THOUGHTS ✿

A friend once told me:
“I need to be careful – what I choose to dwell on.
So very often, what I focus on, comes true.”

What does one say in response to such a
powerful proclamation? Not much.
After she spoke, we sat quietly.
Her words searching for a place to settle
in our consciousness. . .
I’m not sure they ever have.

I remember those words every time
my thoughts become a bit obsessive.
How much power do our minds really have
over our lives?
Quite a bit, I’m afraid.

As you fall into a peaceful slumber tonight;
allow thoughts of peace and possibility fill you.
As your body rests – your mind will dream! ♡

THANK YOU ✿

THANK YOU ♡

There are 86,400 seconds in a day.
Taking 2 of them to say “Thank You” to someone will be one of the greatest gifts you can give.

Showing our gratitude isn’t just a social formality.
It is an act of kindness all its own.

I say: ‘THANK YOU’ today to you. . . .
just for taking the time to read this.
Hope you have a wonderful day! ♡

STAINED GLASS LIGHT ✞

STAINED GLASS LIGHT ✞

The brilliant kaleidoscope of color
is reflecting throughout the church.
Magical sparkly colors are blanketing
over everything and everyone inside.
Tilting my face up to the light fills me with awe and wonder.
Am I shining too? Is God’s love filling my soul?
I feel weightless.
Closing my eyes – I feel as though I am floating. ✞

Have faith that God’s light has power.
He can and will illuminate your soul
if you believe that he can.
If you take that first step with confidence,
he will show you the way.
Faith + Light + Confidence + Determination = Triumph ♡

MISTAKE ✿

MISTAKE ✿

What have I done?
What should I do?
What is going to happen now?

The inner turmoil following a regrettable decision –
✑ disappointing, haunting, agonizing.
Take in a long deep breath.
Own up to your mistake.
Make it right if you can.
Learn from it.
Promise yourself to never cross that line again.
Then. . . . . forgive yourself. ♡

“You can never make a mistake twice.
The second time – is a choice.”

GOOD THINGS ARE COMING ✿

GOOD THINGS ARE COMING

It is often painful and many times – confusing.
Why me?
Why now?
Where do I go from here?

Allow the chips to fall.
Accept its finality.
Give yourself time to breath, then. . . . .
listen to the signs;
they will present themselves when you least expect them.

There may be an inexplainable meeting,
a strange comment or an unexpected opportunity.
There it will lie, within the commotion of your day,
the directions to your next chapter.

Listen carefully.
These messages are often subtle little changes in your routine; but they are most definitely there.
Trust in the universe and trust in God.
When you have faith – faith will guide you to
exactly where you were meant to be. ♡

note: This has happened to me several times in my life. When I felt as though I couldn’t breath another breath, I gave myself a chance to heal and then I began to pray. The more I prayed the clearer my new path became and as I began to believe in the signs, everything became so obvious to me. “Yes!” “This is where I am supposed to be.” Each discovery brought more peace into my life; and calm into my soul.

As you wake on this new day,
before the weight of the world descends upon you,
take a moment to give thanks;
for your breath, your awareness, your life.
This is a new day;
one more opportunity to make things work -
to make things right.
These precious moments are YOUR time
to breath and project a positive energy
into this new day. ♡

GOD’S INTENTIONS ✞

GOD’S INTENTIONS ✞

I remember a time when I felt like a failure.
My life made no sense and
my heart was broken in two -
I was lost and scared.

Then one day I decided to trust in God.
When that happened,
I realized that those hurtful experiences
were his way of redirecting me.

Just like so many other people,
I was on the wrong path.
I was so engrossed in my own selfish desires,
I was missing all the little clues he had
placed throughout my journey.

I was pushing left while all along,
I was supposed to be going right.
God knew he needed to do something big and loud
to get my attention. . . . .
and that’s exactly what he did.

Fortunately, for me. . . .I listened.
When I finally stepped away and trusted in him,
a weight was lifted from me and I realized
there was something much bigger and better
planned for me.

And there was. . . . . ♡

Now, when ever anything strange or
inexplainable happens to me,
I step back and listen.
A message?
Oh yes,. . . .Always. ✞
