Each Day

I hope all of you Mother’s had a WONDERFUL DAY!! I know I DID!
Each Day a New Beginning
May 10

To wait for someone else, or to expect someone else to make my life richer, or fuller, or more satisfying, puts me in a constant state of suspension; and I miss all those moments that pass. They never come back to be experienced again.
—Kathleen Tierney Crilly

The steps we are taking today will never again be taken in exactly the same way. The thoughts we are thinking are fresh, never to be repeated. All that these moments offer will never pass our way again.

We each have to grab our own happiness, create our own richness through experiences. We may share what we capture with loved ones, but like us, they too must search their own avenues for the satisfaction that lasts. We can neither give happiness to another, like a gift, nor expect it in return.

The fullness of life we all long for is the natural byproduct of living every moment as fully as possible. Our higher power will never direct us into waters too deep. When we have willingly turned our lives and our wills over, we’ll find an abundance of the rich, the full, the satisfying. Faith in God answers all questions, solves all problems.

  1. I can’t seem to find anything to say this morning.
    I can’t seem to find anything to pray this morning.

    Perhaps I should just pray The Lord’s Prayer.

    Perhaps I should just go back and concentrate on the opening three lines of this morning’s reflection.

    Perhaps I should take note of moroseness, moodiness, melancholia and prevailing despondency. Perhaps I should recognize this poor spirit; perhaps I should pray for mercy.

    Perhaps I should wake Daisy Mae and associate with her.
    Is she always a purveyor of mercy?

    Should I plant some flowers?
    Should I get about being positive and creative? – Thank you Leo.

  2. Hmmmmm. I embrace everyday. Life is short and I am grateful to wake up every morning so that I can discover what God has in store for me today!
    Sometimes, I try to be sad, but my spirit tells me otherwise. I accept it and I feel wonderful. I can’t make myself feel sad…..Hmmmmmmm.

  3. …just pray The Lord’s Prayer…is something, thanks to Emmet Fox’s wee tome The Sermon on the Mount, that I find myself repeating many, many times each day or at night when restless.
    Whether approached from the classically Christian or new age spiritual or secularly humanist, it slows me, warms me and guides me to behaviours which resonate with what you told me works for you.
    I feel peaceful, knowing I am part of, and have a part in, The Great Reality.
    Grateful for the Gift

  4. Top of the morning family,
    Someone is always there to share life’s action items with me- each day. Step Two is a reinforcement with the light of the spirit. This grace lights my being the power to change and evolve. This power is and has always been right behind my belly button. The life I desire is happening right now. right at this moment. Now is when anything can occur. Now is when anything can change.
    Emmet Fox’s tome is rock steady. Sometimes, just watching Forrest Gump works. The parallels of the movie and AA are amazing. “it happens”!
    peace / progress

  5. We can depend on those members of any group who have gone all out for the pro gram. They come to meetings.
    We can depend on this 24 for your shares experience, & hope. I especially like hope, I like to hear the experience and how we all came out of our me program into our we program.
    Blessings, kt
