Patience

Take your needle, my child, and work at your pattern; it will come out a rose by and by. Life is life that; one stitch at a time taken patiently, and the pattern will come out all right, like embroidery.
~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Little Things

“We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.”
~Marian Wright-Edelman

Today’s Affirmation

I take advantage of each opportunity to spread love and joy.

Today’s Meditation

Dear God,

Instead of looking at the bigger challenges we face and wondering,
“What can I do to help?” we choose to be proactive and co-create a kinder world with You.
We do everything we can as individuals and as a group to spread love in our world.
Help us see the many opportunities we have each day to be instruments of change.
Guide our collected intentions and actions so that we are receptive and open to a new field of possibility for everyone.
There are many little things we can do: a smile shared, a kind word spoken, a compassionate ear, warm hugs, a little money to buy food for someone who is hungry, a telephone call to one who is lonely.
Help us live in a state of love with each other.
Help us to pray with our hands as well as our minds.
Multiply and magnify our efforts and fill us with courage and conviction.
Thank You, God!
Amen

The Nature of Children

As little children, we are completely authentic. We never pretend to be what we are not. Our tendency is to play and explore, to live in the moment, to enjoy life.
Nobody teaches us to be that way; we are born that way.This is our true nature before we learn to speak.
~Don Miguel Ruiz

Today’s Affirmation

I am glad to be alive, to be where I am and to be who I am.

Today’s Meditation

Just exactly as you are, God loves you. All you need to do is to touch into that God part, the God-center within your heart. Because God created you, God sustains you. God lives within you as your ever-present help, your inner light, your sure compass, your sound guide. In this moment, realize that because God loves you, God is capable of taking care of your every need, just as you are. Open up to the divine resources that dwell within you. Catch the sense that you are so beloved of God that here is nothing holding you back from the heart-fountain of God that is pouring forth this wonderful energy of love. Feel it!

Purpose

“If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain:
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.”
~Emily Dickinson

My passion is freedom and my purpose is love.

With my help, You transform the world.
Thank You!
And so it is.
Amen

Humility

“Humility brings peace for it does not claim that you must rule the universe, nor judge all things as you would have them be.”
~The Song of Prayer

Today’s Affirmation

I accept the will of God as my own.

Today’s Meditation

Dear God,

I am not sure what to pray for today.
Sometimes, I have thought that I knew what was best in a given situation;
only to have what I prayed for turn out to be only a further complication.
So in this moment, I pray for Your will for me and for our world.
I do not know what the solutions are to my own challenges or the bigger
issues we face as a nation and as a species on this planet.
I seek an understanding of Your will and the faith to live it out.
I pray for wisdom to notice where You are leading me.
I ask for the courage to let go and immerse myself in You.
As I release this prayer to the workings of Spirit, I am content to let it be.
Amen
