Oh I Got Plenty of Somin’, and Somins’ Got Plenty for Me

Oh I Got Plenty of Somin’, and Somins’ Got Plenty for Me

Do you remember the song from “Porgy and Bess” called “I Got Plenty ONuttin”? The song goes on to say, and “nuttin’s got plenty for me.”

I was just thinking what a miserable outlook for a any character to have.

My job, should I choose to take it (very Mission Impossible-esque), is to always find the best way to look at life. When nuttin comes my way, it’s time for me to make somin’ out of it. Right?

I’ll give you an example. Every year in August when the kids are just getting back to school, I have one or two weeks when people just don’t book sessions. I usually make 50% of my usual income.

I don’t get fearful I’m going to be poor. I simply know that people are busy in transition. The same thing happens the week before Christmas.

Do I use those weeks to go into a slump and sing “I got plenty O nuttin’?”

Oh no, this August I spent almost the entire two weeks working on my website and doing some taxes and completing some business I don’t generally have time to do, when I had unusual breaks in time. And then there is marketing that falls under that same category. I don’t usually have time to do follow-ups as I should. So, I wrote some letters to some old clients that were much needed.

At Christmas time I do my end of the year taxes every year at the same time. I’m usually the first person to submit my taxes to my accountant every year. It’s about a ten-hour job, and I spread it out over a couple days.

There is absolutely no reason to fret when something stands in your way. Life doesn’t have roadblocks! Life has detours. Most of the time those detours lead you to paths you would have never taken—with people you would have never met—had the road not been closed.

Bless the good and the perceived bad in your life. As people often say, “It’s all Good.” If you believe in a God that does all things for the good for those who God created, then you have to believe there is a reason for you to be just where you are—when you are there!

The Now is perfectly beautiful. The now may mean you need me more, or I need you more. That, too, is okay. We are all in this together.

How Does Prayer Work?

How Does Prayer Work?

In my life I’ve often wondered if I’m led to pray when someone needs prayer, or if someone needing prayer leads me to pray. If either of these scenarios makes a difference, why would a God who knows all, sees all, creates all, need my prayers to change the course of action on earth?

These are big questions for a big world.

As everything, I take my thoughts to a quiet place and contemplate for answers. From this place of peace I write.

“Prayer is not a begging, prayer is not an earnest asking, prayer is not a demand for God to do anything different than what is planned as the best for humanity of an individual.

“Prayer is, in fact, a way to connect you to the whole. Prayer is a way for you to understand sickness and disaster. It is a way for you to make peace within your heart. It is not a way to change God’s mind.

“Prayer is a conversation or a meditation with the holiest part of your being. Amediation, if you will, with the best part of the best of you.”

When someone experiences healing from prayer, this is manifestation of the power of the whole thinking as a whole in harmony with Good. When someone doesn’t experience healing in the same situation, it is the power of the whole helping a soul cross over to a heavenly existence and out of the human existence.

Jesus found his Oneness with God. He asked in His heart what was to be. And expressed what was to be through the truest power of belief. He created what was real and spirit and made it matter. He was the ultimate prayer warrior. He taught us to pray.

“Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven.”

Jesus saw from his connection to God in prayer with heavenly Father what was in heaven and helped it express on earth.
