I am a creative design junkie, neophyte web-head, optimist extraordinaire, sustainable gardening aficionado, gourmet comfort-food cook, undiscovered comic voice actor, pet whisperer, snail-mail enthusiast, collector of antique poetry, and proud proponent of the kindness of strangers. Whew. But wait! There’s more! I am a hopeful romantic and I adore my beloved husband. I am incredibly proud of my two grown sons.
Definition of the word: Profession
While the common definition of the word ‘profession’ is: A paid occupation, career, or the association of qualified persons in a field (as in ‘members of the teaching profession’), it has another meaning that I am referring to in the name of my blog: The act of professing. Making a declaration. Synonyms include: statement, vow, testimony, claim, assertion, and acknowledgment.
Here is a place where I shall be making my professions for peace, my declarations about people living together in harmonious acceptance. Here is a place for celebrating our differences while acknowledging our sameness. Humanity is like a spectacular tapestry of colors and creativity. We are all cut from the same cloth, and we all smile in the same language.
I believe that peacefulness begins within. Most of the writings and quotes here are faith-based. I am especially connected with seeing God everywhere in nature and I cherish the wisdom of Native American (First Nations) wisdom. I am Christian but I also study the teachings of Buddhism, Taoism, Judaism, Hinduism and more. I am a spiritual philosopher. I celebrate the precious common thread woven through all the world’s great religions that encourages us to Love. My spiritual journey and goal of each day is to remember how loved I am and to share that love outwardly.
It is my intention to offer thought-provoking ideas that foster joy, hope, and inspiration.
