ACCEPT ONLY MIRACLES

“Accept the miracle… … of healing, and it will go forth because of what it is. It is its nature to extend itself the instant it is born. And it is born the instant it is offered and received.” A Course In Miracles

“I will walk in the light of my own forgiveness today and see miracles of healing.”

We don’t have to fix the world and the calamity and chaos we see out there, but we can pray for healing and peace and forgiveness for the greater world as we practice kindness and forgiveness within our own hearts and in our own small world. Forgiveness is energy and it lives in us, our gift from God. He instilled it in us for our use in keeping our lives peaceful and for healing our experiences along with our relationships. When we forgive others and ourselves, we open our minds and hearts for another, better way of being. This better way sends ripples of loving energy from us to others and through others to more others. These ripples are miracles.

Forgiveness is contagious as laughter is contagious as joy is contagious as kindness is contagious and as peace is contagious. Instead of spreading disease and anger and fear, let us spread Love and Peace and Joy through small acts and thoughts and words of forgiveness and kindness. Let us be kind to ourselves and see that kindness manifest into healing in our lives. Sometimes all we can do for someone else is pray for peace for them. And if that’s the best we can do, then that is what we must do. And that best is far greater than we know for it puts us on the path as miracle workers for God.

A GENTLE WALK IN PEACE

“The peace of God is shining in me now.” A Course In Miracles

“I will leave fear behind today and walk in gentle peace.”

Leaving fear behind is a journey and takes patience, determination and perseverence. We can practice this daily and moment by moment, by simply looking straight at what disturbs our peace, and with a gentle, knowing smile, understand that the Universe has something better in mind for us than this.

May we walk gently and in peace this day knowing that we are blessed and we can bless with our tiny willingness to forgive all things and be at peace.

WHY NOT ME?

“All good things are mine, because God intended them for me.” A Course In Miracles

 “To all good things, I say, “Why not me?”

How often have we heard or asked the question, Why me?   Usually in reference to drama or illness or pain of some sort. What if, for this new year, we turned that question and the answer around and filled our minds and hearts with loving expectations instead of possible bad news.

It would look something like this:

Healthy relationships filled with love and laughter.
WHY NOT ME?

Communication in which understanding is sought and quickly found.
WHY NOT ME?

The perfect job doing just what I love.
WHY NOT ME?

Time and space for myself whenever I need it.
WHY NOT ME?

Having and being a spouse/partner who forgives our mistakes and values our strengths.
WHY NOT ME?

A positive loving, giving, serving experience here in the world.
WHY NOT ME?

All my questions answered by a loving Source that knows me perfectly.
WHY NOT ME?

Health and well being for my body, my spirit, my emotions.
WHY NOT ME?

Only good news in the world every single day.
WHY NOT ME?

Safety and protection for me and my loved ones.
WHY NOT ME?

Enough of everything for me, for mine and for all the world.
WHY NOT ME?

An experience where forgiveness, kindness, and empathy are the order of the day.
WHY NOT ME?

An open mind and an open heart willing to allow the Divine Universe to govern my life.
WHY NOT ME?

A world of harmony and balance in nature and in the heart of everyone.
WHY NOT ME?

Every day filled with miracles of grace and beauty and wonder.
WHY NOT ME?

Peace and Love and Joy in the world now, beginning with me.
WHY NOT ME?

TWO WORLDS

“Let me remember what my purpose is today.  I cannot see two worlds.”A Course In Miracles

“Give me the strength to see only God’s world.”

Two Worlds

One belongs to fear.

The other one to God.

We cannot hate and love at once.  When hate is in our heart, love disappears.  When love is felt, hate does not exist.  What Child of God can choose to see themselves as fear-filled and separate from their Creator and their brothers and sisters through dissension when another choice, the choice of Oneness is offered them?

A song sung in harmony with many voices rising together is much more powerful than a single voice lamenting all alone. One hand cannot clap.  One hand cannot join.  But many voices and many hands joined in harmony can change the world’s complexion and bring light to all eyes and beautiful sound to every ear.

Our power is in our Oneness.  Our power is not in fighting for what we think is right, but in joining together, and lifting our minds and hearts to God and letting Him decide.  God will not show us anything in the world. He will not say one Child of God is right and another is wrong. He will not take sides with His children.  Instead He will show us the world transformed. Transformed by kindness and compassion. Transformed by Love. He will show us our opinions are not the truth of us. Our Oneness is.

