I hope and pray that everyone is doing well and is safe. It’s been a trying couple of months, but I am so hopeful that there are better days ahead. I’ve been away from this site for a while working on a second book and also doing some painting. I have great news! My new book has been published and is now available on Amazon. I hope you will check it out. It costs a little bit more than most books, but I promise you, the beautiful, colorful images and inspiring quotes are worth it. Peace, love, and joy always! ~dp

I was taught at an early age that heaven was an actual bright, beautiful place called paradise where you would go if you were a good and righteous person after you die. And if you were a bad person, you would descend into a fiery, dark, evil place called hell. No one knows for sure what happens to us after we die. So for now, I believe we can create our own heaven or hell right here on earth. You are the only authority in your life, and you get to choose. My quote below sums it up quite simply.
There are three sides to every story, one side, the other side, and the truth. When situations arise, there may be innocent bystanders who actually witness the truth. The people causing the chaos who refuse to accept the truth and can never take blame are in danger of losing relationships, friendships, and possibly their jobs.
It’s hard to do it alone. Guidance and support are always available. All you have to do is ask…
As much as we know that death is inevitable for all beings, it is still very hard to let go of the attachment. How can we not become emotionally attached to a beautiful, loving being, an innocent, precious child, or a sweet dog or cat? Life is good, but during these times, I can’t help but wonder what the lessons are. My positive thoughts are to appreciate who we have in our lives while we still have them, and to stay attached to God, even through the difficult times.
