DAILY WORD - AUTUMN

Nature truly has blessed me this year. What looked like an early Autumn has turned into a lasting, colourful paradise. The air has been so warm, the sky has been so clear, and the sunshine has been brightening everything with its golden glow. Most of all the wonderful red and crimson leaves have been staying on their trees day after day and week after week giving their delight to the world. These leaves are usually the first to appear and the first to fall in the Autumns here. We usually only get a few weeks of their beauty before they are gone. This year, though, their joyous colours have lasted and lasted.


As glorious and beautiful as these Autumn leaves are though, there is still something even more beautiful and even more glorious. This something is our own bright shining souls and our own wonderful lives. We don’t have to wait until the last few weeks of our lives either to shine our greatest colours of love and joy. We can shine them brilliantly for years and years and make our entire lives an Autumn of delight.



At any age we can realize that God loves us so very much and wants us to live our lives in goodness, beauty, peace, and happiness. At any age we can see that the more love, joy, and oneness with God that we choose and share in this world the brighter and more special our lives become. At any age we can become the Autumn angels we were meant to be and spend the rest of our days blessing the world with the glorious colours of our loving hearts, joyous souls, and light filled lives.


I wish all of you an early Autumn in your lives then. I wish all of you an Autumn that lasts for years and years and touches countless souls with its brilliance, love, and joy. I wish all of you an Autumn that makes God smile and the angels sing. I wish all of you an Autumn that colours your souls for all eternity.

DAILY WORD - HEALING

Divine life infuses every cell of my being.




My body is a physical manifestation of the Divine. I give thanks for all that it does, sending blessings from my head to my toes. Affirming health and life energizes and engages divine life within each cell.

During times of meditation, I reflect on the spiritual life energy coursing through my body. Divine energy courses through my veins with every beat of my heart.

Like a light being lit from within, I feel the warm glow radiating outward through me. Every cell, organ, and system that comprises the physical me is being renewed and restored by this healing life energy. Right now, right where I am, I am whole and complete.



They … brought all who were sick to him, and begged him that they might touch even the fringe of his cloak; and all who touched it were healed.—Matthew 14:35, 36

DAILY WORD - FREE

Giving and receiving love frees me from negativity.




After his release, Nelson Mandela embraced his freedom, giving thanks for the blessings of life. He became an open vessel of acceptance, embracing the love of others and returning that love to all with whom he came in contact.

Perhaps that is the true meaning of freedom—giving and receiving love. I embrace that concept today. If I feel unjustly treated, I forgive and free myself from bitterness. Love frees me from resentments and opens me to happier, more fulfilling experiences and relationships. I am free and encouraged to change my focus to one of inclusion rather than exclusion.

I am free to live in harmony. As I give love, I receive love, and I am reminded of the words of Paul: “... love is the fulfilling of the law.”



Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.—Romans 13:10

DAILY WORD - INTERNATIONAL WORLD PEACE DAY

My harmonious actions inspire peace among others.




I am not alone. I am part of the worldwide community, and it is up to me to create peace and spread love and kindness.

I look for ways to make a difference in my home, my community, and my environment. I take every opportunity to show compassion and understanding. My actions have a direct impact on those around me and in the world.

The love of God within me is my guide in all that I do. Passing along positive thoughts and actions creates a ripple effect that expands to encompass the world. These deeds will eventually come full circle to bless me and my world in a multitude of ways.

As I continue to practice love and kindness and express peace and love, my harmonious actions inspire peace among others.



Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication.—Ephesians 6:18

DAILY WORD - COMFORT ZONE

God is my source for peace and comfort.




Living life fully may mean that there are times when I invite experiences that pull me out of my comfort zone. I may be moving into a new adventure in my life or working through relationship issues. I could be making changes at work or facing health or financial difficulties. Whatever I face, I do not become anxious.

Instead, I turn within and open myself—mind, body, spirit—to the uplifting, ever-present wisdom of God. I know, regardless of my circumstances, that God’s reassurance and love stay with me every step of the way. I am open to the clear and continuous guidance and enlightenment of Spirit. I know what to do and when to do it.

I find peace and comfort in God.



By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us.—Luke 1:78

DAILY WORD - SHARE IT FORWARD

I am God’s love in expression.




A spirit of giving is one of God’s greatest gifts for it is God’s spirit of love expressing through me. I express my gratitude for my own blessings by “paying” my blessings forward.

I share love and positive thoughts with a gentle touch, an encouraging smile. I give love freely as opportunities present themselves. I speak words of life and healing to everyone I meet. I may not know their individual need, but Spirit does.

Freely and without hesitation, I offer myself as a vessel through which God blesses others. I am grateful for each opportunity God gives me to be God’s love in expression. Through paying my blessings forward, I am abundantly blessed in return.



The measure you give will be the measure you get.—Matthew 7:2

DAILY WORD - MEANING OF LIFE

I am a child of God, living a life of meaning and purpose.




Humankind has continually questioned the meaning of life. Joseph Campbell summed it up when he said, “The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning.”

Today I feel grateful to be alive, to be on the journey called life. I open my physical eyes to the beauty around me—the trees, the sun, the flowers, the people I meet. And I open my spiritual eyes to God, knowing that I am a child of God, on a divinely directed path of good—a unique and personal path. I don’t spend time worrying about what to do—I just embrace the day and all that it has in store for me. I open my eyes to the blessings of God, grateful to be alive!



The Lord will open for you his rich storehouse, the heavens, to give the rain of your land in its season and to bless all your undertakings.—Deuteronomy 28:12
