Merry Christmas to everyone, God Bless
( being neighborly).
Now our friend and family are joining in the fight together- his and ours against Cancer- PLEASE lend your time and hand to a friend and neighbor. It has a ripple effect- I am so glad him and his family haved moved next door- Shhh ( I think we are going to become good and maybe possibly GREAT Friends). Isn't this just the way the times can still be- Oh and by the way Do you have a Cup of Sugar
As I forgive, I recognize God's goodness expressing in and around me.
Life lessons bring me closer to knowing the peace of Christ within my heart. When I experience a hurtful exchange with another person, I allow forgiveness to release me from the pain. Forgiving does not condone unacceptable behavior; it gives me permission to break free from the hold people or situations may have on me.
With compassion, I forgive myself for doing something I regret or for neglecting to do something I wish I had done. Through self-forgiveness, my capacity to forgive others increases. Judgment is released.
As I forgive, I gratefully accept the peace of Christ within and see the goodness of God expressing.
Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.--Luke 6:37

I bless my mother and all mothers around the world.
We are all born out of the energy of Divine Love. Like a million tiny seeds blown across the earth, each of us takes root to grow into a unique expression of the one Love that created us.
Whether the seed of my being landed on a soft fertile place or a rocky path, I was created out of Love and I am an expression of Love. I give thanks for the womb that gave me life and the love that supported my growth. My eyes are opened to see anew all the love I have received. Strong and gentle, liberating and supportive, love has nurtured my growth. Whether the mother who gave me these gifts of love is with me now or not, I send a blessing of loving gratitude to her today.
Your mother was like a vine in a vineyard ..., fruitful and full of branches. --Ezekiel 19:10
As I’m setting still, I listen to the Universal Love of God
I am in the presence of pure being. I am not alone.
I am not alone. I hold this thought in mind and feel comforted. The evidence of love begins to show. A ray of sunshine strikes a crystal and the rainbow of colors dances on my wall. A tiny bird comes near to sing its song just for me. In books and music, through the gentle touch and kindness of others, God speaks to me of love. What reassurance comes when I take time to listen for and experience that still small voice of God.
In the quiet place within my heart, I feel God's loving presence. No burden is mine to carry alone. With each breath I draw upon the infinite strength and peace of the Divine. I gently release any sorrow or worry weighing me down. Enfolded in the embrace of sweet Spirit I know that I am not alone.
Yet I am not alone because the Father is with me.--John 16:32
I am strong, positive and powerful.
Every person has a purpose. I may discover mine when I am troubled by a situation and feel called to be part of the solution. The path may not be perfectly clear; I may not know what action to take. Nevertheless, I begin right where I am. I trust my inner wisdom to show me the way.
Rather than worry about making a mistake, I pray and take one small step. I trust that God will place a lamp before my feet, guiding me as I go.
As I give of myself in sacred service, everything I need is provided. I joyfully do what is mine to do. My faith grows even deeper as I give from my abundance. As I step out in faith, I am strong, positive and powerful.
You see that faith was active along with his works.--James 2:22
