Praise Be


Blessings abound in each moment for those who are awake.

(Listen to my song “Sing a New Song” by clicking HERE)


Psalm 98:1

Sing a new song to the Lord, who has done marvelous deeds.


The next time that you are tempted to complain…look at the many blessings all around you.

What about each precious breath you take?

This life in human form has an expiration date. We have no idea when the time will be up.

I remember vividly a brush with tragedy several years ago.

I suddenly lost control of my car on ice, narrowly missed a head-on collision, spun around, slid off the road and overturned. It all happened in just a few seconds…but it seemed like an eternity.

Somehow…I did not sustain as much as a scratch or a bruise.

It seems it takes such encounters with mortality to wake up to how awesome and yet fragile life is!

Each moment is a gift.

But how often am I spending those moments lamenting the past or fretting over the future?

Wake up!

Engage with the now…the only time to engage with the Divine Presence.

This Holy Mystery wants to shower you with Love.

You are part of this magnificent unfolding creation.

You have been given life with the promise of eternal life.

How great is the God of all!
