God continues to bestow his mercy and grace on me. These extraordinary gifts have carried me through the untimely death of my husband and a cancer diagnosis a year later. He has done for me what I could not do for myself. A fuller meaning of life is the greatest gift he’s given me.
It demonstrates our connectivity. We are all human, we all make mistakes, we all have times of weakness. Showing vulnerability takes courage.
Such a poignant testimony to the power of gratitude. ❤️
Projecting negative outcomes in the future stunts positivity. I cannot put a ceiling on what God has in store for me. This question reminds me that on this wonderful journey, my path gets narrower, and my horizon gets bigger. What a way to live! 🙏
Connectivity inspires peace. When I isolate, self centered negative thoughts often occur. For example, traffic brings out the worst in me. When I shift the focus to “we all on this road are experiencing the same thing, all trying to get to jobs, appts, etc.”
It’s not all about ME! We are all in this together. What a great world we live in when we connect.
In all things good, for this is reflective of God’s handiwork in my life.
It is during my morning devotional time where I carve out time for meditation, where I am most able to be still and listen. It helps me to be more present throughout the day to hear my creator.
A shift in perspective will move me to a position of neutrality.
I am on an progressive journey on how to learn to be closer to spiritual freedom. It is a joyful journey of growth.
Keep it simple: always do the next right thing.
Honoring tenderness for me points to not being so hard on myself…a gentle reminder to put the bat down. Perfectionism is not a virtue, but a burden. Thank you for helping me realize this today.
One of my most cherished memories is the smell of my dear mother cooking tomatoes in the fall for winter canning. I can still see her in her apron in the kitchen I grew up. Thank you God for olfactory senses!
I invest in connecting with my higher power. The more time in connectivity results in peaceful existence among my fellows. Grounded in love is where spiritual growth lies for me.
Being mortal helps me realize everything is temporal. When my husband died my world stopped. Through much time and effort, I have gained a fuller meaning of life. Respecting the temporal has heightened for me, having endured the pain and magnitude of great loss.
I find much joy in the morning. A fresh start, special devotional time with my creator. With a candle burning and a hot cup of coffee, I take time for me. A special time to set my mind with positive direction for the day.
Oh my, I sure need help in this area. Impatience is my shortcoming. When I choose to wait impatiently, I’m robbing myself of the gifts in the present. I need to be focused on positive thoughts rather than sitting in judgement regarding the cause for the waiting.
Privilege to care for others, what a gift. We receive by giving. Thank you for the reminder Kevin.
What a special gift for your granddaughter. I’m touch in reading your reflection Zoe.
What a lovely memory. I too have experienced this from my mother. Thank you for helping me to recall this cherished blessing.
Without question, it has. Thank you Francine.
