We each can be an ointment for wounds

Sometimes I wish I knew exactly what to say that someone needed to hear. Each week I pray for that. If only one person might find something I’ve shared useful to their lives and relevant to their experiences, then I am most grateful.

When opportunity knocks, look through peephole first

We have all heard that when opportunity knocks, we have to be ready to seize the moment. Well, assuming that the opportunity is a lawful and logical one, this might be true. However, to be ready does not mean that we should not consider carefully the terms, conditions, and long-term implications that a given opportunity might carry with it.

Go ahead and take a break

I think that sometimes in life, it is difficult for some of us to be OK with taking a break. We don't want to feel as though we are being lazy, we concern ourselves with others' expectations of us, and many times we are just plain too hard on ourselves.
