Today I pray you show me the way. You’re asking me to go so far, far away. I just arrived; I thought I was here to stay. But the voice continues to insist, it’s further this way.   So I get quiet and sink down deep. I promise to not make a peep. And when … More Divine Guidance

A Dream

She sits on the stairs and looks at the door.  This home is no longer her own.  She feels the cool wood beneath her, firm and weathered by time and life.  She has placed herself two steps from the landing.  The height just right to accommodate his torso.  She’s laid a sweater down on the … More A Dream

Miracles

Every single moment is a miracle.  Can you imagine how different your life would be if this truth was at the forefront of your awareness every step, every breath?  I thought to myself, I haven’t noticed any synchronicities today.  A voice replied, “You haven’t been paying attention”.  The world and its existence is a miracle. … More Miracles
