The Healing Power of Writing

Hi! Welcome to the Joy of Miracles.

To write is to uncover, to unhide, to bring to light, and express what is within. To share is the end of all private thoughts, all shame, all guilt, all pain and separation. Here is all Joy found at last! Writing helps us to repeat, focus, choose, and remember ideas. The purpose of this writing is healing for all of us.

This blog is inspired by "A Course in Miracles"and The Work of Byron Katie. You are invited to share your comments by clicking on the word "comment" at the end of each post. If you scroll way down there's a little info about me and also an archive of past writing you can view by clicking on the title. Thanks so much for visiting...

i found my heart again
just the other day

she was
laying in the mud
slightly bruised
under a huge old cottowood
in the middle of thunder and lightning

at first i thought that she
should have been somewhere else

but then i remembered that
she always did like the rain
she always did have a thing for mud

so i saw

she was really quite comfortable

and i got down on my knees
and lay down beside her
and put my arm around her

just like old friends

and we lay there together
looking up into the rain

it was pinging!


we jumped up!

and then we looked at each other

and laughed
and laughed

just like kids who get goofy...

and then she said
that this is what resilience is

one day
after a long hard night
you find yourself laying on the ground
in the mud

and instead of getting up
and cleaning off all the debri

you just lie there
in it

you feel it

you take it in

everything !

you just get soaked in it

and after you have soaked up everything
you could possibly get out of it....

you watch

the story


and always
at some point after that...

a moment of laughter

jumps into existence!

About Me

My photo
I have been a student of A Course in Miracles since 1986. It has helped me tremendously to be a happier person by helping me change my perception of everything. I have found writing to be very helpful in the process of practicing, experiencing, and living the ideas in the Course. In 2006 I started sharing inspiration from the Course with a friend. Now it is a joy to share it with everyone. In 2009, The Work of Byron Katie found me at a woman's group. The Work is a way to identify and question your stressfuI beliefs. I dove right in and in April 2013 became a Certified Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie. I work with people privately and offer online classes. Please visit for more information. I also still occasionally lead the 11am Sunday Gathering at the Rocky Mountain Miracles Center in Denver. For more information
