Day 7 of #bahaiblogging
Yes, I am running a day late, but not stressing over it. I started to write a piece about 'Abdu'l-Baha, son of Baha'u'llah, because on Day 6 I reflected on how a smile is like the sun, which led to me remembering 'Abdu'l-Baha once said to a group of people in New York: "I want you to be happy... to laugh, smile and rejoice in order that others may be made happy by you." He then saidRead Full Post »

Day 6 of #bahaiblogging
(Day 4 and Day 5 are in one post)

Just as the 3rd dimension allows an o...Read Full Post »

Day 2 of #bahaiblogging
Today I had the smart but completely un-original idea to blog about my favorite authors, because yesterday was National Authors Day. Then I realized the day is dubbed 'National Author's Day' (note the apostrophe) and I wondered if that meant I had to pick a single author out of all the authors I have read and loved. That would be difficult.

Hi! This is my #1 post for the November 2017 #bahaiblogging challenge. I am posting here on my website, and also on Facebook.
Have you ever met someone at a formal event, been asked to share your thoughts on a deep and important topic, and been stuck for words? Happens all the time, right? Divine things, as the saying goes are "too deep to be expressed by common words." (Read Full Post »
