I never knew we had spiritual email, but I just discovered what it’s like to open it.
Last week I was in New York with my husband, Jerome, joining him for his college class reunion and visiting his family. The week was fun and full, and we returned home Tuesday night well after midnight. The next morning, I was surprised to find I was awakened early, with such a strong pull to go for a run. I do a lot of yoga and dancing and walking, but I only run on occasion. This morning, the message came through loudly, GO RUN! Continue reading →
This is a 5 minute video by Ric Elias, a passenger on the United flight that crash landed in the Hudson River. He speaks about what he learned in those final seconds before impact. And how the crash has changed his life.
Sometimes truths have to be forced in our faces. Seems that’s the only way I really learn. Ric said he didn’t want to be right anymore, he wanted to be happy. That’s a life principle for me…
This is one of the richest videos I’ve ever seen about connecting with life, no matter what! It was sent to me by my guest blogger, Deirdre McGill, who sent it because she was moved to tears by it. It’s actually a commercial out of Taiwan, but it speaks the universal language of the heart.
I’ve become a basketball fan over the years, with my husband as a coach/mentor, and my son as a player/manager. My son is a student manager for the University of Arizona’s men basketball team. His roommate is Jordin Mayes, their freshman point guard who has really grown this year. Going into this season, the team wasn’t even ranked. And yet through many last minute victories and surprises, they came in FIRST PLACE in the PAC 10! As a result, they are part of March Madness. Last Sunday, the Arizona Wildcats played in Oklahoma against the University of Texas Longhorns. Both teams had the same season ranking, so it was bound to be a close game. But what I watched was beyond basketball — it was an event that spoke to me about life, magic and never giving up.
Derrick Williams, #23
The Wildcats were up by 11 at half time, thanks to Jordin, who had hit four 3-pointers to make it his season high! Jordin played with focus and power, a vital part of the team. Derrick Williams, our key player, wasn’t scoring well but he kept the Longhorns from scoring. Then in the 3rd quarter, Derrick found his gear with an awesome dunk, and he was fully in the game. However, J’Covan Brown from Texas single-handedly brought his team back into contention by repeatedly getting fouled and making all 12 free throws! Few players can do that.
Now it’s 2 minutes to go and we’re tied. Over the next minute we barely stayed on top, and when the clock hit 1 minute left, Texas took the lead as their fans went nuts! All of a sudden there were only 9 seconds left on the clock, Texas is up by 2 and they have the ball. At that moment, time stood still. Everyone was on their feet and you could feel the unanimous feeling that the game was over and Texas had won. Continue reading →
