  • I noticed on Facebook that some of you mentioned meals you had fixed for your husbands and fathers for Father’s Day.  In fact, I see a lot more comments regarding what you have fixed for dinner, a dessert you made, brunches and so on. 

    I have heard, in the past, “Oh I don’t cook or I don’t like to cook,” but with the economy the way it is now, it has forced many of us to go back to cooking.  I am so impressed with everyone!

    Cooking can be fun, and it is another good way to express yourself.

  • We all want to be happy, but many people don’t realize how this affects our spending. We all have things that we need or want to buy that we think will make us happy, and those things often do bring us some pleasure. But maybe we’re not doing ourselves as much of a favor as we think.

    Have you ever bought something because a TV commercial said you need it to be happy? Are you buying something because you are trying to keep up with others? How long will this pleasure really last? How long will something we buy make us happy?

  • I spent several hours last week preparing my Bible study lessons on the Book of Genesis. It is amazing to compare the story of creation to life as it is today.

    The study on creation helped me, more and more, to see life of God in every one and in every thing. I see the vibration of God’s life everywhere.

    These days, all of us enjoy the sunrise and sunset.
