Points to Ponder

Don't you realize that the sea is the home of water?  All water is off on a journey unless it's in the sea, and it's homesick, and bound to make its way home someday.

-Zora Neale Hurston

Women have always been the guardians of wisdom and humanity which makes them natural, but usually secret, rulers.  The time has come for them to rule openly, but together with and not against men.

-Charlotte Wolf

Women know a lot of things they don't read in the newspapers.  It's pretty funny sometimes, how women know a lot of things and nobody can figure out how they know them.

-Mary Daly


  • A true friend is like a rainbow after a storm.
  • Faith looks ahead, hope looks up, love looks around to see who it can help.
  • Sick and tired of being sick and tired.
  • Good, better, best. Never let it rest until your good gets better and your better gets best.
  • We can't live without our lives.
  • You are divinely purposed, made in the feminine image of God.
  • Because you are an original masterpiece, No one can beat you at being yourself.
  • Spiritual evolution starts from the inside and manifests on the outside.
  • Greatness is in our Spiritual DNA.
  • I believe that the truth about any subject only comes when all sides of the story are put together, and all their different meanings make one new one.  Each writer writes the missing parts to the other writer's story, and the whole story is what I'm after.  -Alice Walker
