“Is That All There Is?"
It starts out with that feeling in your gut, as singer Peggy Lee put it, “Is That All There

feeling and then your mind understanding that feeling. Then you must open your heart,
your soul and allow God to lead you on your new life journey. It won't be easy to make
the changes but it will be well worth it. Listen to your soul, listen to Him he will lead the
