Weekend Wisdom – Blossoming Hope

There is always hope because of the constant things in life like stars, violets, and crocus. They are always there and you may not see them because of clouds, snow, and other things. But they are there and they return every, night or every year.

So plant hope in your heart and watch how God lets it blossom. The light of hope will extinguish all darkness.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13 (NIV)

Weekend Wisdom: The Maker’s Help

12 years ago today, I started needing a lot of my Maker’s help. He’s been there every step of the way, whether or not I’ve been able to see or feel Him.

Raise Up Extraordinary Women: Alyssa Cohen

I wanted to do something special for the start of the next 1,550 blog posts but could not decide what would be appropriate. This morning while checking my Facebook feed to see if someone responded to my comment, I came across this post from long-time friend Gabriana Marks.

For the month of December she is highlighting 31 extraordinary women who have touched her life. Join me in reading about the different women and sharing on social media Gabriana’s posts.

Then go tell the women in your life why they are extraordinary.

Oh and by the way, these posts are written by one extraordinary woman as Gabriana is a full-time caregiver to her mother while dealing with her own health issues.

God bless you, Gabriana.

For the month of December, I’ll be shining light each day on some extraordinary women I know. They represent various fields and backgrounds, and I admire each for their passion and strength. These are bold, beautiful, brave women — artists, businesswomen, union organizers, nurses, writers, teachers, movie makers, designers, reporters, and all-around badasses.

Alyssa Cohen is a clinical psychologist who hails from New York. She now lives in Southern California with her husband and an adorable rescue dog, Yofi! She loves spending time with family and friends, baking, scrapbooking, and reading. She currently works for the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
