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...

how to sew

my Mother taught me how to sow

there's nothing wrong with me

i can sew a button on a shirt
patch a knee
and hem a skirt

i can change things in my life
take them up
shorten them
or lengthen them

add a button
strengthen a connection
or open a zipper
and let something that is not working
slide away

i can let deception
roll off the table
on to the floor
and watch it disappear
down the alley

there's nothing wrong with me
i can speak
i can communicate
i can sit in stillness and ask
the Holy Spirit/my Own Wisdom
for the Truth

i am the bridge
from one corner of my mind
to the other

i can bring the two sides together
holding each other's hand
and see
that the little child's unknowing
is filled with the Father's wisdom

there is nothing wrong with me
though i may sometimes
lay on the ground
and see only a worm's eye view

the memory of my wings
to unfold
at my request...

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
