“Breathe. You don’t have to get everything done right now.” I saw this posting on Facebook and it beckoned me to allow it to introduce this entry since it was a response to a prayer.

It’s 3:39 a.m. on a chilly in Philly January morning. What the heck I am doing up? My mind is prancing about like a chorus girl on a Las Vegas stage, anticipating the tasks I need to accomplish over the next few weeks. Most of the things before me, I have invited into my life gladly, such as an e-summit I am co-creating, articles for the various publications for which I write, my radio show, workshops I am teaching,  and clients whom I see at the drug and alcohol treatment center where I work. Others show up unexpectedly, like the health challenges that came to call over the past few months, and the medical bills that are not covered by my insurance and my heater that chose to take a partial sabbatical in the midst of the deep freeze. Grateful for space heaters and a good friend who offered a partial fix for it and is working on repairing the rest. Grateful for a warm office, car and gym in which to thaw out. Grateful that the temperatures are moderating over the next few days.  Grateful that in a few minutes, once this article is complete, I will drift back into peaceful sleep. How do I know that will happen?  It always does. As sure as I know that I will get through this temporary challenge because I always have. As I look back at the past 55 years, I have seen that nothing has kept me spinning for very long. I am amply aware that God’s got my back in all things and that all is in Divine Order. Silly as it may seem, I was reassured about that last night.


I had put on earrings yesterday morning that were a Christmas gift from a friend.  I thought that I should put backs on them since on occasion one of a pair jump ship. I didn’t listen to my intuition and by mid afternoon at work, I noticed that the left one was missing. Bummed out since I loved them and my friend would likely be dismayed, I back tracked and looked around the building and the parking lot and even returned to the 7-11 next store to see if it had decided to stay and shop. No dice. Ahhhh well, I asked the angels to help me find it, as they sometimes do. And then I let it go.

Last night, as I was getting ready for bed, I was changing into p.j.’s and what should fall out of my shirt, but the renegade piece of jewelry!  I thanked my angels and the earring for sticking by me. I ask for the willingness and ability to follow that formula in all areas of my life.  Breathe in, breathe out, ask, express gratitude, let go…..repeat~
