Open Heart Creativity


The magnificence of God’s extension lies within each of us, ready to manifest. Our only real choice is whether to allow it or block it. We begin to allow when we ask that the Will of Love be made manifest through us. But the day-to-day, moment-by-moment “choice switch” is at the heart. With open hearts, … Continue reading

Independence Day Indeed


Since the Course came through the Americans Helen Schucman and Bill Thetford, I wondered if Jesus included a special lesson for us on Independence Day.  He did: I want the peace of God. To say these words is nothing. But to mean these words is everything. If you could but mean them for just an … Continue reading

One Little Prayer: God’s Grace Is Enough


I have no cause for anger or for fear, for You surround me. And in every need that I perceive, Your grace suffices me.   (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 348) I have every reason to feel safe and abundant.

A Prayer for Turbulent Times


  Father, help us. Help me help You help us to remember who we are and what it means to be Yours— what it means to be part of the Oneness. Thank You for this breath. Thank You for guiding me to the next right action or inaction. Thank You for everything. The All is … Continue reading

And … Continue reading

It involves a family member’s physical and mental illness, and straightening out the effects of lifelong dysfunction and unhealthy decisions. It requires a lot of communication, both written and verbal, and some red tape. The situation is a can … Continue reading

Let Us Say Amen


 Grace Notes: of Music and Spirit Let the Church Say Amen Prescript: One Sunday I was running errands and none of my default radio stations were playing a song to my liking. So I tried the jazz station. When I heard strains of gospel music I had the urge to immediately switch back. I don’t … Continue reading

Every Need that I Perceive – Update


Because we are powerful co-creators and manifestors, it’s a good idea to bring consciousness to our desires.  Let us be clear on what we want for our lives and what we need to bring our visions to fruition.  But let us be equally clear that with our lives we are creating squares for the larger … Continue reading

Having Caught a Glimpse


Grace Notes: of Music and Spirit Having Caught a Glimpse I am always noticing the voice of the Holy Spirit in music—current and old, sacred and secular, intentional and unintentional.  This is part of the still, small voice that speaks to all of us, through all things, that we may have the opportunity to wake … Continue reading
