May the light of the One

That illumines all souls

Illuminate our path throughout this new year.

May that light enable us all to love and be loved

And to grow that love

Into the World the One knows

We are capable of growing.

Happy Hanukkah

Merry Christmas

Happy Chinese New Year

Happy Kwanzaa

Happy Ramadan


Today and always.

May we come together as one human race

Through this holiday season

And every day of 2020 and beyond

Holding one another of all races, religions and sexual preferences

As one great God-given family.

With love as our guide.

Kindness is Still Alive

BeBe 1

Kindness still lives in Roanoke

The place I now live with its gracious townsfolk.

The majority strive to live and be as good

As God would want them to be: One beautiful neighborhood.

Baskets of welcome on my doorstep

Glorious holiday lights shining through my windows with pep.

I never thought I’d find a place as sweet

As Roanoke, Virginia, the place God directed me — what a treat!

Make 2020 The Year of Love

Dad with granddaughter Rose2

2019 has been heartbreaking on so many levels, it’s been hard to endure

For children of Holocaust survivors like myself witnessing hatred of Jews and Israel rising like some newfound couture.

It seems no matter how hard we work

To show the world we love our neighbors as ourselves and we’ll never shirk

Our commitment to this beautiful world

To be kind and loving to Mother Earth and all God’s creatures, animal and man unfurled.

My prayer for 2020 is that this ridiculous hate propaganda machine

Is stopped in its tracks so love can envelope the Earth again with a glowing sheen.

And God can smile again at His/Her human children

Knowing they’re doing what they were sent here to do: Become all-lovin’.

Bringing Your Hopes to Life

Tammy Santa Rosa Lake Headshot 3

You know where you need to grow

What your heart and mind needs to sow

To make your dreams come alive

And soar through the rest of this, your Earthly life.

Just start with a calendar

An accomplishment-a-day’s a good start for sure.

If you can visualize it, you will see

You can turn it into your reality.

Prayer for Ailing Children


Dear God, Creator of Heaven and Earth,

Today we sit alongside this beautiful, ailing child.

Although we recognize that when we come into this world, you lay before each of us our life’s mission,

Today we ask that you expand this child’s mission and tenure with us.

In doing so, we ask that you please bring complete healing of body and soul to _____________.

While we recognize that only You know what is best for this child; we ask that You make this perfect healing the best and right path for this beautiful being.

For hearing us fully today,

For listening to our hearts as we beseech thee with all that we are,

We thank You.

For being with us and with this child throughout this journey and into the next,

We thank You.

For all this, for that which we are unaware, and for the Light and Love that we recognize You surround us and enfold us with daily,

We thank You,

And together we say:

For my Hospice Patients and their Families

april 2nd flower on the job.jpg

Dear God,

I pray with all my heart

That You be with my patients until they pass and restart

Life again beyond their body

Up with you, the one and only Almighty.

Please, Dear Lord, guide them there

With all the love they need — and tender care.

Comfort them when they feel scared.

Let them know You’re always near

That death seems final, but it really isn’t.

That it’s simply moving from here to Heaven Unlimited.

And when they get there, please envelope them

With eternal love, friends and kin.

For these things I pray I thank You now

Because only You can make this happen

Only You know how.
