Seeing the GOOD
Are you a glass-half-full person, or do you live your life looking for the next tragedy to strike? It can be easy to dismiss the good we see in our lives because we’re too busy being on the lookout for the negative. God wants us to be obedient to him and sometimes his blessings areContinue reading “Seeing the GOOD”
Open to OUR Spiritual Power
Our spiritual power is enhanced with each blessing we give. And as our spiritual power is enhanced, life’s trials are fewer.

It is not a Race
Today when I S-L-O-W down I am free and open to all the blessings that are meant just for me. Frantic and panic are old familiar friends. It’s time to kick them out from Our house.
Expectations are like girdles. We probably should have discarded them years ago.
Full attention to the person sent to me will offer me exactly what I need today. My inner guide has beckoned them. I can be alert, expect solutions, and celebrate the wonder of it all.
Problems give us the opportunity to learn something. If we don’t get the message the first time around, we get another chance, and another, and another. When we miss out on the learning each time the whack upside the head gets harder. Obstacles are gifts for learning. We never really know what we have learnedContinue reading “Problems”
