I don’t usually post on Thursdays, but I thought I’d re-share something I posted ten years ago when I first started blogging. It was purposely meant for this Thursday every year. It’s not about religion, but about someone special to me.
Just a Coincidence . . .
Today’s post was inspired by L. Marie’s blog from her post Day Brightener.
What was her day brightener?
A beautiful bouquet of vibrant daisies she bought for herself.
Buying flowers for herself sparked a memory of mine from years ago.
Pray As If
Pray as if
Pray as if you’ve already received
Last year I wrote about sending out an intention to the Universe of something that you would like to occur in your life (or pray), and then trust it will happen. One example I shared before was the synchronicity of our move back home.
Not only does the Universe/God answer our call/prayer in due time, but sometimes we receive answers we aren’t even looking for.
I don’t even know where to begin with this blog post, because there is so much running through my mind that I could say.
So, what do you think of when you hear the words “sweet spot?”
A Peaceful Reading
From the publication DailyWord.
Sometimes our minds may fix on lack or insufficiency – “I don’t have enough”; “There isn’t enough time”; “That idea is impractical.” But, we need not limit our vision of what is possible. Just because something was not a part of our past does not mean it cannot be part of our future.
Once again, I thought I’d share a little of what I need to learn on the internet today, just in case anyone else might find it helpful too.
If only we could comfort those effected by the tornado.
Below is a reading (variation) from the magazine DailyWord.
A Place (I Am)
Heed the Call of Christmas
Is Christmas about the hottest new toy,
or is it about love and joy?
Is Christmas about which house has the most lights,
or is it about reaching new spiritual heights?
Is Christmas about the most beautiful tree,
or is it about showing our inner light’s jubilee?
Show me the Way
Freak out, Worry, Fret, Stress, Agonize
I’m mad at myself. Okay, maybe not mad, more like disappointed in myself.
When I was away in Chicago a few weeks ago, two difficult things happened. In order to spare you the details, let’s just say they could’ve been long lasting difficulties. They scared me, and my mind went directly to the worst case scenario. I freaked out. I worried. I fretted. I stressed. I agonized. If you can think of any other synonyms, I did those too.
I tried to get a hold of myself and went off to a quiet place to clear my head and pray. Do you know what happened? Something came over me … a warm, calming comfort that told me everything was going to be okay. Continue reading “Freak out, Worry, Fret, Stress, Agonize”
I woke up on my birthday last Wednesday feeling pretty lousy. Not only was my age the reason, but one of my many ailments had acted up. Just a reminder of what’s to come in the years ahead of me.
Every morning I read a prayer book, so to speak, as it’s more like daily affirmations. Each reading has the day’s date on it. After I read it, I do a brief time of prayer and meditation. I’d like to share with you what it said on my birthday date. Timing, Divine Providence, synchronicity, or whatever you want to call it, usually comes through when we need It.
Carry on …
… my wayward son
There’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more.
Here are the lyrics to the song I referred to in my Wednesday post, my favorite of all time by the band Kansas. The spirituality of the lyrics and power in the music, has always moved me. Anyone else care to share their favorites of all time in a comment below?
Yes, I wept for our world today.
I pray and meditate every morning to start my day off with a clear head. This morning I did a little something different. I fell to the floor in tears to beseech Divine guidance for not only me, but the world. What is it we need to do to be at peace? What is it we need to do to keep the liberty that our Creator gave us?
Originally I had a more light-hearted blog planned for today, but I feel a darkness hovering over our world that I can’t shake. I felt a strong pull to express my concerns.
It’s been said that the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same things over and over while expecting different results. This is what humanity seems to do … keep repeating history. Are we humans insane?
Can you say control-freak?
I can best describe a control-freak with a line from the television show King of the Hill.
Characters name: Peggy Hill
Scene description: Peggy does something manipulative to get her husband, Hank’s attention on a specific matter. Hank tells her not to manipulate the situation again.
Peggy’s response: Believe me, I prayed on it, Hank. And God told me “Don’t do it.” But you know what? I knew better! Continue reading “Can you say control-freak?”
