Wholesome Thoughts

“So when you’re cold
From the inside out
And don’t know what to do,
Remember love and friendship,
And warmth will come to you.”

Stephen Cosgrove said that in Gnome from Nome, and he was right. Just as physical cold causes contraction, so does emotional cold. When you are feeling love and warmth emotionally, your muscles are more likely relaxed. We really are body, mind, and spirit.

Sacred Stories

The most recent addition to the SCS website, Sacred Stories, is your invitation to again be enchanted by stories. As we honor our experiences—especially those that do not fit neatly into our logical structure of thinking—you let the soft animal of your body relax into a larger meaning of life.

Black Ice

It was still dark when they loaded up the car, pulled out of the garage, and headed toward the highway. They were on their way to a visit with their grandchildren.

About twenty minutes from home, as he was passing a slower moving vehicle, a third driver pulled into the far left lane passing him. That car hit a patch of unrecognized black ice and began to slide.

Everything happened so quickly, but she saw an angel (he looked a lot like Mr. Clean from the TV commercials) step in front of their car, take his hand and push the careening car ever so slightly, preventing a collision.

In a blur, that vehicle safely shot across all three lanes completely perpendicular to the highway!
