“How, Then, Shall We Live?” by Tabitha Lord Jorgensen

I want to introduce you to Tabitha Lord, who cordially accepted my invitation to write a guest post while I am away on vacation. Hi, I’m Tabitha.

Food ~ The Heart of My Family #BeWoW

Ronovan gave us the opportunity to talk about our families by asking, “What is family to you?” It seems that whenever I sit down to write, I inevitably turn to subjects that have to do with food.  (Maybe I should have created a food blog?)  I realize that I associate family with food, because that is how we showed our children how much we loved them and cared about them.  We always served great meals with large amounts of healthy fare.  Our []

That was a total of five children on a Technical Sargent’s pay in the Air Force. Billy was still a baby, not yet nine months old []

A Spread the LOVE Event

My dear friend, Erika Kind asked me to participate in the Spread the Love Event.  This is a challenge, but it appears to be filled with an outlet for our creativity.  The whole idea is to write 10, four-word sentences about love, share our favorite quote or poem about love, and then ask other bloggers to participate in the event.  Hopefully, all the “LOVE” expressed will reverberate throughout the blogosphere sending ripples of good feelings and joy everywhere! Here are my 10, []

I Choose Compassion

One of the highest teachings of the Buddha is that of compassion. What exactly is compassion?  John Makransky, PhD in his book entitled, “Compassion in Buddhist Psychology,” says compassion is a companion to empathy.  We as humans sense others pain, and we look for ways to alleviate this pain.  When we look at the world filled with compassion we are able to understand the causes of suffering and naturally we wish to create an atmosphere of healing.
