Not Just A Blonde

We are "Not Just" who we seem to be on this Earthly plane, but so much more. We are ALL children of a loving God who is calling us home to Love. This blog is dedicated to those of us on that journey together…

The wind insults me. How could it continue to blow? It’s as if the air isn’t aware that everything is different now! 

Stop wind! Stop! Hasn’t God told you he messed this up? Hasn’t He asked you to quiet down while He thinks? 

How could God have gotten this so wrong? Wind, don’t answer me now. I don’t want to hear it. Hush… hush… hush…

PS This post is in response to the recent passing of a beloved soul. It’s rekindled my heartache for all who are loved and cherished but suddenly are gone. May one day the wind blow peace into those hearts who are hurting and suffering the loss of someone they love. ❤️

Sometimes things happen in this life and it’s like the rug is pulled out from underneath us. I don’t understand why God allows for tragedy… and I’m not sure any “reason” uttered right now could even bring peace in this moment. 

Just over a year ago my friend married the man of her dreams… and yesterday he died. 

They were married over a year ago after a courtship that was just several months long because they knew that they were destined to be together. They just knew. 

They started talking on the phone… for hours. He listened to her, he cared about her: her thoughts, her interests, her hopes and her dreams and he wanted to be a part of them. He loved her. 

They had each been married before. Those marriages brought each of them children before their previous marriages dissolved. His three and her one.  After those two married those families blended together and a stranger truly would not be able to tell who belonged to whom as they all belonged to each other. 

He died suddenly and quick. It was in the morning, from the details I’ve gathered. He was returning home from a run before preparing to go out of town to visit family when he collapsed. 

He was her everything and she was his. No signs of poor health or frailty, his death was a total shock. A switch was flipped from ON to OFF, and off he went to the other side. Without her. Without the children. Without living out all the dreams they had planned. Now the dreams live in the minds and hearts of those who loved him… and she loved him. My God, she truly loved him. 

Oh God, how can you say you believe in love? What loving God would separate two souls who are so happy? Why? I don’t understand it. 

Suffering for years in a loveless marriage God allows, and yet she found love and created a family out of two broken families and then death rips that dream… no, that REALITY of love apart. Why? God, why? More than just “it’s not fair”, it’s… it’s cruel! 

If this life is about learning to love unconditionally, it seems that the prize is often not to experience and enjoy this love in this life for very long. 

Perhaps just knowing it exists is the prize? I know it gives me hope and peace. I know every single day that time is never promised. I’m aware that we are mortal and that this life is not eternal but brief. We don’t live here forever. 

I just can’t help but think “Really, God?! Really?” Her love died too soon. It makes no human sense. I can only hope and pray to get my answer one day when I too cross over… hopefully not too soon.

What are you holding on to? God is waiting for you to just let go… All things that have meaning will never leave you so holding onto them isn’t necessary. Clinging to those things wastes energy that could be used for greater things… things that that bring fulfillment and joy! Let go of that which you cling to… open your heart, your life, and your spiritual arms and feel God’s Loving embrace. ❤️Ann

“Fall in Love with your Life!” If Life is somehow disappointing you, consider for a moment that you may be settling for less than you were created for! The secret to a happy and peace-filled life is not what the world tell us… that is no secret! The secret is that happiness and peace have nothing to do with what the world offers! The secret is we are here for a spiritual purpose… this Life is a mere classroom of Spirit and of Love. Live your life for Love and you will Love your life!

Hello August! I made it through another 30 day challenge! I committed at the beginning of the month to work out everyday for at least 30 minutes a day and I did it! It was MUCH easier than my last 30 day challenge of no sugar! Adding a new habit was much easier than letting go of a bad one, let me tell you! 

What have I gained from this challenge? A more fit body I am sure, but not only that! I’ve noticed an increase in clarity of my mind and an increase in peace. This is one new habit I plan on keeping up… it’s just been to successful to let go! ❤️Ann

Isn’t it true that you can have all it takes to truly be happy and yet be completely miserable? So many of us do not see the treasures within our midst. Even if pointed out by another we scoff and look away, looking then towards those things we believe we are lacking. Getting everything we want in this material realm does not assure contentment in this life. How tragic for those of us who devote so much of our time and energy chasing this lie! 

What happens when we achieve it all? The twisted game continues as there is always more… bigger house in a better neighborhood, the promotion at work, the prestigious award, the higher-end car, the more exotic vacation, smaller waistline, better health, better looks, a more doting spouse, well-behaved and appreciative children, and on and on and on… and yet, those things never will satisfy beyond the moment. 

God is with us in our midst waiting to take our hands and show us what true life is all about. It is not what we have in our grasp or in our possession but what we give to the world! Our happiness lies in contentment with what God has given us for this day as our daily bread as we reach out in faith to feed our brothers. God wants us to know that we already have enough, and those needs we are lacking He will provide when we look towards Him. 

The letting go of our ambitions is never easy because the lie is strong. It taunts us and tempts us away from our happiness. We fear letting go and falling into the depths of despair! That’s why this message is so important: you have all you need in this moment to be happy. 

Let go of the lie and look around at what you have… the many, many blessings. This is where true happiness is, it is when we realize what we have in this life matters not! Our biggest treasure is beyond what most of us can see, touch or feel! The basis of true happiness and peace flows outwards from our souls in the form of the love-infused life-energy of the Divine! This is where happiness lies… within the God-sparked love in our hearts.

How do you love? This question is more important that you think! How we love says much about the status of our happiness and the amount of peace we feel in this life! More specifically, how do you show it to yourself? I challenge you to pay attention to how you show yourself love! What things do you do to nurture yourself? We all could use a little more love in our lives couldn’t we?! Focusing more love upon ourselves will bring more love into our hearts, then we will have more to share! So tell me… I was just wondering… how do you love you?❤️Ann

There is great power in sharing our feelings and fears with others, those outside of ourselves. Somehow when our fears are brought outside of us we can see them for what they are: irrational, unlikely to come to pass, unreasonable, and unworthy of fearing. Sharing our fear with others brings it out of darkness and into the light, dispelling it’s power and releasing us from it’s grasp. Once in the light we can then make decisions based not on fear but on the love we have for others, for ourselves and for God! This is what will keep us on the right path towards our purpose and our peace.❤️Ann

What is your soul searching for in this life? Whinin each of us is a passion that is uniquely our own. Listen carefully in the silence. On our journey of life nothing will bring us greater peace than listening to the voice of the Divine that guides us from within. We are lead down a path towards peace that passes understanding and towards Love that knows no bounds! ❤️Ann