He will show us how stillness brings joy and how silence allows us to hear another Voice and a better way of being in the world. The things we fight for will fade away into nothingness when we let His Voice speak through us and for us.  And all will be at peace with the results of His Plan in place of ours.

Anger and fear are not conducive to correcting a wounded heart and a suffering world.  They only make things worse.  True correction comes through an open mind and quiet spirit where God’s Voice can lead us on our path to healing through kindness and through gentleness, through forgiveness and through love. That is strength.  That is power.  That is truth.  That is all there really is. 

One World.  God’s World. That’s the one we want.

A HOLY ENCOUNTER

“Every encounter is a holy encounter.” A Course In Miracles.

“I will see every encounter as blessed today.”

A holy relationship is nothing more than
People opening their hearts and sharing a moment.

Laughter to the point of tears
And tears to the point of laughter.

Or a quiet smile, a fleeting glance,
A compassionate thought,
A silent blessing,
A spontaneous helping hand.

A simple act of kindness can transform a
A stranger into a dear brother or sister
Who may only pass by in a fleeting encounter
Or who may stay close from this moment on.

Let’s be grateful for all of our
Holy and loving relationships today;

Those that last an instant and 
Those that are forever.

And then let’s look around and see who
We can elevate from our acquaintance list
To our holy relationship list.

Who is on our enemy list that can be corrected
To our holy list through forgiveness and 
Surrendering our anger and our judgment 
To God who loves us all?

A holy relationship is nothing more than
People opening their hearts and sharing a moment

With each other in God’s name; aloud or only in our mind.

UNWRAPPING TRUTH

“What God created limitless is free.”  ACIM

“I will offer gifts of forgiveness, peace and joy to everyone today.”

If we put a gift into a box, even if we wrap it beautifully and tie it with a colorful bow, it has no meaning unless we give it to someone.  And then it has little meaning unless they unwrap it, see it and use it.  This is how we set it free from its limiting containment in a box.

So it is with our thoughts. Even if we know in our minds that we are God’s creations and His Holy Children, but don’t live that way, then we and all others cannot receive the gift of what we know deep inside of us, that God’s Love is real and all else is an illusion.

The gift of our true understanding cannot shine through when it is wrapped in doubt and fear and tied with ribbons of darkness and worry, no matter how colorfully or poetically we describe them.

We can pray for peace and health and happiness, safety and abundance for the world, but if we speak and think and act without peace or kindness, the gift of our prayers cannot be seen or used. As with any gift, it is only useful when we unwrap it. We need to let our light shine through so our judgments and attacks thoughts and victim thinking can be lifted from our minds and transformed and shared as gifts of Love and Joy for all. And we need to do this with God as our Guide.

In loving silence God continues unceasingly to gift us with His Truth.  Each moment is a Holy Instant and a miracle of joining with God and each other just waiting to be unwrapped.

“Let every voice but God’s be still in me.”  ACIM

I CHANGE MY MIND

 “We cannot change the world. 
We can only change our mind about the world.” 
A Course In Miracles

“I will have the courage to change my mind today.”

Many of us speak of changing our mind as something negative. We call it flip flopping. We call it wishy washy. We call it weak.  We couldn’t be more mistaken.

To change our mind is to allow sanity to replace insanity. 
To change our mind is to let go of stubborn misperceptions.
To change our mind is to allow growth.
To change our mind is to let healing happen.

We cannot grow unless we are willing to change our mind.

The only way to change the world
Is to change our mind about the world.

That is powerful.

There is great courage and strength in the willingness to recognize we have been mistaken and then to change our mind. And God will help us do it.

POLISH THE RUST; MELT THE ICE

“Healing is God’s form of communication in this world, and the only one He accepts.” A Course In Miracles

Drip. Drop. Water dripping down a rusty drain pipe, slowly and relentlessly. It freezes at the other end as temperatures plummet. The water is our truth. The rusty drain pipe is our ancient mindset. The plummeting temperatures cause the frozen ice which represent our blocks to peace.

It’s time to clear the rust from our old thinking. It’s time to melt the ice from our hearts and open ourselves to the peace which belongs to us. An open mind and a willing heart allow miracles to work through our lives where before, we often saw only a world of fear and pain with little higher purpose and ourselves as powerless to change a thing. Rust can be deceiving as it hides the shining light of truth beneath. But it’s only on the surface and is harmless when we take a moment to look deeper. One way to clear the rust is to polish it with the oil of God’s truth and light. One way to melt an icy heart is to blow a warm and healing breeze across it. This we can do by choosing God instead of fear in all things.

