(Prayers for France tonight and all those affected by violence!!!)

When I don’t feel close to my Higher Power it’s usually because I have stepped away. He did not move – I did. Prayer and meditation are but two ways of communing with the God of my understanding. Sometimes, I simply “talk”, if I am facing problems or challenges. Having faith means that I accept whatever is presented to me, on a daily basis. It also means that I give up the reins of trying to control my life, and practice patience and learn the art of waiting. Everything does not happen the instant I think of it, it’s all done in time. I hear the words “I am being prepared” quite often, and have come to understand that it means I have behavior lessons to learn, that I might then be able to follow the directions of my Higher Power, as I stretch towards a “higher purpose.” Obedience and discipline have not been my guide posts, but in recent weeks these are lessons to learn.

  2. Great, great reminders.
    My experience has been that we can’t truy love others, or ourselves, in a spiritual sense, until we have experienced such love ourselves.
    And that is just what happened when I dragged my denial ridden, self centred, unaware carcass into the rooms. I unknowingly began to absorb unconditional, forgiving love from a bunch of alcoholic strangers.
    And then one day I began to return it.
    And then I found out I felt the same way about myself.
    Grateful for the Gift

  3. Top of the Friday morning family,
    Comforting / uplifting shares today!
    – And the only due/fee is a chip and a chair.
    Trust: either God is everything or else He is nothing.
    Guilt: makes us run away from the light.
    Conviction: makes us run to the light.

    Its a good day to wish others a good day.
