I Am No Fool (& neither are YOU)

It is April Fools Day and I want to declare in front of God and everybody that I am Eva and I am a FOOL for LOVE! (“Hi Eva!!” I hear my AA friends murmuring from the audience). I have not posted here for many months, which of course does not mean I haven’t been writing, extending love to my thoughts, life, schedule, and strengthening my own health. I was reminded via Facebook’s “On This Day” that today marks my third Bloggaversary of Twelvemonth of Self Love. I read my one-year Bloggaversary post and am reminded what a big deal it was for me to embark upon my Twelvemonth of extending love to...

A Course of Love

Late last year, smack dab in the middle of the wedding hubbub I came across a breathtaking spiritual text I couldn’t get enough of.  It was as if I had found a new translation of the Bible, I had never dared believe existed.  This text, these words, this book straight from the heart of Jesus into my own (bedraggled, exhausted, hurried) heart was indeed the salvation I had asked for.  Because I was so desperate for any and all help to stretch time, bring eternity into our midst and because I was grateful to sit (even if only for a moment) and just listen, I was smitten from the first...

100 Reasons Why Love Is Enough

This is a love letter to you my precious Ones.  Breathe in the truth about yourself today, the day we remind ourselves of Love in all forms. Perhaps read this aloud to your loved one, sweetheart, self, or the person sitting next to you on the plane. Be not afraid of the truth of your dear Self. Happy Valentine’s Day indeed. 100 Reasons Why Love Is Enough I am love. God is love. Love is God. I am Christ. Christ is God. I am God. Love is who & what & how I am. God is all-that-I-am.

“The January Nap: A Case for Self Love”

“The January Nap:  A Case for Self Love”

Through the months of visitors, year end business and the preparation for my daughter’s wedding when I thought I would expire trying to do seventeen-things-at-once I would promise myself this “I will nap the entire month of January”.  I regularly began my days at 4am just to get some quiet time before the day erupted in activity and the dance of decision, what held me together was the lure of giving myself January to recover, revive and recalibrate. Holy Spirit provided some handy reminders in the form of a drippy head cold, low blood pressure (I had to halt my pilates...

A Mantra for One

A Mantra for One

My commitment to daily Twelvemonth postings concluded in April of this year and, not surprisingly, life has continued unabated to the point that I look back in utter wonder at my accomplishment of 365 days of daily blog postings. Here is what I am learning about myself three months out since that mammoth commitment of extending love to my fears, my self and my experience and blogging about this daily: Fears continue (as do occasional overwhelm, crossness & self-forgetting) but it is so much easier to recognize them so I can immediately decide to extend love in whatever color or form is...

The Self Discipline of Desire

The Self Discipline of Desire

I was speaking to a friend recently who praised the self discipline of my having blogged daily for a year.  I was a bit taken aback as it didn’t feel like self discipline at all.  I write and extend love to my thoughts because I want to. Afterwards, this phrase floated into view:  the self discipline of desire.  I took it into my quiet time this morning to ask Holy Spirit more about this. Me:  Holy Spirit, please tell me more about this “self discipline of desire”. What does it mean and how does it enrich my path and purpose? HS:  Precious One, Dearest, take time to dally...
