Hello and welcome! My name is Gina and this is my inspirational blog. I celebrate seeing God everywhere in nature and I cherish Native American wisdom. I am Christian and along with First Nations’ teachings I also study Buddhism, Taoism, Judaism, Hinduism and more. I’m a spiritual philosopher celebrating that precious thread woven through all the world’s religions that encourages us to Love. Humanity is like a spectacular tapestry of colours and creativity. We are all cut from the same cloth, and we all smile in the same language.
In deepening my experience of life I’ve noticed that what may appear to be a simple question can also be the most difficult to answer. Who Am I?
What do I love? How may I serve? These are questions I mull over, contemplate, and grow with. As I deeply examine what I most love, what makes my heart sing, the other answers become clear. In moving towards what makes my heart shine with happiness, I uncover who I really am and how I may be of service.
Clarity regarding why I blog, what I want to write about, and why I have two blogs has been shining through me and I am feeling renewed! Summarizing my two blogs in one sentence:
Professions for PEACE is like my ministry and P.E.A.C.E. is my daily life.
Professions for PEACE is where I share my most enlightened observations and learning experiences. I’m using the definition of the word professions as in declarations, testimonies and assertions. These professions are my celebrations of all that inspires me and helps us move towards peace. The posts here are akin to my Sunday sermons, so to speak, no matter what day of the week they arrive. This is a faith-based place where I share what sparks my spirit, lifts my heart, and speaks to me of God. Between my longer writings you’ll find posts with inspirational quotes, posters, and poetry.
People Excited About Co~Existence is about the rest of the week as I seek the miraculous in the mundane. The name is long but I hope you’ll find each visit worth it: peopleexcitedaboutcoexistence.com without spaces or dashes. Co-existence begins within, in the home and in the heart. I bring peace with me on all my tasks and travels, and in this site I aim to share how I do it. There’s posts on easy organizing, simple recipes, gardening tips, green shopping, living with pets, and other familial topics. It is in the minutiae of daily life we find the shining gem of inner peace. Let’s create a calmer, sweeter existence. We help bring peace to the world through joyful lives and peaceful hearts.
Pointing out the positive sets my heart singing. Moments that make us feel happy deserve to be noticed. Let’s pause, observe, and feel grateful for whatever is happening right in the moment when our hearts feel bright. Whether it’s making people laugh or dogs’ tails wag. Serving an incredible meal, improving relationships, fixing a vehicle, running a marathon, being in our gardens, or writing an inspirational article. Whatever it is that makes our hearts happy and harms no one, let’s do more of that.
I share about the things that make my heart sing. May you burst into song along with me.