With our minds and hearts open to a better way, we are able to understand that we are not victims at all, but powerful beings through which healing can happen if we allow our higher spirit place to be in charge of rusty drain pipes and frozen hearts. Our higher spirit is God’s Love within us where healing always happens whenever we are ready for it.

Opening our minds to a better way, God’s way, will help us to polish our rusty thoughts and melt our frozen thinking and turn our experiences around. This new year is a perfect time to choose again. Every day and in each moment, we need only choose again.

Love instead of fear. 
Forgiveness instead of judgment. 
Kindness instead of attack. 
Compassion instead of intolerance. 
God instead of rust and ice.

LOVE THE FRIGHTENED CHILD

“… replace darkness with light and fear with love.” A Course In Miracles

Let’s envision fear (anxiety, depression, anger, sadness, etc.) as a child in need of love.  We lift the frightened child into our heart and soothe it with a gentle lullaby. The child is having a nightmare. We must be kind and patient with our young and frightened self. As we offer love and reassurance to the child inside us, the nightmare is lifted up and disappears into the light of our own truth. Confusion and terror are calmed by comfort and reassurance.

By sending thoughts of love and kindness to our frightened selves calm and quiet confidence rises within us. As our loving muscle strengthens, our fear muscle weakens. Fear cannot fight love or argue with it because love simply is and can’t fight back.  Fear needs a fight in order to survive. It needs validation; something to hold onto. Fear cannot cling to love or argue with it. It simply slips away like a shadow in the night fades silently into light.

In lifting fear up to Love we have gifted ourselves with a power we never knew we possessed. That is the power to be happy in the face of fear. Just as we would comfort any frightened child, we can bring our own spirit back to peace with a simple smile, a gentle hug and a loving thought.   “I seek but what belongs to me in truth.  God’s gifts of joy and peace are all I want.” A Course In Miracles.

Next time we feel fear in any form, let’s smile at our self and say, “I love you.” And feel the transformation from fear into peace begin, one loving thought and moment at a time.

THIS YEAR OF KINDNESS

“Today I can go past all fear, and be restored to love and holiness and peace. Today I am redeemed, and born anew into a world of mercy and of care; of loving kindness and the peace of God.”  A Course In Miracles

Today I will only be  kind to myself and everyone.

Let’s practice kindness on each other in this new year. We can’t heal the world, but we can be instrumental in healing our life. We can heal our thoughts and through our healed thoughts heal our relationships.

Our exercise is this. Next time we have an encounter with someone close to us, our spouse or partner, our children, our siblings and parents, our friends and co-workers let’s watch how we behave? Do we react to the fears of others with more fear? Or do we react with kindness and compassion recognizing that the acts and words of others are only a reflection of their state of mind at a given moment and not them at all. Let’s stand back and observe, not how others are being with us, but how we are being with them.

It is difficult and almost impossible sometimes to be calm and kind when someone is lashing out at us or behaving angrily. So in that moment the best we can do is say silently to God, “ I want no part of this.” Then quietly excuse ourselves and find a quiet place to breathe. The act of not reacting is a very powerful tool for peace. It has often been touted as an act of weakness, but there is nothing more powerful than choosing not to be a part of the problem, but instead to allow ourselves to be Guided by a Higher Force, our greater Source and let God tell us how to react instead of deciding for ourselves. It is much weaker to lash back instinctively than to take the higher ground and let God choose for us how we should be or what we should do in any given situation.

Then when things are quieter and calmer and we are feeling stronger we can begin our practice of kindness and compassion. Maybe not at first with the person we feel attacked by, but begin simpler. Think kind thoughts of others that we are more peaceful with. We can call our parents and say, “I love you.” for no apparent reason.

We can get down on the floor and play with our children and let our voices join in joyous laughter. We can hug our spouse or partner and say, “I am grateful for you.” We can call our friend and tell them, “I’m so glad you are in my life.” To our co-worker, we can say, “It’s really great working with you.” For ourselves we can choose, “I am happy and so blessed.”

If we practice small gestures and simple, honest words and acts of kindness when our life is relatively calm, we can strengthen that muscle in us that is designed to be an instrument of peace in the world. Smile more often for no reason. Laugh out loud at the Murphy’s Laws of life. Laughing at ourselves and with others is a powerful tool for seeing the world from a less serious and doom clouded vision. And remember to be kind.  Always, always be kind.

