A busy day for us (though not as busy as it was for the Donald)
We went to our normal breakfast at our Dutch Country Market and picked up a few items from there for dinners.
Came home to watch the inauguration, and then up to see the movie “Hidden Figures”. (I recommend it, btw)
One line that impressed me in Donald Trump’s speech was “We must think Big and Dream Bigger” And another line, this from Hidden Figures at the end, when the Main character, Katherine, was talking with her Boss asking about the possibility of the Moon shot, she responded with “We’re already there, sir”
So I write now a prayer.
In God are all possibilities. As I know that there is only one, one mind, one experience, one joy. And since there is only one, I know that this one is in, through, and around me and all that I know and experience. I am blessing the progress we have made in our relations to each other, our future and our past. Knowing that what we as a country, as a world and as a congregation, have in front of us is so much grander than what has been, I am knowing that with God’s guidance and that with God’s strength, that we can and will be all that we are to be. I know that there is a source of joy and peace, that is made manifest every day. I do give thanks for this knowing, and the truth of my words. I release my words to the law of life, knowing that it is true, and is made manifest. AND SO IT IS…
With Joy and love

Today is my day! (OK – Every day is my day! And I hope you feel it is your day too!) Today is my day to hold Celebration Center for Spiritual Living in prayer. And I have. Through this day I have kept you in my heart as I have felt the high energy of Life moving throughout my day. I have felt this as I did tasks for our Center and in my own home. I keep breathing and remembering and praying. This day is here just for me and just for you. This moment when we acknowledge one another is purely ours. We become One energy.
There is only One absolute, without beginning, without ending, reaching into the depths and heights and widths and breadths of all we can imagine – and in-between and beyond. Love, Light, Pure Truth and Knowingness are all attributes of Spirit.
I recognize my connection…to the All that Is, To the Fullness of Love. And – as I know that the totality of All that is, is beyond my grasp – still I know a bit of It. I experience It as I am aware and I trust. I believe I am invited to use this power of good. I know this experience of connection and more is here for each and every person reading this prayer. I know that each is part of this Divine energy.
I realize that each of us is at choice. I know I am at choice in my mind, in my home, at my Center and in the World. Words that I agree with and words that I question are all good for me to learn and discern. Wow – how exciting! I ask: What do you have to teach me today? What can I learn from you today? And I am at choice to be in agreement or not. I know that each individual is not bound by his or her precedent, and free to move and shift and change and grow when ready and willing to see more.
I am grateful that my mind is free and that I can choose my focus. I am grateful for this prayer pouring forth before the clock strikes midnight! I am grateful for you. I am grateful for our lives here on this planet at this time, knowing we are each serving our unique purpose. And I am grateful for Life Itself. I am grateful that we support one another in knowing all good for one another.
What a joy to speak and just be. What a joy to know that doing is a choice and is an option available to us. What a joy to know that we are each free to choose how we express our love in the world.
Releasing in Joy.
And so it is. Amen (and a little woman*)

My first prayer day of the New Year, and I didn’t get to it until it was almost over.
Change is in the air. We have a new president coming in a few days. Tonight I had the first session of my online class. We travel again this weekend. Much is happening. The Divine Life is flowing.
And so we pray:
There is only One Life. it is All in All.
That Life, in, as, through, and around all, is Energy in all its forms. We move in it, as it moves through us. All that It is, we are.
I know that that movement fills my life with joy, peace, abundance, health, and so much more.
I am thankful for all the exciting new things unfolding in my life, and for the blessings that are ongoing.
And I know that it is done here and now.
And SO it IS!

Treasure Mapping in Life
I leaf through the pages of divine possibility recognizing one thing after another that spark my attention.
I clip them out and bring them into my own consciousness, arranging them with one another on the treasure map of my life. They unify with me as I paste them into a montage of my life.
I stand back and view the final montage, realizing its power to inspire and guide me in the coming year.
I am so grateful for the way they flow together to lead me forward this year.
I now release this new page of life onto the wall of my den to be my guide all year.
And so it is. Amen.

