Choosing Love Today

Plunging into the Heart of Love By: Susan Deborah Schiller I’m deep below the surface again, down under the threatening waves of anger, hurt, depression, and the seemingly endless stream of bad news. But it’s not my battle this time around.  I’m here with a sister plunging below the surface to find the heart of love. I know she’s going […]

Behind the Veil By: White Dove I wake up today between worlds. I'm not the survivor I used to be, because I don't see victory in fighting anymore. Not on the material plane.

Renewal by Design By: White Dove Renewal, for me, happens when I enter the unknown.  For me, it’s “renewal by design” as I intentionally trade the safe route for the unknown.  One early spring-like day, I was on my first “dot-dot-dot” road, which means sometimes there’s a path and sometimes not. The map uses dots to warn you the road will be […]

Seeing all of Life as Sacred By: White Dove To Listen to this Story My favorite place in the world is a long, winding dirt road running alongside the Vermillion River in Northwestern Montana.

Finding Beauty in the Dark Places  By: White Dove I remember the day my husband abandoned me alongside the road in a desert, and it felt like a grenade had exploded in my abdomen.

In the Event of Sudden Disaster, Grin By: White Dove Bone-shaking tremors of impending disaster erupt from the deepest seat of my soul – the place where my controlling beliefs create my circumstances – threatening to throw me into the tumultuous sea.

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, ‘WOW WHAT A RIDE!’” ~ Hunter S Thompson If you are familiar with my […]

A prayer meditation by White Dove I want to see beyond despair to what is accessible only by faith… In the stillness of pre-dawn moonlight an airplane flies directly overhead in Northwestern Montana. The skies have been filled with aircraft this week spraying forest fires which have grown beyond human control to manage. Home owners race to […]

Praying into the Abyss of Despair By: Dr. Stephen R. Crosby Sometimes our circumstances make us feel like we are standing on the edge of a dark and bottomless abyss of hopelessness. We pray, do all the things we know to do, have been told to do, trained to do (and then some), and nothing […]

Finding the Priceless Pearl By: White Dove Underneath the pain and grief lies your greatest blessing. A pearl of great price is formed layer upon layer.
