Step Away – Spiritual Story By David McLaughlan

Step Away

My Dad died last year. He wasn't an old man. Aged sixty-six it seemed to me he had been taken well before his time. You can probably imagine the frustration, the anger, the unexpected flood of tears that have filled the twelve months since then. And I've come to realise that he wasn't "taken before his time". If that was when God chose to take him (and surely it was no one else's call) then that was his time.
The Joy of Spring – Spiritual Story By Brenda Barnhart

The Joy of Spring

I am Jolly Joy, and I'm a happiness! But you, as a human, might know of me as simply, "sunflower". Little do you know that we flowers have our own identities and souls, for indeed we do, along with divine purpose and goals, albeit our goals are much simpler than yours? For instance, my goal in this new incarnation is to feel the Joy of Spring! To you this may seem frivolous, but to me, it is everything. It is all I know, all I yearn for, and all that I live for....
Varuna: Spiritual Surfing – Spiritual Story By Tusta Krishna das

Varuna: Spiritual Surfing

Michael stroked over the first of two waves and halfway up the face of the third, then sat back on his board, grabbed the left rail, reversed his board, and pulled it under him and aimed it down the face of the wave. There was no need to paddle in this situation. The board was like a dart, and the hand of the wave propelled it toward the target. As the wave lifted the tail of his board, he sprang to his feet and poised in a graceful, cat-like stance. He'd been through it dozens of times...
My Birthday Gift – Spiritual Story By Leslie Moon Blackburn

My Birthday Gift

Today is my birthday. Little did I know that God had bigger plans for me than I had for myself. The gift I received today was magical and I was blessed. I chose to listen and then obeyed the still small voice from with in. We truly are God's Angels. Today is my birthday and what a great day I am going to have. I scheduled a vacation day today so I could spend the whole day doing things for myself. I have been thinking of this day for months, in fact I have been planning this day for months...
Sales 101: Loving the People – Spiritual Story By Corinne Edwards

Sales 101: Loving the People

My son Paul got a job with a large chain of guitar stores. He had never worked in a retail organization before. The pay was based on a small salary plus commission. They put him through an extensive sales training. It was the usual stuff on how to approach a customer, present the product and mostly of course, close the deal and make the sale! It was almost like a car dealer's pitch, "Do you want the red car or the white?" He wasn't doing well. To make matters worse...
Reserving Judgment – Spiritual Story By Veronica Haunani Fitzhugh-Hill

Reserving Judgment

I learned a lot today. Early this morning I threw up while driving my husband to work. And, we were both excited about the possibility that I might be pregnant. Then, my husband told me that our child would be raised Pentacostal Holiness like him. I said that we would share in the spiritual upbringing of our child and then allow him or her to decide what was best for him or her. He did not agree with this, because according to his beliefs...
Conversation With Spirit – Spiritual Story By Leslie Moon Blackburn

Conversation With Spirit

Hello spirit, it's been awhile since I have taken the time to sit down and chat with you. I have been so bombarded with life these days that I have been too busy to stop in and say hello. I know my life would have been so much easier if I would have taken the opportunity to quiet my mind, take in some deep breaths and settled down for a nice conversation with you. Well I am finally here and it feels so good to be in your presence...

A Gift for the Birthday Boy – Spiritual Story By Captain Elmo Jayawardena

A Gift for the Birthday Boy

It was a lazy morning during the Christmas week, I do not recall the date, but I do recall it was the time rich cake tasted very poor. This usually happens around the twenty ninth of December. Eating too much of it. The balloons were getting their first lines of deflation. Christmas feeling was still very much around, serenading in the night, carols in the air, a continuous exchange of visits and gifts, an extended celebration of a two thousand year old birth.
Three Summers and the Southern Cross – Spiritual Story By Naria Satrick

Three Summers and the Southern Cross

"We are all connected to the Earth," she was saying, pushing the bead-adorned braids away from my face, then letting her hands rest on my shoulders. I listened, mostly because her mouth was beautiful, hearing her roll over the words in her native tongue was like music. I listened because the light touch of her fingers on my bare collarbone was somehow intense and exciting, yet at the same time comforting. I must have been silent too long, because she...
