The Spiritual Meaning of Double Rainbows

A friend sent me a link to a double rainbow on youtube that's gotten over 4 million views.  He wrote on my facebook wall, "you and this guy should hang out."  See, this friend of mine was with me when I saw my first double rainbow.  When it happened, I sort of sounded like this dude in the video, (only I wasn't weeping openly as he seems to be doing about two minutes in...)

Happy Father's Day

As I wrote about earlier in the week, this is a tough day for someone who lost their dad on Father's Day.  But there are plenty of things to celebrate.  Whether you have a father or were raised by your mother, honor those parental figures today.  Take a picture and savor them later.  Here are a few of my favorite fathers.  Enjoy.

Anniversaries are bitter sweet

June used to be my favorite month.  Between weddings, Father's Day, and family birthdays, the Weigels were always celebrating.  But that all changed when my dad Tim Weigel died on Father's day nine years ago.

Getting married? Make it a destination!

I recently went to a destination wedding in the Bahamas for one of my oldest family friends, Armen Jr.  It was a beautiful place, surrounded by clear blue water.  Having been to my share of weddings over the years, (most of them for my own parents,) I now know that getting married in a far away place is the only way to go...

Kids see things we don't

The other night I was tucking my son into bed.

"Look, Mom!"  He said.

"What?"  I asked.

"The Angel," he said, pointing to the sky.

Rielle Hunter gives spiritual warriors a bad name

I was driving home from work yesterday and I got an email from someone telling me I had to watch the Oprah interview with Rielle Hunter- John Edward's mistress.  

"She says she's spiritual- but really- she's so full of it!"  The email said.

So I watched the re-run at 11pm last night.  I still feel sick to my stomach.

Write your kids a letter- NOW!

Today, my son turns four.  It's hard to imagine my life without him.  I told him that many times today, all to be told, "Move Mommy- I need my fiyah twuck!"

So in this digital age- where everything is texted and tweeted- I am going to take a minute to write him a note.  I will print it up and put it somewhere safe for him to read someday.  I suggest you do the same...

God loves sinners- even Tiger Woods

A comment from a reader-

Dear Jen,

i agree that only God has the right to judge a woman who is an exotic
dancer. And He loves her just as He loves me or you. However, the fact
still stands that she is causing other people-her brothers in Christ-to
sin. When the 10 Commandments say not to commit adultery, He also means
lust (Matthew 5:28). Disobeying one of the 10 Commandments is sinning.
Is it better to cause one of your brothers to sin than to commit a sin
yourself? I believe it's worse to knowingly cause someone else to
stumble.

If you THINK about getting some- you just might!

Did you know that just THINKING about someone you really dig can actually cause them to have a physical reaction?  This isn't my "woo-woo" stuff talking either, there's actual research behind it.
