It’s a Beautiful Day!

Remember that song by U2?  “It ‘s a Beautiful Day…  dont’ let it slip away!”  I heard it this morning,  after  hearing a radio announcer say it’s not only getting colder than ever, but it’s one of the most depressing days of the year (because people go back to work and school after the holidays).  Really?  

What I see is the sun shining strongly, after a night of yes cold, but beautiful flakes of snow and stars… and what is not beautiful and magical about that?

There has never been another January 6, 2014 – ever.  

And there has never been another You.

Don’t get me wrong, I was tempted too. It’s easy to crawl back into bed and say “no, no, no!….” and try to avoid the whole thing, to stay in the dark a little longer before facing the day.  But the moment I did, my job was to spread happiness to every soul in my family (including my dog, who didn’t need it, but I did ;)).  To walk my daughter to school and school her on how her attitude will turn her day around (and it did).  And to return home thinking, what can I do today to make this the brightest, happiest, most grateful day to be alive?

For one, I love talking to you.  It’s true! I love to write, and for those who think this is hard for me, you are gladly mistaken.  I love it!  I do it because it feels good, and because it’s God gift to me, and to you.  So, on this most happy and beautiful of days, what did God bless you with? What did he give you to give?  Is it your smile, your sense of humour? Your talent at work? Your love of home and family? Whatever it is, it is yours, it is beautiful, and it is good. Give!

Thank you for being who you are, for living a life that is beautiful and good, for turning the clouds into the most beautiful sparkling everlasting expression of love the universe has ever seen – rival only to the sparkle in your eyes.

Much love to all and most Beautiful of Days! 🙂

Remember…

    The Miracle Is You

 Amen!

A Happy Day

A lot of faith is put into a New Year, as if that magical eve will cast the spell for the days ahead – and ironically,it will,if that is what we believe.

But the truth is, no day is more important than any other, and each day that we rise we have a chance at a new beginning, a chance to let the miracles begin! 

This morning I was amazed by a passage in A Course in Miracles, which reminded me of the truth once again.  Each day when I rise, I am asked to remember this:

Today I will make no decisions by myself.  I will not be the  judge of what is right or wrong.  

Today I will ask for a Happy day. Today I will sing my Happy song!

That happy day may be different for everybody – for me it means a day free of guilt or fear, where I share  my love with those around me freely without any ties to the past.  Where my soul and spirit soar, and I express myself in the easiest and most glorious of ways.  Where I share laughter and hope with my children, and play.  Where I marvel at the miracles of what God has in store.

.

If I forget to ask for this most perfect day, and try to control things myself, make lists and fantasize about the future without asking that happiness be my mainstay, I will get lost in a sea of fits and starts.  I will not know what is on my heart.  Or how to get what is on it off of it again!  We really don’t know what is best.  That doesn’t mean someone else does, either!  It means the answer is inside of us if we Ask.  That higher, happier, more hopeful Self that requires nothing of us but to remember Who We Are as our only happy task.

DSC_0231So I begin the New Year, and this particular day with that Banner of Freedom in my ear:  Today will not be like the last.  Today will be a treasure trove of gardens in the snow, laughter and hope, marveling and startling wilderness of snow. Today will not be like the past.   

Today will be forgiven of anything I forgot to let go, or left behind and forgot to love.  What is inside is everything I could ever know, ever love, ever have.  What got left behind was never separate at all. If I can forgive it, so can God. And so we laugh.

 

There is nothing more to do, really, but start with that eternal question and answer on my lips:  

What would make me most happy today?

 

Because the answer to that is what makes everything else Live.

 

Amen.

 The Miracle is You

 

P.S. What makes YOU live?  What brings you happiness and a smile?  Do you think you deserve it today? Even if you don’t, ask for it anyway. Amen.   😉
