In the Spirit of Victory

It was brought to my attention yesterday that intention is needed moreso in my life.


What do I intend to bring about?

What do I intend to bring into my world?

Do I wish beauty, peace and happiness?  Then I must intend it to be so!

How do I feel when I intend?  Where does this intention come from?

Let us understand the word intention as defined in Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary:

Definition of intention*

1:a determination to act in a certain way :resolve
3a :what one intends to do or bring about
b :the object for which a prayer, mass, or pious act is offered
4:a process or manner of healing of incised wounds
5:concept; especially :a concept considered as the product of attention directed to an object of knowledge
intentions plural :purpose with respect to marriage

Derivation of the word Intention: Middle English: from Old French entent, entente, based on Latin intendere (see intend). The adjective is from Latin intentus, past participle of intendere .

So it is a determination, a resolve to bring about certain conditions in my life that is needed.

Lesson re-learned: I must exercise my mind/heart to bring forth that which I desire just like I must exercise my core physical muscles in my solar plexus to hold me upright.  And not just flexing my ‘muscles’ for 2 minutes!

This core foundation must be stable and secure.  And this foundation is inspired by that Force, that Source, that Principle, that Love within me which is propelling an impulse for intention.  This impulse then is intention’s origination.  I AM (that Source or Spirit within me) bringing forth into my world that which I desire.  And that which I desire for myself and others are only good effects; effects which can be easily experienced by others including myself.

It is then in the Spirit of Victory I AM come to do thy will…to help, to beautify, to call forth the solutions to life that are in abundance everywhere I AM.

I cleaned out the lint trap today…


A clean lint trap

Yup!  Today was the day I decided to look what’s down the bathroom sink drain.  Oh My!  Was I ever in for a surprise!!  There was grime and grease besides lots of “my” hair!  Black stuff, etc, etc., you get the picture!

I’ve been doing lots of cleaning since it’s Spring time now.  Thought it would open up some of the slow moving flows around here while applying some of my knowledge about flows in general.  A line from here to there needs something to travel on once you put attention and intention onto the line.  With barriers and blockages in the way on the line, then it makes it near impossible to have any particle go from A to B.

Kinda makes me realize how important it is with anything in life really.  If my mind is distracted by the so-called news or gossip or the latest celeb doings then I have poured my attention into something that isn’t uplifting, at least for me it isn’t uplifting.  Kinda like unwanted lint.  Why turn on the TV in the first place or listen to other people’s lint if it doesn’t do me any good?  I can do something about it…I can turn it off and do something productive.

So after cleaning the lint trap out, my bicycle was dusted off, tires filled with air & taken out of the garage.  I had some outside time…enjoying the Spring like weather here in Michigan and my mind was free of lint once again.

What have you cleaned out today?  Tell me your story!

How to extend the attention span of your children.

Just some good solid advice! Please share!

Dayne Sislen Children's Book Illustration

Kids today are bombarded with video games as well as fast action cartoons and movies. Picture book publishers are requesting shorter and shorter picture books for young children. No wonder our children have problems keeping their minds focused on one thing for very long.

What can you do to help your kids have a longer attention span? My advice is not some new technical invention or app for your phone or tablet, but something easy and inexpensive that you can do in your own home.


You can extend your children’s attention span by reading to them.

What better way to show them you love them and help them at the same time. Kids love getting attention from their parents and grandparents. This one-on-one time without any distractions from phones or TV is important. Children can later illustrate the stories you read together so you have a visual reminder of the time you have…

We are Instruments

We each have a part to play.

Mary Rensberry

We are instruments in the grand symphony of life. That’s why I enjoy watching and listening to orchestras play.  I am usually singing or tapping my hands or feet along or swinging my arms to the rhythm of the music.  My favorite is the playing of classical music, of course, and sung by well known tenor, Andrea Bochelli is a delight to hear.

To give you a little bit of background, take a look here about instrumentation in orchestras:

There’s many different types of instruments and families or groups of instruments, like the string section, or the brass or woodwind section. They each have a part or piece to play in the grand scheme of things. Just like you and me. There is life (which is the musical composition) and how to be in harmony with others in your family and with the other groups (people, plants, animals, earth…

The Real Message

The real message is that we are but living, breathing spirits with unlimited potential having a body.

Fully human yet divine.

the breath

how can there be anything but the breath

A breath is gasped or slowly drawn like a baby or ancient one

only to be released into the ethers

again in defeat or victory

breathing… in and out… in and out…regularly and steady, is life itself

my breath on occasion is held captive waiting to be released…but why, I wonder, does the cadence change

perhaps it is my outlook on life or the very life within me that seeks expression

breathing is life itself, the pneuma.

Little things

it’s in the little things

that life and love brings

to us each day waking.

So touch your toes

and put on your clothes.

It’s in the little things

that life and love brings

to us each day waking.

Willingness to embrace

the newness of God’s grace.

It’s in the little things

that life and love brings

to us each day waking.

Smiles you and I share

to bear autumn winds


Fall leaves.