WE DO NOT WALK ALONE

“You do not walk alone. God’s angels hover near and all about. His Love surrounds you, and of this be sure; that He will never leave you comfortless.” A Course In Miracles.

“I will see myself comforted and surrounded by God’s Love today.”

When we look at the world, what do we see? All the pain, and suffering? Or the truth, that God is real and everything and everyone can be lifted into His Light for healing? Do we join the world in its misery by adding our negative energy of fear and judgment to the chaos? Or can we choose a better way?

What if we join forces with God by sending kind and loving thoughts into the world every chance we get? What if we lay our fears down and pray, “God help us.” What if we go about our day dispensing kindness and compassion to everyone we meet? What if we become part of the solution by smiling gently at anyone who needs a smile and offering a happy greeting to friends and strangers alike? What if we are part of the solution, by choosing to withhold judgment of what we see and hear on the news and instead send a healing prayer to everyone involved?

Love is energy that heals. Fear is energy that keeps the world in darkness. We have the capacity for both. We can get angry and righteous and choose to make the world the problem of those we see as guilty. Or we can take responsibility for our part in the mess by remembering our anger and our fear are just as powerful for keeping the world in pain as those who are actually acting out the drama and the violence. We may not want to believe that our thoughts are that powerful. After all we’re not doing anything to hurt anyone. But when we consider that we are creations of the greatest Power of all, is it too farfetched to believe that we are contributing to the chaos by keeping our thoughts in chaos? In a lesser way, perhaps, but contributors nonetheless. And there are billions of us joining forces in judgment and in fear.

The answer is forgiveness. We must, one person at a time, forgive ourselves for our mistakes and ask God to heal us so we can be instruments of peace instead of pain. It seems almost impossible to withhold our judgments and be free of ego fear. The natural thing seems to be to judge the world and to believe we know what everyone else should be doing differently. This desire to rule through our egos instead of allowing God’s Love in is very powerful and entrenched into our way of thinking and being in the world.

And so we cannot do it alone. God is always with us to help us change our thoughts whenever we open our mind and heart and turn to Him. For every fear thought there is a corresponding Love thought. We must be vigilant in watching how we react and respond to the world and those in our lives. And every time we find ourselves responding with negativity, we can stop ourselves even in mid sentence or mid thought and go somewhere quiet and say, “God, I give my mistaken thoughts to you. Please help me to be your channel and your tool for healing in the world.” Or “God, please help me to see this through Your Eyes so I can change my mind.”

Working through Love instead of fear is not easy. But it’s necessary if we really want a better world. Sometimes, we can only pray, “God help me.” And yet that is the most powerful prayer there is.

We are not alone. Powerful Guides walk with us. Let’s take Their hands and allow ourselves to be lifted above the fray where we can truly be a healer for God in the world. And when we find ourselves in the middle of the mess again, which we will, let’s take God’s hand again. And then again. And then again.

Every experience and every moment is another opportunity to choose again. And to remember the powerful truth – that we are not alone. God and His Angels walk with us and His will for us is only peace and happiness and nothing else. When we turn to God for help we are simply aligning our will with His. And there is nothing more powerful that we can do for the healing of the world.

THANK YOU, GOD

“… love cannot be far behind a grateful heart and thankful mind …” A Course In Miracles

 “I will just say Thank you God today – for everything.” 

Any changes for the better must come from our minds first and this takes us back to our own miraculous selves. We have the power within our own minds to change our experiences by believing in something greater than this world. As we lift our thinking from the darkness of an uncertain world, to the Light and the certainty of God we will see that all our problems have been solved and everything we need has been provided and we can rest in Him positive that all is well.

“I accept God’s Will for happiness for me and I accept it as my purpose now.” A Course In Miracles

And for this we say, “Thank you God.”

NEW DAY; NEW LIFE; NEW WORLD

“It is a new era, in which a new world is born. Be confident that on this day there is a new beginning.” A Course In Miracles

 “I will see this world as brand new today.”

Our willingness for peace does not happen into a void and then what? It’s not, “I have peace now. Is this all there is?” No, our willingness for something better opens doors and windows to wondrous moments, amazing experiences, delightful opportunities, holy relationships and glorious miracles. It changes our world as we change our mind about the world.

We have joined with God and His Divine Universe when we agreed to give Him our fears and allowed our minds and hearts to be open to our own Holy Healing. So now we can have expectations for abundance and beauty and joy beyond anything we could have imagined on our own.

