffee art is huge right now: coffee posters, coffee-inspired chalk prints, etc. You can transform any space into a super cozy coffee shop right in your own home! Enjoy!
I’m in the market for a new reading chair! I love the big, oversized stuffed chairs or chair-and-a-half with comfortable upholstery big enough to curl up in. Right now I’m using my husband’s big leather chair-and-a-half and although it is comfortable, I prefer a soft chenille or tweed fabric.
Just to qualify everything I’m about to say, here’s something you need to know: I’m a woman; I have sisters and daughters so I really like women. I have approximately 450 books on my Kindle Paperwhite and at least 90% of them are M/M fiction and most of those are written BY WOMEN! So I like women and I respect and like to read books written by women! Now, with that said…
Peace and quiet. Finally, after yesterday’s day of celebration that started at three o’clock in the afternoon – fireworks blasting, zipping and booming – lasting well past midnight, Sunday morning brings blissful silence. Not even the leaves on the trees move this morning. I think they, like our wild animal friends in the woods out back, are resting from the noise and distraction we humans imposed on them.
Everything’s beautiful! Unaldulterated joy accompanied by sparklers, good food, sunshine… a day to celebrate and be grateful for the opportunity to enjoy and participate in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Always pursue happiness!
