Purpose in Appreciation

Taste and see the Goodness I place all around you! Get out and enjoy the fresh air, soaking in the sights and sounds I put near to enthrall you. There is purpose even in the simple act of appreciation. I want you to notice things like beauty, smell, and taste. Open your eyes to all I place before you today. Feel My love for you in the giving and receiving of these gifts. Point it out to others. Too often, people pass quickly by spectacular things, – so hurried and preoccupied with non-edifying distractions. Come to Me to show off the bouquet of delights you pick out from My offerings, allowing Me to share joy with you as we experience and notice things together. See how this eases your soul.

Allow Your Playful Side

I am working behind the scenes so you can lighten up a bit on yourself. Let joy bubble up from beneath the surface by allowing your playful side to peek through. Go ahead – laugh a little at yourself and your circumstances. This will help ease any strain caused by them otherwise. Remind yourself that what matters most is to live with love. Being able to shrug off minor irritations will help shift the weight to a more balanced perspective. You don’t have to live under all that pressure. After all, -this, too, shall pass.

Excited Observation

I call you to simplicity as a gift filled with My Peace. Find quiet contentment by taking a walk or just enjoying the birds.  Use excited observation with eyes open to My wonder. By enhancing your ability to be aware, you’ll find a vision for loveliness that allows healing. Stress will dissipate as you hone this skill of being present and fully aware in the moment.

Cut Back on Guilt and Resentment

You are anxious and worried about many things. Only one thing is required: following Me and My loving guidance in your life. Stop worrying so much about what others will think. Cut back on guilt and resentment. Examine your “obligatory” commitments and see what you can release if it is no longer life-giving. Try getting involved joyfully by doing the things you love and that come naturally to you. It’s OK to hand over responsibilities to others who may be waiting for a chance to become more involved. Service for My Good was never meant to be such a burden. I love seeing a cheerful giver and I long for you to be at peace.

Your Life is Worth Living Well

You are Mine. You are therefore always treasured, needed, and loved!  Let that sink in. How might you go about your day differently if you embraced this truth of belonging and being unconditionally loved? Yes, My beloved, – I want you here on this earth for a reason and a purpose today. I also want you to enjoy the day’s experiences. Look for My Light and take time to smile inwardly at Me when you find it. Your life is worth living well.

Joy In Your Own Backyard

You don’t have to travel or get away to experience joy and pleasure. Sometimes I provide that right in your own backyard. Accept My invitation to look around and find things to be grateful for. Simple things: color, light, and sounds can lift your spirit. Be reassured that I am all around you and attending to the things you have been stressing about so you can let go of them. Breathe in My fresh air and be refreshed by My gentle Presence.

Nothing to Prove

You have nothing to prove today. You are and can be a beacon of Light to every room you enter, so walk with confidence knowing you are truly loved and valued. Don’t worry about putting on a show for others. People find your presence comforting and enjoyable, so smile inwardly and outwardly at this truth. Embrace and love your whole self; no more awkward shyness is needed. It’s good to love and be at peace with yourself. Lead others by example, walking confidently in My truth.

Sit Still

It’s a gift to truly sit still, absorbing sights and sounds in the present moment. You can allow memories to surface, or thoughts and imagined scenarios for future events to rise and be acknowledged, but try to return to awareness of the present. Now, picture Me sitting with you, – noticing the same things that catch your attention. Smile at our connectedness that occurs without words. I am oh-so-familiar with your every thought and reaction. Tenderly, turn your gaze to Me, sensing My all-consuming love for you. Push busy-ness aside and see what joy I can stir up for you as you spend time with Me like this. Let Me re-energize you by restoring balance and rest in your life.

Waves of Anxiety or Hurt

Despite the ebbs and tides of your emotions, I am the Constant in your life. Look to Me for safety, shelter, and calming. If a wave of anxiety or hurt comes over you, remember that the tide will surely pull it back out to sea again, – away from you. It will not stay in place for long. Look for what is left for you to appreciate and observe in the tide pools. See new discoveries about yourself that hold true even after the worries of life recede. You’ll find playfulness, color, and new life darting about with joyful surprises in store.

Notice Things

Open the shades and peer outside. Take note of the stillness and calm of the morning. Like a blanket of snow, I cover the earth, – hovering over plants and grass, and blossoms awaiting their time in the spring. But I’m not just “out there”. I am inside, – in each home and each person, – including you. I’m the One peering out, giving you eyes that see and moments to capture in your mind. Let your aim today be to notice things with curiosity and delight. See how this lifts your Spirit and your mood. Be elevated by what you take in as you discover all I’ve laid out before you.
