So often this question "are you out of your mind?" gets asked when someone is speaking or behaving irrationally. Our response to someone who is behaving out of the norm is "you need to calm down". There is also a inference that some type of detachment from reality is occurring. Essentially, the individual asking the question is concerned about the observable changes in their loved one's decorum.  Usually the person behaving "differently" is totally oblivious to this real or perceived transformation. When a person is in the process of discovering their destiny or purpose they must shed their old skin. There is no way a person can shift or transition into purpose on purpose without appearing odd to familiar folks. Jesus' behavior in the Garden of Gethsemane was confusing to his Disciples. Why? The purpose for His coming was coming closer to fulfillment. We have often heard it said that if you want something you've never had you h

I understand most people were looking at the amount of years spent with a company and equated it to retirement. I heard a minister say if you look at the word retire it gives a full description of the word. He stated RE-TIRE is to become tired all over again. Oh no who wants that? I know re-tiring is not for me as I have no intentions of being tired and exhausted again. I've spent almost twenty-nine years existing within the confines of State and Federal regulatory guidelines. Some days I felt as if I couldn't breathe there was so much cramped and stuffed in a given day. Now is the time for me to live my passion and do what I enjoy. Now is the time for me to breathe. I love sharing the message of hope with others and providing assistance. However, I will no
