Be Still And Give Thanks!

  Gratitude, being the lynchpin for a happy life, is the official celebration kicking off this holiday season. We should take a page out of the Pilgrims playbook. They understood the power of gratitude. If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice. ~Meister Eckhart  Those two potent words, “thank you” should be carried around uppermost in our minds and hearts as we go about our daily routines. We sometimes fill our lives with chatter and we end up missing so much of what really matters. This holiday season, let’s stop talking and be very, very quiet and stand in silent wonder at the vastness and goodness of God. Be still and watch God our Father, in the continuing act of creating new things before our very eyes: this morning’s flowers, this evening’s sunset, tiny new infants and ourselves – still here, the universe still growing, all manner of good things continuing to tumble forth from creative, caring hands. Be still and give thanks! Be still and listen to God’s gentle presence, always with us, as we fulfill our mission on earth. The Lord silently guiding and challenging, comforting and encouraging, showing us the way and helping us to walk in it. Be still and give thanks!  Be still and wallow in God’s Loving-Presence here on earth. Leaning on the Almighty’s help through a friendly gesture. Acknowledging God’s generosity through a helping hand. Reflecting on the difficult lessons learned at the feet of your teachers. Be still and give thanks!  And finally, be still and remember what the Lord has told us... read more

We Can Only Imagine!

I’ve never looked to Dennis the Menace for spiritual inspiration, but in this cartoon, he nails it! Dennis is with his friend looking up at the starry night sky, pointing upward he ponders, “If heaven is that pretty on the bottom, think how it must look on TOP!”. We all have our ideas about what heaven is like, but we have been told in Corinthians “”No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” We know that something good is ahead of us. Wayne Dyer helps put it into perspective for us. He explains that we are really spiritual beings having a temporal experience. So this life is not who we really are. Our situations, for better or worse, do not define who we REALLY are. I do believe that we carry around a little bit of heaven within us to remind us every once in a while of our Godly indwelling. Our Divine flame burns within. When something or someone literally takes our breath away, we get a glimpse of heaven, remembering we are ”awe-some” beings just passing through. We feel this connection when we experience seeing the vastness of the ocean for the very first time, or when we hold a new born child, or being touched by the glorious colors and miracle of the daily sunrise and sunset. This life is supposed to be an “experience”, a chance for us to learn while we search for communion with ourDivine essence. We are on our journey back “home”….back to heaven. We must find some awe, some piece... read more

 Get the Most Out of Your Day

 “This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use, as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever. In its place is something you left behind. Let it be something good.”- Unknown This is our challenge each day. We don’t want to live our lives waiting for the “real thing” to come along. No matter what holds us back, whether it is fear of failure, fear of success, doubt, hesitation or procrastination, it’s time to say yes to “life”. Sometimes lots of folks never get it. They never understand how life really works, even at the simplest levels. Here is the crucial question, “Do you know what your life is all about?” We can find out that answer by checking how we are living. Are we living like people who know for sure that a loving God is walking at their side? Let’s see: -Have we stopped wasting our time worrying? -Do we welcome life with a happy heart” Are we glad to wake up in the morning? -Do we see how gifted and special we are? At least sometimes, does seeing our own giftedness just make us want to smile? – Do we have hearts so full of thankfulness that we instinctively work at helping others be as happy as we are? If that’s the way we are living, then we understand how to use each day. It means that we’ve been... read more
