You are needed, you are wanted, you are loved.

 

 

Blessings to you and your family.


~ I can't take credit for writing these, but I think they are nice and peaceful to reflect upon. I hope you enjoy them.

To worship God you must go beyond words to speak with your heart.

 

 

You can mouth the words of a prayer all day long and just waste your time, unless you also speak with your heart. And to speak with your heart means to embody first. If you pray for love, be loving. If you pray for wealth, be generous. If you pray for health, practice health yourself. What is your favorite prayer? How can you begin to embody it?

You always have one last resort.

 

When nothing else works, surrender to God, and let your faith carry you through.

At any moment, you can choose peace.

 

You can choose inner peace, you can choose peace between friends, you can choose peace between enemies, and you can choose peace on the planet.

Love won't run out.

 

In moments when you feel like you have given and given until there is no more of yourself to give, remember that love won't run out. God has an infinite amount of love for you and for you to pass on to others. Even at times when the well seems dry, God can send a flood. Let the flood of love wash over you and then drench everyone around you.

When an impossible must happen, put it on God's to-do list.

 

Well, if you can't make it happen, and no one else can, there is only thing left to do ...  finally look up and trust in God to make it right.

Working together is good.

 

We are meant to support one another in this world. Let go of the feeling that you have to do everything alone. Ask someone if they want to join you.

Faith is exactly what it takes to get through uncertainty.

 

 

Faith is not necessary when you know how things are going to work out,  that's knowledge. It's in the time of unknowing that having faith is what sees you through to the other side. Faith is what gives you strength. Faith is that light in your heart that keeps on shining even when it's all darkness outside. Now is the time to keep that faith alive!

You do not see things as they are. You see them as you are.

 

When you look, you see reflections of your being. When you listen, you hear echoes of yourself. If you don't like something about what you see and hear, no point in smashing the mirror, change who you are becoming.

There are just two directions in life, to shrink or to grow.

 

Every challenge is God's offer for you to grow, to enlarge your soul. You can take God's offer and become more, or you can shrink back, shy away and become less.

There are countless ways to love God.

 

Love God through love for your parents. Love God through love for your spouse. Love God through love for your children. Love God through love for your friends. Love God through love for your country. For God is in all these and much, infinitely, more.

There are no small miracles.

 

A miracle is a miracle. Don't forget to notice them! As you begin to notice miracles, you will find that they are all around. Love and blessings abound!

Creativity is good for the soul.

 

Creativity is when your spirit gets a chance to play and express itself. So whether art, dance, cooking, making music, writing, or creating a garden, let yourself go! Create!

Every moment is an opportunity for you to be happy.

 

 

You know how sometimes it seems that life is just throwing you one curved ball after another? Well, guess what, - you have a great way to respond! - you can use every opportunity, every single one, to be happy. Don't just take a shower - feel into and receive pleasure from the water on your skin. Don't just walk on the street - enjoy the fragrances of the trees and the flowers on your way. Don't just drive your car - sing karaoke to your favorite radio station.

There is no need to obsess over a decision.

 

God has more in store for us than we can ever predict, and what we fear are bad choices frequently turn out for the best, because our hidden aspirations know better where we are going than our rational minds.

Suffering is just as important as well-being.

 

Like a tree accepts all seasons, accept your suffering with grace. Good days, like sunshine, will help you bloom and prosper. Hard days, like storms, will make you strong and resilient.

It's time to remove everything unessential in your life.

Pairing down to essentials frees up energy and brings simplicity that are necessary for happiness.

It's good to remember.

 

 

Think about the times that you felt close to God, when love and joy pulsed through your veins. Dwell on these times, especially when life isn't easy and trouble seems to compete for your attention. Any situation can be improved if you remember to remember God.

When you look into the heavens, it is good to remember God.

 

But God also resides in all the creations of this Earth. Wherever you look, you are seeing a part of God. Tread gently. Speak with reverence. God is everywhere.

Both men and women are called to be nurturing.

 

Don't be afraid to nurture your spouse or your children. Don't be reluctant to nurture your friends. And remember also that we are called to nurture and help sustain this Earth. God gave us stewardship of this Earth. It is our job to take care of it.
