Dear Goddess, Our Customer Service team is at it again. After all, we have nothing to lose. Well, maybe we could lose our self importance. Or we could lose all sense of modesty. We laugh so hard that we certainly have lost all sense of seriousness.
And what have we gained? When people laugh with complete abandon, they become absolutely beautiful. I noticed this today. We were all laughing so hard that all of us became completely ego-less. Laughter brings out the best in everyone. Laughter brings out the child in us. In fact laughter brings out our inner child.
So today we began another season of slapstick comedy to honor our staff at the Women and Babies Hospital. It’s never too late to begin again. Now our reputations precede us.
There is no where to hide.
On Peace Amen

Dear Goddess, My new iPhone allows me to drive down the road and dictate a prayer for the day. After working all night long, taking care of patients in preterm labor, I feel completely grateful to be alive, healthy and well in this moment.
I will be working two 12 hour nights, one 13 hour night and one 16 hour night this coming weekend. But for some reason, this does not bother me at all. I used to get macho about working long hours. Now, I cannot be bothered by it. After 28 years of full time work, it’s become more routine than ever before, and so, I choose to do what I must do.
But most of the time I’d rather be home with Ulysses. Most of the time I enjoy doing whatever it is that I’m doing and having fun while doing it. As for the extremely long hours working over the weekend, it really doesn’t matter where I am or what I’m doing because wherever I am is where I am, anyway. Time and place is largely insignificant.
It’s an inner job.
The trick is to allow the reality of life be exactly as it is. I don’t have to be anywhere necessarily to have that happen except in this very present moment. Breathe.
So today’s prayer prescription is: Don’t fight it. Go with the flow. Enjoy everything. Everyone has a choice. You might as well make your choices work for you.
Om Peace Amen
Dear God/ess, I am thankful to be back to swimming, again. Today will be my fourth day this week swimming 1/2 mile a day. Mostly what it does is build stamina, an aura of good cheer and the ability to laugh off the crazy inequities in this world. Plus as I embark on 3 12 hour nights followed by a 16, the exercise mobilizes me to sleep well in between the times of stressful hospital crisis.
Yet what is crisis but the opportunity to rise again and conquer?
Rise again and nonviolently conquer (your inner fears, demons and terrors) with the power that is yours today! This is our Prayer Prescription.
Om Peace Amen
Dear God/ess, This day was eventful because I got my Book Launch web Site up, and it is up and running, except that it needs a few more things, small details at this point! I worked with D’vorah Lansky, who is a Web and Graphic Designer. I will certainly need to enlist the aid of Joan Adams to get me on the right track with key words.
So my Prayer Prescription today was to think about the meaning of those words, Prayer Prescriptions: Spiritual Remedies For Long Lasting Health.
We all want to be healthy, but do we really know what that means? For instance, peace of mind is healthy. Feelings of serenity and inner calm is healthy.
Eating organic and natural foods will certainly contribute to your health. So will drinking pure water, of which the world is in short supply. An exercise program will get those endorphins going.
But without peace of mind, good health is impossible. But we need all of the things just mentioned for overall good health.
What is the missing ingredient? Prayer, prayers, praying.
Om Peace Amen
Dear God/ess, Today is the 2 year anniversary of the Prayer Blog. This is the day that the 365 day Prayer Blogging Challenge began.
It is frankly amazing that this journey still continues.
I remember thinking that prayers are a universal language, not to be co-opted by any religion. Yet Christianity would have you believe that prayers are strictly in the domain of a belief in accepting Jesus Christ as your personal savior.
I never knew what that meant, and still don’t. What I do know is that the Gospel of Jesus was Love. Prayer is Love. And that falls into every spiritual philosophy on the planet.
Om Peace Amen
