    Aroma Yoga
    Aroma Yoga Aroma Yoga combines the therapeutic elements of aromatherapy with the therapeutic elements of the practice of yoga.  With this union, is the benefit of a two-in-one manifestation of healing and restoration. Nowadays it seems like every day a new "kind" of yoga is invented. There's horse yoga, beer yoga, cold yoga and the list goes on. I usually don't take the time to explore the benefits of them but when I heard the term "aroma yoga," I was immediately curious and drawn in. I have
  2. The Hope Of Love

    The Hope Of Love
    The Word of God is full of love stories. If not a love letter to all believers, it is an amalgamation of extreme emotions, love, hate, despair, envy. There’s so much raw and human emotion expressed through the lives of its patriarchs. Interpretations of the book of Genesis vary regarding the second marriage of Abraham, a redeeming romance after the death of his first, more notable wife Sarai. The question as to whether Abraham’s second wife, Katera was really Hagar, Sarai’s hand maid, has

    Yin, Yang and the Origin of Sin
    Yin, Yang and Origin of Sin “I saw Satan fallen as lightning from heaven” (Luke 10:18) and he landed in the dark pool called ‘yin’ continually countering the light called ‘yang.’ The Taoist prescribes a balance in the duality of light and darkness and calls it nirvana. For the Coptic Yogi, nirvana is all yang, all that is light, and love encompassed in the pillars of heaven. Both perspectives recognize that opposite forces exit and correlate. In a sense they both would agree that there is

    A Broken Spirit Makes You Sick
    A cheerful heart does good like medicine, but a broken spirit makes one sick.  Proverbs 17:22(TLB) Ever said, “You make me sick!” to someone? Ever wondered about the truth behind the expression? We make ourselves sick by allowing others to make us sick. I know plenty of times, I’ve been upset about something and low and behold not too much longer, I have an upset stomach, or a headache. How about when you’re under a lot of stress and your skin starts to breakout? Looking back, I’m sure we

    Isolation vs. Correlation
    Non-Attachment Isolation vs. Correlation  When the child grew older, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. She named him Moses,[b] saying, “I drew him out of the water. Exodus 2:10 Moses was raised in the opulence of a royal court of great antiquity. Egypt, much like today, was a status conscious society in which status determined a person’s quality of life. When Moses became part of the royal family; he inherited a lifestyle of Egyptian opulence. This is an example of

    May 17 Proverb 17
    Proverbs 17  1 Better a dry crust with peace and quiet     than a house full of feasting, with strife. 2 A prudent servant will rule over a disgraceful son     and will share the inheritance as one of the family. 3 The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold,     but the Lord tests the heart. 4 A wicked person listens to deceitful lips;     a liar pays attention to a destructive tongue. 5 Whoever mocks the poor shows contempt for their Maker;     whoever gloats over disaster will not go

    Kadesh-Sanctification
    Sanctification Derived from Kada(e)sh- a Hebrew term meaning to set apart through divine intervention, it is the act of purification yielding the power of glorification. Marvin Gaye recorded a song, “Sanctified Lady,” singing lines of vulgar language, a man's begging to a catchy and rhythmic tune. The lyrics talk about how Marvin wants a sanctified lady.  Ironically, the song, is what immediately comes to mind when hearing the word Sanctification, more appropriately defined as the removal

    New Beginnings
    New Beginnings Job 42:12(a) So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning.  The license of a close friend reads "I2Late." On the contrary, my objective is to describe and share the beauty of new beginnings. Losing hurts. The story of Job illustrates the suffering of losing wealth, the lives of loved ones or family members, even the health and well being of a person's body. Job lost everything. However, he is promised that his best was yet to come.  Thoughts creep in a

    May 14 Proverb 14
    Proverbs 14   1 The wise woman builds her house,     but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down. 2 Whoever fears the Lord walks uprightly,     but those who despise him are devious in their ways. 3 A fool’s mouth lashes out with pride,     but the lips of the wise protect them. 4 Where there are no oxen, the manger is empty,     but from the strength of an ox come abundant harvests. 5 An honest witness does not deceive,     but a false witness pours out lies. 6 The mocker seeks
