What is MY word, you might ask?  I really like Bliss, Bliss, Blissful!  That to me covers it all.  Although in my prayer or meditation time, or during some of my daily activities, I may use any of the above words!!!

Q. What is YOUR WORD? Please EMAIL me at *


Some say, “Your Word is your Bond.”  Florence Scovel Shinn says, “Your Word is Your Wand, so man has power to change an unhappy condition by waving over it the wand of his word.”

“Man’s word is his wand filled with magic and power! Florence S. Shinn

In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.  ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Jesus Christ emphasized the power of the word; “By thy words thou shalt be justified and by thy words thou shalt be condemned,” and “death and life are in the power of the tongue.”  And “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set your free.”

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” ~ Jesus Christ

Fear, doubt, anxiety, anger, resentment pull down the cells of the body, shock the nervous system and are the causes of disease and disaster.  Our thoughts and our words matter in our lives!


A woman at sea awoke in the morning and heard the fog horns blowing.  A dense fog had settled on the ocean with no apparent signs of clearing.  She immediately spoke the word, “There are no fogs in Divine Mind, so let the fog be lifted!”  I give thanks for the sun! (By Florence S Shinn).

What we think, we become.  All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts, we make the world.  – The Buddha

Many people have been “brainwashed” by untrue words that became untrue thoughts, such as “You are not smart, or beautiful, or talented or you are a dummy; you will never make anything of yourself” or worse.  These statements then live in the mind and can make one’s life unfulfilled, fear based and unhappy.  This person can be very hard on themselves if they continue to believe these limiting falsehoods.

It is a never-ending journey to shape our lives into the positive, uplifting, smiling, brilliant person we really are.  We can begin with reframing the WORDS we use about ourselves and our life and our world.  We can do it with loving support and continual reminders…I use stickee notes with my words on them around my home.  And choose your friends and relationships wisely to support your growing, uplifting journey.

LOVE is the ANSWER no matter the question!

butterful-yellow  About the Author:

In the summer of 2018 I started “raising” caterpillars and Butterflies in my backyard (see “Backyard” Blog) and so I learned about the *BUTTERFLY EFFECT: The idea that one butterfly could eventually have a far-reaching ripple effect; the idea that small causes may have large effects in general.

I want my Blog and any place I am, to be a place where I try my best to bring peace, love and smiles; where I have my little positive influence on any person’s attitude and that the world will be a better place.  I used to think if I could help just one person, that would be wonderful. Through these past 25+ years I have been in the presence of so many amazing people to give and receive from.  I am humbled, honored and grateful.
