Voice from the Past

Delinda

 .

It was a beautiful sunny day in Pacadena, CA.  I was driving in from Las Vegas, crossing the city on the I-210.  I can still see the day in my mind. My cell phone rang and I didn’t recognize the phone number, but felt compelled to answer.  (I don’t know about you but many times I don’t answer a call if I don’t recognize the number, and I’ll let it go to voice mail).

.

Not that day, I answered – a voice from my past. It was a friend that I hadn’t talked to since… gosh around 1971-72.  

 “Hi Dee, it’s Sherry Rambin from LC”.  Once she spoke I did recognize her.  WOW! was I surprised and thrilled.  That however wasn’t the only surprise.  She told me she had been listening to the radio and they played the song, “Let There Be Peace on Earth”, she thought of me and searched for a way to connect. Why? I asked her.  

.

She remembered me singing the song to a group of kids at a special school in Pineville, LA.  Sherry and I, as well as my roommate Martha Huffstetler, taught Sunday School for these special kids. I don’t recall singing the song, but she did.  Funny, isn’t it.  Sometime we make profound impact on people and we often don’t even know it.  We had a great visit and connected on FB, and YES, she is the same College friend who filmed our momentous event in the Grand Canyon. THANKS SHERRY for that phone call.

.

She inspired me to record this song, so I’m sharing it with you – a little New Year’s gift to you.  

.

Let There Be Peace on Earth.  Peace in our homes, neighborhoods, families, schools, churches…

Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with…. Me!  

Peace.

 

 

Shalom –

Let Go!

That’s right.  Let Go!  

 .

  • Let go of the negative thoughts that hold you back.

  • Let go of the behavior that keeps you from your dreams.  

  • Release all the activities that keep you from your passion and purpose.

 .

A few years ago I realized that I couldn’t move forward because I was spending all my time doing things I thought I SHOULD be doing instead of the things that God had for me.  Just because you are volunteering, giving your time to worthy causes, or even using your gifts and talents at church… doesn’t mean that you are doing what God has in store for you.  Often we are doing lots of  ‘good’ things just not God’s Best!

.

Make a list of everything you do.  (This alone can be a challenge.)  At the time of my Release, I was working with a coach and she had me write down everything I did in one week… basically throw up on the page… then send it to her.

 .

It was pretty funny. She told me after she read my list, she had to take a nap.  LOL!  What I didn’t realize was, I was so BUSY doing good stuff that I didn’t have time or energy to really move forward toward had God had in store for me. I was trying to control so many things (ha can you imagine?). The truth is I just thought I was controlling. It took me 2 years of ‘Releasing’ but it was worth it. What I found was that letting go is true freedom!

.

What about you?  Are there things in your life you need to release… to let go… to rearrange?  I bet there is.

.

Make a list, pray about it, and then see what God has for you.  It was a turning point for me.  I pray it will be for you as well.

I Believe in you – Do you?

.

I believe in you – Do YOU Believe in YOU?  Most of the time I hear people say derogatory things about themselves.  Have you ever gotten a compliment and then said something like,  Oh no, not me?   Oh it was nothing,  Oh Shucks!  I see people stumble and hem haw around all the time.  How about just owning it and saying  Thank you!  Believing in yourself is acknowledging God’s gift to you.  When you downplay it, etc., it is showing disrespect to your Creator. 

.

I believe you – Isn’t it time you started believing in YOU?  Believe in who you are created to be.  To step into the greatness that is planted in your heart.  Not from an egotistical way but in gratitude.  

.

When we step into who we are, our gifts and talents, it shows gratitude in being a child of God and being thankful for the joy of using our gifts. When I speak or sing in front of a group it gives me such joy.  It is part of what I am created to do… and I am grateful for every opportunity.

 

I believe in You. How about you? Believing in yourself is the first step.

WOW the WORLD CONFERENCE

in Las Vegas information

GO TO WOW THE WORLD PAGE

 

Let’s Start…

A new week beginning  . . . don’t you love Mondays, fresh start and all.  What?  You don’t like Mondays?  I hear that a lot.  (BTW – It may be a negative thought you want to change in 2017… every week has a Monday so it might be better to be positive about it… just saying =).

 .

My week is starting off great in that I’m going to speak to a networking group led by Missy Day, called ‘Like Minded’.  It’ll be a time of sharing and meeting some new people which is the part I love about networking; meeting new people, finding out about the different businesses out there, and hearing what people are doing. And Yes, you heard correctly, I love networking. Again, is this one of those areas that you don’t really love? Maybe you don’t like it or I’ve even heard a few people say they HATE it.

.

Since I have heard that from numerous people I have decided to share some great news.  I just finished reading a book by a great friend, Cathy Weaver in Kansas City.  She is awesome and so fun. Cathy has really great tips for those of you who may not like networking, may have tried it and you thought you were going to be rich by the next day (not quite the correct expectation), or maybe you just felt uneasy and uncomfortable.

 

This book is for the beginner as well as for those of you who may have been doing networking events for a few years.  

Here is what I like about her book:

  • Easy to read

 

Great visual (I like white space on a page and not all text)

Pictures that made me smile

Actual examples of what to do

How to do it tips

 

So YAY Cathy for writing the book and sharing her insight and knowledge!  You can get it on Amazon.com (click below or on pic)

“Networking on STEROIDS”  

You can also check out her website at www.cathyweaverKC.com

 

(BTW – Cathy will be speaking and sharing speaking to our MeetUp group n KC at our March luncheon.)

.

So for me, I’m going to attend one networking event each week… isn’t that cool.  I can’t wait to see who I will meet, what kind of interesting things I will learn, and how I can help connect people together.

 .

Go out and make it a great week!  It is your choice.

‘Til Next Time –
