Spring is in the Air

Its Spring!


It’s Spring and everything is coming into bloom!  My Garden Angel and I are busy enjoying the sun and making everything even more beautiful. Above are petunias and verbena on the birdbath in the rose garden.

The roses are spectacular this year. Also many are stopping by on their daily walks to admire our desert area in the front of our home.

Joey smells even better than it looks. Can anything be more beautiful?

Share Your Gift

Chicago Peace


“…it is yours, this gift. It is the birthright of every living Soul, but we limit ourselves by thought of limitation. Now, we must open up the doors of our consciousness and expand and expand and expand…” Ernest Holmes

“The great mystics have all agreed that man’s life is his to do with as he chooses, but that when he turns to the One, he will always receive inspiration from on High.” Ernest Holmes

Morning is my most creative time. It’s still dark outside when I take my laptop downstairs and write. This morning I glanced up to see my husband Bill’s painting of the sun just setting at Big Sur in California. I am in awe of his God given talent.

Spirit is always expressing through each of us so that we can lift the heart of others by sharing our gift. Excitement, exhilaration and joy will come to us when we share our gift.

Recently, when I presented a workshop based on my book, From Here to Serenity, A Spiritual Guide to Transform Your Life  a friend said, “You are in your element” and it was true. A lot of opportunities for growth have been presented to me since I wrote and published this inspiring book.

In her movie Louise Hay said she did one thing at a time as she was guided and in taking one step at a time she built a major publishing house. She didn’t know what the end result would be. She trusted and surrendered and because she did, more than she ever dreamed was given to her.

We can learn from Louise that when we trust, when we surrender, our life can flow in amazing ways. Mediate, pray and release and let the Creator take over. Do what your creative gift is and listen to your guidance. Surrender and release. That’s why the fourth step of Spiritual Mind Treatment is so important – surrender and release.

Affirmation: Today I am inspired and filled with joy as I give my gift to the world.

Be A Light in This World

“A divine force flows out from me into the world.
All I encounter are touched by the divine spark within me.”

Julia Cameron, Blessings

The real Self is…the place where God comes to a point of
Individualized and Personified Expression.
“I am the light of the world.”

The Science of Mind, page 332

Recently I went to a Minister and Practitioner Graduation. The theme song the choir sang was Light of the World. Since that time I haven’t been able to get those words out of my mind and many times during the day I find myself singing the words to myself–“Light of the World, Light of the World, you were born to be the Light of the World…” This morning I woke at 3 a.m. realizing that most of us don’t know the full extent of the truth about ourselves. We have forgotten that each and every one of us is The Light of the World.

Everyone needs a Practitioner at one time or another. Ministers and Practitioners have their own Practitioner who they work with when they are in a place of turmoil. When we are in a place of need, any and all of us can call a Practitioner to help us get back on track. We all must realize and know that we can find the Light within ourselves.

The answer to all of our questions and needs lies within. We have all the help we will ever want or crave. All of us have all of the wisdom, all of the love, all of the peace we could possible want or need for Spirit is always within us. We are born with it. God will be with us to the end of the world and even after that.  


I have all the inspiration I will ever need for I was born to be the Light of the World.