Another trip around the sun completed, another beginning. Traveling can be hard work.
As I begin my journey I find it is always a good Idea to start by prayer.
I sit knowing that there is only one, one precious life, one loving comforter. I am one with this, and all that I know is an outpouring of this one. I know that life is having an adventure through me. I know that life is having an adventure with and through all of us. It is an adventure of love, an adventure of knowing and joy, assisted by wisdom. I court all of these as a lover courts the beloved. I know that we are all walking the path of loving courtship to the beloved with joy in our steps. As in the last line in the last song of Les Miserables, “To love another person is to see the face of God.” May I see the face of God in all that I see. My heart is filled with love and joy, as I knowingly give thanks, and release this prayer to the power of the love in me and as me.
Happy to be me

I invite you to smile, breathe and bring your awareness to the Love of God and the Power of Spirit. Focus your total awareness on this present moment, letting go of any action items other than being fully present here and now.
There is only one power. It is present here now and is always totally present. I can pretend there is something missing or wrong, yet God can never be gone or wrong, for God is the creator of all, the connector of all and the consciousness of all.
I am, always have been and always will be God in action. All parts of me are connected to this Presence. Truth for me is Truth for you. You are, always have been and always will be God in action. Truth for you and I is Truth for all. We are, always have been and always will be God in action.
I expand my awareness of God’s Love and celebrate the truth of my being. I see us overcoming any block and releasing any resistance as we expand our individual and collective understanding of Love in action. Today as I bear witness to each person in my life, I take stock of any judgment, any blame or any pettiness I have in my little mind. Then I shift to a bigger picture of seeing God at work in my Life and all lives. I emblazon in my mind that Love is active in everyone, everything, and is everywhere at all times. I accept my work today as opening all my senses to Love, pausing to sense and feel God’s Presence right where I am and allow It to shine through me.
I celebrate all the good that comes forth today and give gratitude for all blessings. I give thanks for what God is calling forth from us and know that this blesses the world.
I now speak a word of Love, Peace and Well-being as we release this prayer to the great law of the universe. And so it is.
May the grace of God go before us.
Blessings and Amen

Just two weeks from today, it will be Christmas Eve. Just three weeks from tonight, it will be New Year’s Eve. And in just ten days, it will be Suzanne’s birthday. (We’re planning on going up to Merriweather Post Pavilion and seeing the Symphony of Lights.)
It has started to act like December out there. The last few days have been cold.
Major League Baseball was in town for their Winter Meetings (just concluded Thursday), we saw an opera today, classes resume next month, and we are beginning to catch up with the busyness of the season. At the same time, we remember to stop, step back, breathe, and be open (to quote Devotion.)
And so we simply let go of the old, embrace the new, and remember to take time in the busy season to get in touch with Spirit.
And so we pray:
I know that there is only One Life, God, in all, as all through all, around all. It is Perfect, Whole, Complete. it is Love, Joy, Peace, Harmony, Abundance, Prosperity, Health, and all that is.
I am That. Each of us is That. We are God in form and expression here and now. All that God is, each of us must be and is.
We approach the season in Love, Joy, and Peace, with anticipation and excitement. The decorations, the music, the activities, those related to Christmas and those seemingly unrelated, all come together to fill us with that peace, joy, love. The music of the season reminds us of the harmony that God is being as us. The decorations remind us of the celebration and joy. The tree reminds us of eternal life. The lights remind us of that light that is us. The cold weather reminds us to take care of ourselves and each other. We are reminded to help whoever may need help. We let that joy fill us as we move forward into the new, the ever expanding, the exciting, joyful, abundant adventure within. And we say yes to all of it.
Remembering always the Source, I am grateful for all of this. I am thankful for the many blessings we are reminded of in this season.
And so I simply know that all that needs to be done and should be done and wants to be done is done and done well. I simply let go, trusting God and knowing that Divine Order demonstrates and manifests it all. And so I simply let the Universe do what it does.
And SO it IS!

Wow, short and late go together beautifully in my life when it comes to writing scheduled treatments during this busy season. So —-
I recognize and celebrate the divine experience of these upcoming holidays. We all use our divine nature as we write holiday letters and cards and messages to sent to loved ones and friends.
We truly become One and unify with one another through our holiday communications and sharing.
I realize that we all flow through these holidays with Joy and Merriment.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to simply celebrate this season and all it brings into our lives.
I release our words of “Happy Holidays” into the lives of all who read this and into the law of Celebration of Life, now.
And so it is, Amen.
