  • Some inquiring minds want to know...and I reply

    I  cannot pretend that I have a huge fan club chomping at the bit to read, report, record, and otherwise recall every word that falls from my mind to my computer to print in Tidelines, but I do receive email messages from folks who are interested in how I got started doing this column.

  • Healing and curing take time, energy and a great deal of courage

    A few weeks ago, I wrote a column that focused on the difference between healing and curing. Hubby Dear gave his approval and stated readers would surely be affected positively.
    While I believe the column offered an accurate assessment, it is also likely I was whistling in my personal darkness so I would not be afraid.
    I did not want to be drawn into the fearful bleakness that might bring pain in its wake. I did not want to be dragged into the catacombs of medicine where call bells are pushed, promises are made and waiting for results is inevitable.

  • When a mountain is in your path, do not sit at its foot and cry

    Interestingly, I received a message containing the African proverb, “When a mountain is in your path, do not sit at its foot and cry. Get up and climb it.”
    Meant as encouragement, the statement came to me precisely at the moment when my personal mountain of pain and disability had me prostrate at its foot crying my heart out. Discouragement and despair marked my waking moments and disturbed what little sleep I could muster. All was not well, no matter the empowering words I had been given. On this day, I could not receive them.

  • Healing and curing are evidence of God’s mercy

  • Father’s Day is every day when we stop to remember our dads

    It’s that time of year again when dad relishes being the center of attention. Beyond the Hallmark commercializing, I often think of my own father, an immigrant from Italy who gained monetary success by way of hard work, determination, and an incredible sense of things possible.
