In the years of my borderline atheism I did not believe in the existence of your “spiritual cup” I didn’t really believe there was anyone there to fill that cup up with anything so how could there even be a cup? It’s been over six years since the night I found out there was someone there and that there certainly was such a thing as a spiritual cup. It absolutely DOES exist. Continue reading
I’ve come to believe that there are no coincidences in life. People are brought into our lives for a specific reason. It’s all preordained in my honest opinion. When I was given the idea of The Micah Principle I was told that it means “Though I fall I will rise again”, meaning simply that we all fall down in life but that we MUST get back up. I was told that the purpose of it was to gather stories from people who have done just that and to publish them here. The end result of it would be to inspire others and give them hope….to help them understand that if someone else overcame an obstacle or tragedy in their life that they can, too.
Zach’s story is the first one to be shared after my story. I met Zach after seeing a video of him on the Facebook page for a local church Continue reading
Back in the early 1970’s there was a song written and recorded by Johnny Nash called “I Can See Clearly Now”. It’s a catchy little song with happy lyrics. I’d sing along with it every time it came on the radio. Even though I knew every word by heart I never really listened to the song. I just sang the words on auto-pilot. Continue reading
There’s a quote by Joseph Campbell that says “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.” I love this quote because it’s so spot on the truth about what fear is. Fear literally keeps us from all the good things in our life if we allow it. We fear failure. We fear rejection. We fear being told no. We fear being shunned, ridiculed or laughed at. We even fear fear itself. Fear can keep us in a stranglehold if we let it. Continue reading
Patience. That word was the bane of my existence for many, many years. Why? Because I had NONE. I was so far in the negative for patience it wasn’t even funny. I used to say that when they were handing out patience I didn’t even get in that line. I stood in other lines repeatedly, like the impatience line and the negative line (I kept getting back in line for this one–I have no idea why). I felt like I stood in all the wrong lines.

Have you ever met someone and knew right away that you were going to be good friends? I’ve had that happen only a few times in my life. When we bought our first house years ago the first neighbor to ring the doorbell and welcome us was one of those people. We’re still good friends today and I just love and adore everything about her. She has brought so much good to my life and I am so thankful and grateful for her. She’s the one who helped me the most on my spiritual journey, even though she didn’t know it till much later.
