• Love is a noun and a verb

    Love is a noun and a verb. Love is not just an emotion felt, but also an action demonstrated.

    This description of "love" written by a young Jewish scholar, articulates the multi-factedness of love as a noun and a verb.

    Love endures with patience and serenity, love is kind and thoughtful, and is not jealous or envious; love does not brag and is not proud or arrogant.

    It is not rude; it is not self-seeking, it is not provoked [nor overly sensitive and easily angered]; it does not take into account a wrong endured. 

    It does not rejoice at injustice, but rejoices with the truth [when right and truth prevail]. 

    Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening].

    Love never fails [it never fades nor ends].

    And now there remain: faith [abiding trust in God and His promises], hope [confident expectation of eternal salvation], love [unselfish love for others growing out of God’s love for me], these three [the choicest graces]; but the greatest of these is love.



    ...Love, LOve, LOVe, LOVE...

  • New Year’s Day 2022

    As I reflect on 2021, one of the greatest lessons I learned was about seasons and timing. Ecclesiastes says, "To every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose." 

    The fact that New Year’s Day is celebrated in winter is no coincidence. It may seem ironic to celebrate something new, while everything appears to be dormant. But this is the glory of seasons. Each season is timed and essential for what is to come. When it is your season and timing of purpose, you flourish!

    Here's to YOU flourishing in your appointed time and season!! May God bless you and your family!!🙏🏼 Happy New Year!! 🎊

  • “I’ve been thinking…”

    The present is the fruit of the past, and the seed of the future.


    This statement recognizes that the present is birthed from the past. And while you cannot change the past, you can look at the present seeds you have and decide what you want to plant for the future you desire.

    Your future lies within your faith, your hope, and your willingness to act upon what you believe.

    The choice is up to you.

  • The Resilient Pivot

    As I have travelled, I’ve stood in awe of the spirit and soul of humanity. Despite fear, uncertainty, disappointment, war, and disaster, humanity continues to rise, to re-build, re-construct, re-new and re-bound, with resolve to press forward, while holding onto hope.

    No matter what comes, born of your action, or that of another, you are capable of a resilient pivot.

    Lift up your countenance…you will rise.