It’s a new day. It’s a new you. It’s a new me. It’s a new life. It’s a whole new world!

RESOLUTION – BE HAPPY!

“I place my trust in the strength of God.” A Course In Miracles

“I will count my blessings today.”

In this new year let’s make resolutions to:

Smile more
Laugh out loud
Love ourselves.
Value Life.
Value our brothers’ and sisters’ lives.
See God’s Love and Light in everyone.

Let’s let joy be free as we forgive and surrender everything that disturbs our peace. Let’s celebrate with our family and friends. Let’s count our blessings, not our grievances. Let’s go outside and play in the snow or dance in the rain. Let’s bless the sun that shines upon our world today and even the clouds that hide the sun for a moment or two. Let’s allow Love to govern our lives and every relationship.

Let’s place our trust, not in the world, but in God. So we really have only one resolution – to be happy.  And now we are living God’s will for us.

SILENT SONG; SECRET DANCE

“For no one hears the song of Heaven and
remains without a voice that adds …
… its power to the song” A Course In Miracles

“I offer to the world today a smile, a touch, a wink, a laugh, a wave.”

Strike a chord in your brother
And find the hidden melody in you.

There is a song without lyrics
That the heart sings loud and clear.

It is heard with the inner ear
And shared through loving thoughts.

There is no need to carry a tune.
There is no instrument to learn.

And with it comes a secret dance choreographed by love.

A smile. A touch. A wink. A laugh. A wave.

A hand shake.
A warm hug 
A sign of peace. 
Two thumbs up.
A bowed head.

A kind thought.

A song sung in silence
Is the most powerful sound there is.

A dance danced in secret 
Can bring a smile to every face.

WE ARE OKAY

“Then the world is harmless in your sight. A Course In Miracles

“I will practice being harmless  today.”

Health and well being are when we see ourselves as more than a body. When an understanding comes over us that we are okay just as we are. No strings attached. No special conditions imposed. Just pure acceptance. This is the energy of Love. This is the power of being harmless.

Harmlessness is when we choose to be kind instead of hurtful to another. No matter how small the act, our willingness to be harmless offers a healing experience for us and for others. It is the essence of harmlessness when nothing we think or do or say disturbs us or anyone else.  True honesty and harmlessness is when our most loving thoughts are in perfect alignment with our actions and our words.  

Helpfulness happens whenever we see someone in need and offer a hand, a kind word, an encouraging smile. Whenever we hear someone’s cry for help and then answer it with a prayer or a blessing on their behalf. Whenever we withhold judgment and choose love instead.  This is the decision for Love; the decision to be harmless.

It is only in being harmless to our brothers and sisters, to our planet and to ourselves that we can be truly helpful in healing the world.  It is the harmless ones joining their power that will heal the world. And we know for sure, we are okay.

FULL CIRCLE

“A happy outcome to all things is sure.” A Course In Miracles

As our day begins peace fills us.”  

In the gently rising light of the early morning, before the world stirs, we awaken quietly and let calm and loving thoughts fill our minds.  We breathe in and out deeply and slowly asking for all that we want for ourselves and the world. In this way our hearts and minds are an open channel for all that is holy and healing for the world from the first moment of our day.  And with this decision that we make in the early light of the first hour of the day, we become a joyous learner of a new and better way to be; for ourselves and through our example, for our brothers and our sisters all as well.

Though it may appear so, we aren’t alone with our isolated thoughts.  Every decision we make, every thought we think, affects us and others as well.  As dawn breaks and morning light flows out upon the earth, our first decision for the day will be a prayer:

“The light has come.  I am healed and I can heal.
The light has come. I am saved and I can save.
The light has come.  I am at peace and I bring peace with me wherever I go.”  A Course In Miracles

And as our day ends …

In the quiet darkness as night softly blankets our world, and gentle fingers of sleep soothe our brows and close our eyes, again we do our quiet breathing.  Just before we fall asleep, we remember all the blessings in our lives and all the good things about the world and we make a decision to be grateful as we forgive everything and everyone that disturbs us even a little. And because our gratitude and grace come from the holy love of a creation of God, the Divine Universe decrees that all is well and we’re at peace.

And again, as the new day begins, in the gently rising light before the world stirs our peace continues, as we breathe, calmly and deeply, in and out. And so we come full circle.

