In the Flow

Tonight we had a few hours with a family here at the Penny Palace.  As they departed, my heart was doing happy somersaults.  I stood in the driveway thinking "THIS is why the Penny Palace was built.  It is a tool to teach and to inspire".   

What do YOU have which can inspire or lift up other people?  Perhaps a talent, an object, a way of thinking or merely your smile?

Louis had been our rep at our bank for the past few years.  We really got along well with him.  Last year Louis left the bank.  He and his wife took “a leap of faith” to pursue their heart-led desire to develop Sweet Dough Cafe.  It has been quite a roller coaster ride and a few weeks ago things were looking pretty bleak.  Plus, Louis and Kiesha have four boys and recently adopted two little girls.  Pretty scary point in their lives and their situation seemed overwhelming.

Tonight L&K along with their two older boys came to visit the Penny Palace.  In every room and around every corner of the Penny Palace are symbols of “miracles”.  This place houses hundreds of examples of manifesting.  Hopefully hearing the stories gave the family new energy to keep moving toward their dreams.

To those of you who went through the building of the Penny Palace, you already KNOW the “COINcidences” which brought it to reality.  To any new readers, you can read the day-by-day stories on the Penny Tales blog.

May the Penny Palace continue to inspire each of YOU to move forward in achieving YOUR heart’s desires.

Incoming Update:  On the way home Louis and family stopped for a yogurt.  While enjoying their treats, a gentleman approached them asking for help. 
We destroyed the car looking for change to give...I was bummed and apologized to the man because we had no change for him. I asked him if he would like something to eat. He chose a chicken burrito and beverage.  I drove to Taco Bell, but the drive through line was too long so I decided to go inside.  I ordered the man’s meal and when I was about to fill up his cup of cola there were two brand new shiny Pennies on the counter!” 

Was this COINcidence?  Or were the Penny Angels literally offering their 2¢ worth in saying “Job Well Done”

To quote a verse from Matthew: “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

Exciting New Project

You KNOW that Doc and I often get involved (or dragged into) some of the most interesting "projects". 

From solar cars to the Garden of Hope, from Penny Palace to racing in Abu Dhabi, there is NEVER a boring day.

This afternoon we were offered a new opportunity in which we are both Honored and Terrified.  We were asked to officiate at a wedding!  (We didn't know "common folk" could do such a thing).

These two "kids" are two of the most talented Engineering Students we had the privilege of working with at Cal Poly Pomona.  We have watched them grow as individuals and as a couple over the past nine years.

Next step:  
Doc and I might need to search all our old textbooks to see if there is an equation we can "plug the words into" to come up with the "Correct Script!"  LOL

Some of you might recognize Andrea Ferris and Kevin Salvini:

Aha Moment

Have you ever spent days searching for something around your house?  You KNOW it’s there – somewhere.  That was my situation for the past week.  I had been searching for my four foot folding table.  I searched every room, closets, both garages, the loft, the dungeon and any place else I could think of.  I searched some of those several times.  The table seemed to be nowhere in this house. (Or perhaps my eyes were just not seeing it).

Yesterday I finally gave up and muttered, “Hello Angels.  I have been unable to find this table on my own; I am asking for YOUR help.  Please open my eyes to help me see the table”. 

A few hours later, I was tucking Liesel and Sheila in their cages next to our bed.  As usual, I tossed them their treats.  One of the treats went astray and I had to reach to get it.  I came up short and bumped my head on the table over the doggie beds.  THE Table!  AHA!  There it is!  The angels actually knocked me on the head to show it to me!   LOL
