Christmas Advent Season is here. My Christmas prayer and wish is

Peace on Earth; Goodwill Towards Humankind

Thursday, October 26, 2017


Halloween approaches which has turned into a 4 day holiday plus weeks of advance fright shot into the atmosphere. I know one little girl only 7 years old that is turned off this year, doesn't want to trick or treat or dress up in a costume. She doesn't like to talk about it either. 
I am almost at that point as well. The horror of the massive hurricanes that struck Texas and Florida where I have relatives and friends, the terror of the aftermath in Puerto Rico, and near home the California fires have all brought me to a breaking point.

The fires of Northern California are closest to me, especially since I plan on moving to Sonoma County. I slipped into my own trauma, melting down at the dentist office to be sent home because I was so frightened by what was happening only 2 hours away. My county shut down schools and it was hard to breathe for days. I can't imagine the toxicity of the air in Santa Rosa, all over those beautiful northern counties. Wine country, full of ambiance and good will on fire.

I read many personal stories, heartbreaking, and who can forget the courage and bravery of our first responders as they saved people and faced the fires to extinguish them in whipping wind. Racing fires that jumped and raced ahead, people unable to outrun them. 
Today they say the fires will be extinguished by Friday, tomorrow. Before Halloween, the Day of the Dead. People are returning to the joy they were spared or the sorrow of losing their home and lifelong memories. 

We all have been witnessing the amazing community of these counties as they pull each other up. How they are there for one another is a life affirming experience. That is why I wanted to move to our wine country. The community is so genuine and thoughtful and sweet. Now I know it has been tested by fire and it will be even deeper than ever.

Sonoma Strong!

It is the time before the Ascension and then Pentacost, 
a holy post-Easter season spanning till June 4.

Miracles happen now, prayers are powerful. The new budget from the US Congress has kept the EPA, the NEA so I am breathing a little easier. Now praying for the hope/justice money of compensation. God bless the USA and the people that live here who didn't give up.

Lent, Holy Week, Passover, Good Friday and Easter 2017








It has been a hard winter here in Northern California with the rains and flooding but the hardness came as a blessing because of the drought. We have enough water now to not have to worry at least for this next year. But worries never cease with the new President and Congress taking over and destroying decades of work by both Republican and Democratic Parties and the world in regards to our environment and global warming, the earth's climate change. Education has been disbanded federally, and the take down of our clean air, water, federal protections for lands and habitats, animals, plants and places of endearment to the American people are being sold off to greedy corporations who only want to profit themselves. It has been a difficult time for those of us who work on the front lines of  environmental causes. God bless us all and may he protect us as this time goes by. I believe in miracles so I hope maybe he will have a few to shower us with this Spring as Easter approaches. The love He showed us over 2,000 years ago in the sacrifice of his son for forgiveness of our sins so our admittance into heaven will be there at the gate, and also to enjoy his earth in better ways is still in force. Please pray for our country and the protection of the life here and in that way you will be praying for the protection of the life of the entire world. Amen
