Out with the Old, In with the New

by Teresa Smith on January 5, 2015

It’s the beginning of a new year. Out with the old and in with the new. Don’t we all wish it could be that easy. Don’t you wish that with the each new year, new month or even each new day… you could fully let go of things that don’t serve you anymore and embrace [...]

I was driving the other day and noticed a piece of land that had been leveled off.  I was wondering what was going to be built on the site… a convenience store, apartments? Well, the sign has now gone up. Storage buildings. My brother was with me and I exclaimed… “All we need is another [...]


Truth Is…

It’s so hard for me to believe that Fall is here. Where did the year go? It seems like just yesterday I was slipping and sliding through the ice. Not only has the ice gone, but so has spring flowers and long hot summer days. I’ve started noticing the shift in the sun, leaves beginning [...]


Things Aren’t Always As They Seem

by Teresa Smith on August 11, 2014

This past week my cousin went on vacation. She had heard about a place in town to board pets. At the facility, there are different levels of service and different types of rooms for your pet. There were overhead cameras in the facility so while you were away, you could always take a peak at [...]

I’ve said it before. I break for butterflies. I hate to hit anything with my car, but when you’re traveling speeds of 40+ mph in a 3000 pound piece of metal, you’re bound to hit something  during your lifetime. I think it’s odd that I’ll be driving and I’ll see a possum that’s been hit, [...]


Open Your Hands

by Teresa Smith on July 21, 2014

Yesterday morning I was driving and had my mind on other things, but realized I was too warm in my car with the air conditioner going. My first thought was, oh no… hopefully something wasn’t wrong with my air conditioner in this heat! Several things went through my mind… all big ticket issues. I kept [...]


Believing Without Seeing

by Teresa Smith on July 14, 2014

I don’t know if you’re like me, but I have such a hard time when it comes to faith. Faith is defined as ‘Confidence or Trust in a Person, Thing or Idea. Belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence.’  The Bible says… Faith is the confidence that what we hope for [...]


When Your Soul Needs A Boost

by Teresa Smith on July 7, 2014

Several weeks ago I attended a presentation where Tony Robbins was one of the recorded speakers. He stated that people ask him all of the time if he ever got depressed or down because his job is to uplift others and help others create a more positive perspective. He stated that he had down days, [...]


No Looking Back

by Teresa Smith on June 23, 2014

OK… I admit it. I did a bad thing while driving the other day. No, I wasn’t putting on makeup, I wasn’t texting… none of that. I was driving down a road near my home and saw a sign posted the opposite direction of how I was driving. I looked in my rear view mirror, [...]


Source of Light

Many of you know that I have a couple of cats. Lorenzo has been with me since he was several weeks old. He just celebrated his 10th Birthday in April. Bella is doing well also. I rescued her a couple of years when I found her while doing some photography north of here. I try [...]
