Cast Light is a prompt, a daily reminder to find and give the best to yourself and others. Every single day we choose to either “cast shadows” (gossip, complaints, cynicism) or to “cast light” (enthusiasm, encouragement, generosity). Life is made up of moments and choices. In all that you think, do and say, look for light and cast it back out.

  5. What a beautiful blog, and wonderful quotes. I particularly enjoyed the Viktor Frankl quote in your sidebar. I read his book “Man’s Search For Meaning” during my undergrad, and it was a remarkably empowering work of literature. Good stuff here, keep it up. 🙂

    For those of you visiting Kathie’s blog without knowing her personally, let me “cast some light” on who this person is. Kathie is one of the most wonderful people I’ve ever come into contact with. I’m the girl who has hundreds of acquaintances, but a few close friends. Kathie is in my close friend circle. She is always helping and giving; expecting nothing in return. Time spent with her is full of smiles and laughs. I treasure those moments and her friendship. You would be wise to continue to visit her blog for a daily dose of fun, wisdom, and witty commentary!

  13. Thank you all for your kind comments on the blog. I started a few months ago after kicking it around for six months and am glad I kicked myself into finally doing it. I’ve enjoyed the discipline of writing on a regular basis, reflecting, finding new resources, sharing with others and continuing to be aware of the joy in every day. Thanks for the Liebster Blog Award from StillValerie – I am new to all of this and appreciate the feedback and support. It surely is an abundant life. Cast light every day – the world needs it.

    Hi Kathie,
    Your blog intent is simply wonderful. It is great to be reminded and see others focusing on the good and positive. It resonates with me, since childhood whenever I would get frustrated or frightened I would imagine myself to be a bright light from the inside out and only think of goodness. Whatever it was that bothered me always disappeared.

    Thank you for liking our blog Our intent is very similar, sharing what our local valley’s and those that inspire us; artisans, farmers, and individuals and what they are doing that make our and your communities life a little sweeter.

    peace, love, light, joy to you.

    April 6, 2012

    April 7, 2012
  38. I am also glad that you liked my post. As a matter of fact, I am in awe of this time on our planet and the possibilities for all of us to grow into the spiritual beings that we have working towards being since coming into the human form this time.
    And, I am so grateful for all the spiritual bloggers on the web and for the angels and other spiritual beings in my up-close-and-personal life.
    Two of my lessons for this lifetime have been and continue to be GRATITUDE and RADICAL FORGIVENESS, which of course are related.
    But, for the moment here, I am focusing on GRATITUDE with UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. As much as I fought and resisted to come into human form this lifetime, I am so GRATEFUL now to be here. What opportunities to heal, serve and grow exponentially into more of my Christ self, while learning from all of you and sharing with you, as well. We have so much to learn from each other. Blessed be.

  75. Hi Kathie! I’ve browsed through your blog a few times and just thought I’d drop by and say hi. 😀 I love the meaning behind your name. Words of wisdom! All the pictures you have of Minnesota are beautiful! I was born in MN and I remember is a white blanket covering everything. lol.

      • Oh how I hated the cold weather. lol. One thing I do miss is the outdoor freezer. “Your soda’s getting warm? Build a cup holder with snow.”

        They’re a great breed. I can’t see myself with any other type. Good luck in finding your 3rd! 😀

Welcome from me. Woof from Ray! 🙂
