The Lotus Pond by Colin Campbell Cooper

Before being fully awake this morning, I heard the phrase “Goodness and Kindness” being repeated in my mind.  As this happens to me often, I quickly searched for these words in the Bible…there…in Psalm 23:6:

“Goodness and kindness will follow me all the days of my life, I shall dwell in the house of the Lord as long as I live.”

This verse is certainly comforting especially if one is going through a difficult trial.  Saint Augustine put it this way:

“If God seems slow in responding, it is because He is preparing a better gift, He will not deny us, He withholds what you are not yet ready for, pray always and do not lose heart.”

We begin the last week in July and summer is flying by quickly.  Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, know that your journey is a place of goodness and kindness specifically designed for you.


Summer Dance by Thomas Dewig

O how I remember those days when I loved to dance.  That tangible force to spark the notion that anything is possible if you just try.  I get that feeling each time I go walking and my  spirit of freedom soars.  Then I can claim my sense of well being and tackle the next project ahead of me and voila, my new transformation.

What is your tangible force that will spark a new transformation in you?