A CHRISTMAS STORY

“The sign of Christmas is a star, a light in darkness. See it not outside yourself, but shining in the Heaven within …” A Course In Miracles

PEACE ON EARTH

There was a small star in a black sea of sky whose light was very dim. Dark thoughts, heavy sadness, and crushing guilt from earth made it an overwhelming challenge for the little star to keeps its light alive. It continued to try valiantly, but the effort was exhausting.

One night just before its fading glow was extinguished for good, the star heard a sound. It listened closely and it heard it again. Sweet and gentle, and ever so lovely, the sound penetrated the heavy mist of fear that filled the world. It was the voices of a small boy and girl singing a lovely little hymn to each other in a small and dingy room with ice crystals clinging to the inside walls. The brother and sister had curled themselves up together in a thin and threadbare blanket. They were home alone. Home was a small apartment with no heat, but they didn’t seem to notice as their voices rose in harmony with one another. If anyone would have seen them, they would have been amazed by their shining eyes and happy smiles.

They had nothing in the worlds’ terms, but in their eyes they had everything. They had each other.

The star focused on the innocence and love that flowed from the hearts and into the song of these two children. And as it did so, its dim light began to brighten. Then softly and from a distance, the star heard more voices joining these and then more and more. Each voice belonged to a child. The star continued to focus only on the voices until it could hear nothing, but children singing in different languages, in different keys with different melodies that somehow blended and harmonized with each other and with the two original children in the cold apartment. The love that circled the world from the hearts of the children gave power and strength to the star until its light shone clear and filled the sky. Soon the dark sea of night disappeared into the light. The light from one small star.

You are the star. 
You are the children.
You are the song. 

You are the light. 
You are the innocence. 
You are the love.

Listen to your heart, focus on your song, see only your light and you will realize

Peace On Earth

Have a blessed Christmas, everyone!

TREE OF TRUTH

“When truth has come it harbors in its wings the gift of perfect constancy, and love which does not falter in the face of pain, but looks beyond it, steadily and sure. Here is the gift of healing …” A Course In Miracles

Go inside your mind and see a tree, glorious and tall, its branches raised majestically, its trunk spanning the world. This tree has no leaves and yet it is full and beautifully abundant with not a bare spot to be seen. It cannot perish or change its hues which already are all the colors of the Universe.  Nor can what grows upon it ever be diminished or forgotten.

Go closer and lean your weight against it. Rest in its shade. Look up into its branches and see what fills them.  Do you recognize its fruit?  They are all the miracles, large and small, that belong to you.  See them fastened to the tree like lovely ornaments polished to a perfect sheen.

Every loving thought you’ve ever had is hanging there, blessed and saved for all eternity. There are your miracles of kind acts preserved for you in holy purity. The branches of the tree bear all the memories of each time your heart was opened to another, as are all the times your eyes have seen the truth of someone else; the innocence within their soul. As well, your gentleness and grace and every tear you’ve wiped from someone’s face or shed in loving sympathy for them. Every child you’ve ever held and every hand you’ve ever clasped as you helped a brother or a sister up and back upon their path. Every time you have forgiven yourself or someone else is a light upon the tree. Each time you trusted God instead of fear is a gift that He holds dear and keeps in place for you within the branches of this tree.

Every time you celebrated life instead of death is suspended there. Also every dark and painful moment you chose another way, opening your mind to embrace the holy healing of happy joy and laughter. Every prayer you’ve ever prayed where you put God’s will ahead of yours and every time that you grew still on His behalf are all firmly on the tree.

No matter what mistakes you make they are nothing in the face of all your miracles held fast upon God’s Tree of Truth where they will stay forever, shining their holy, healing light upon the earth. These words cannot convey how precious are your miracles that God has saved for you.  And when the time should come that you look back upon your life, be sure that these and only these are all that you and He will see.

THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS

“The sign of Christmas is a star, a light in darkness. See it not outside yourself, but shining in the Heaven within …” A Course In Miracles 

We are the awe we feel on a star-filled night.
We are the beauty of a snow-filled woods.

We are the heart of a lovely song.
We are the picture in the frame;
The pinnacle of every mountain that we’ve climbed.
We are the joy in simple pleasures that we share.

We are weightless.
We are timeless.

We are a gift to the world and the world is a gift to us.
We are a ribbon of light that shines through darkness.

We are peace eternal and unchanging.
We are not the things of the world, 
But the spirit that runs it.

We are the awe
We are the beauty
We are the heart
We are the picture
We are the pinacle
We are the joy

Every moment of each day
May you find Christmas
