Our friends are our presents from God. They are our earthly Angels. They have come to protect and guide us through life. They have come to offer us unconditional love and acceptance, just as we are.
I share the wonder of friendship with as many as I can. Friends are like twinkling stars on a lonely night, adding light to the darkness of the night.
Some serve as the Moon or the Galaxy of the skies. They know when to appear for us. They can sense danger or trouble without us having to tell them about the situation. They just sense we need them and they show up ready to serve us in our every need.
Friends are the appetizer to a great meal. Friends feed us with pure love. They satisfy our every hunger for good wholesome fun and nourishment. Friends are like a fattening desert, tasty and just a little on the wild side.
Friends are like a cool drink on a hot summer day; refreshing our thirst with kindness and generosity; filling our bodies up with necessary liquids. Friends just know what and when to do what they do. Words are hardly ever needed because they can feel you, even from a distance.
I treasure friendships and friends. My friends are a reflection of who I am. My friends are of varying ages and ethnic backgrounds. My friends encompass the globe of life. Some I have know for a lifetime while others I am just beginning to share with. Either way they have chosen to show up in my life, it always feel good to reconnect with them. Has your heart stopped when you see a friend who has been absent from your life for a long time? Seeing them again is like a brisk breath of fresh air. All I want to do is embrace them with all the love I have for them.
Friends are JOY!! Friends are SPECIAL!! Friends are God’s GIFTS!!!
To think you did absolutely nothing to earn this day, it is purely a gift to you from God.
What will you do with this gift? Will you spread Peace, Joy, Love, Harmony, and Justice to everyone you encounter today? Will you live as though this may be your last day of life? Will you show Appreciation and Gratitude for this gift? What will you do and how will you use this day?
I will live this day to the fullest. I will shower others with complete acceptance and acknowledgement. I will show concern for the less fortunate and the disadvantaged. I give a hand up to those who may be experiencing discomfort in their lives. I give all that I have spiritually to those around me. In this attitude my words and actions are encouraging and supportive. My life reflects my knowingness of the Goodness and Oneness of God. I extend Grace and Mercy to all. I demonstrate Love at its highest level which is unconditional.
A new day has been given to me. I did not nor could I have worked hard enough to gain this day. It is by virtue of The Supreme Spirit that I am able to participate in this day of life and living.
I give thanks to The Most High. I bow in respect and honor to DAO. I acknowledge Allah as the sustainer of my life. I submit to the teachings of Buddha. I pay tribute to the Ascended Masters and to all Ancestors. I am a grateful steward of life this day.
The humans on my path this day will know I honor and treasure them for just showing up along with me. God is expressed through each person I exchange a word or a smile with this day.
This new day is a welcomed and treasured gift. I joyously explore this day with the wonder of a small child, seeing the beauty in everything and I am amazed by its presence.
In the presence of others, do you take the high road of authenticity or gauge how you show up dependent upon on how the others appear? This is sometimes referred to as peer pressure. And you thought that only applied to children, especially teenagers. Well it does not and guess what, the same small children you are saying this to be watching you and how you show up in the company of others.
Do not compromise your values for the sake of belonging. Isn’t that what we tell our children? Be a leader not a follower, and there we go following the gang because everyone is doing it. As we get older our gang is broader and is often influenced by what we see on television and what we hear in the music. The community at large becomes our gang, the people we hang out with. In this process do you still honor your truth? Or are you following the crowds, the same crowd we warn our children about?
Actions are always much louder than our words. Our children are watching. How we show up! Are your actions consistent with your values? How do you show up? Is the environment the one who sets the tone of what is fashionable and the latest trend? Are your actions consistent with your words?
Is honesty an admirable value? Yet you lie to others often, in the company of your children? What do you think they are learning, that it is okay to lie some of the time, because they hear you doing it? Well if this is how you show up, please do not chastise the children for repeating what you are teaching. Do you holler, scream and curse others when you are upset? But insist upon spanking the child that does the same as you?
How do you show up for yourself? Do you compromise because you feel intimidated by titles or status? Regardless of the position in life we are each the same, a child of God.
Respect yourself and show up as the real you all the time!
Recently a friend called and as we shared I sensed she wanted or needed something that I could not give to her. She was focused on the physical world of outcomes and was seeking validation that a God truly exists and was active in her life. As I listened, I prayed for the right words or ideas to share with her.
She was excited to tell me of a tree that appeared to be dying had come back to life after she tendered it with lots and lots of love and care. She explained to me how she talked gentle words of life and healing to the tree. She watered the tree with love and appreciation. After only three short days, she saw New Life on her tree! Excited beyond words and truly overjoyed, she was incredibly amazed by the outcome.
She continued with what appeared to be challenges in her life, in the way of finances. There just seemed to be too much month left after her money ran out. I could sympathize with her and added that many people go through this experience and I was among the many folks. I reminded her that the only remedy for this situation would be her belief in the power of Faith and God. She listened but still needed more solace than what I had offered up to this point. Suddenly a beautiful butterfly flew by her as we talked. She was making her way outside to sit with her tree. Next she told me of the many birds singing to her.
God had answered my prayer with these words to give to her. I told her that she needed quiet time with God. To allow God time to talk to her. My words were, ‘God is giving you all kinds of signs but you are not paying attention to them. God has blessed your tree with New Life. God gave you a butterfly to remind you of transformation and metamorphosis. Finally God asked the birds to sing to you and the birds represent freedom.” I ended with “God is answering you directly; you must listen to what God is telling you.” With that said, her battery went dead on her portable phone and the call ended!!!
What signs are God giving you to answer your concerns???
