Have you ever experienced a noticeable change after sending a Blessing? I have a few times and one in particular stands out. This young man working for me had a real chip on his shoulder. I silently sent him a Blessing. When I returned several minutes later, he was very courteous and offered to assist […]
Valentine Blessing Feb 7, 2013: Do you know how to say Bless your heart or Bless you in another language?
Recently I heard a couple of women awing and cooing over a new born baby. I heard “bendiga su corazón.” My ears perked up because I knew “su corazón” meant “your heart”. As I watched these ladies, they had softness in their eyes and in their voices. I knew whatever they said, came from their […]
Valentine Blessing Feb 6, 2013: Have you ever blessed an animal?

Valentine Blessings February 2, 2013: What does a Blessings mean to you?
Blessings mean different things to different people. For some it is something that revolves around faith but at other times it seems inappropriate to bless.
