TAKE TIME FOR FOOD FOR THOUGHT
(From the "Take Time" newsletter -- a monthly e-zine. Please

This past year I have discovered coaching and it has become a passion
for me. It has proven to be both rewarding and challenging. While coaching
and trying to decide what specialty I would choose, I thought that since
all of life's issues seem to touch on the spiritual, spiritual life coaching
was the best fit for me.
With that in mind, I am launching an email series called Take Time for
Food for Thought. I intend to send something every other week and I hope
you find something that touches your spirit.
"The spiritual life is an endless river, a bottomless spring, a
deep well". (Sue Monk Kidd, Firstlight.)
Ms. Kidd tells a story of an applewood table made in New England for a
farmer sixty years ago. One day a gnawing sound began to emanate from
the table. It kept up for several weeks until a bug emerged, unfurled
its wings and flew away.
An insect had been deposited in the trunk of the tree before it was made
into a table and had remained in the wood all these years. Warmed, perhaps,
by the heart of a coffee urn place on the table, it hatched and a little
bug gnawed its way out.
We all have seeds with in us of hidden promise. We just have to take time
to recognize our potentials - time to nurture our spirits.
Have you had time to nurture your spirit?
Do you have practices that keep you on track - balanced?
We all have a desire to be well balanced, in our minds, bodies and spirits.
But we need to be aware of the importance of taking that time to nurture
When we take the time to focus on one task or one thought at a time, we
naturally tend to slow down, and become more aware and conscious of what
we are doing.
Until the next Take Time.
