In my country today is Thanksgiving Day, a time when family and friends gather together to acknowledge the many blessings that are present in our lives. The tradition dates back to the early days of our country when our ancestors celebrated their survival in a new land. They had built homes in the wilderness, had raised enough crops to keep them alive during the long coming winter, and were at peace with their Indian neighbors. They had followed their vision, beaten the odds and it was time to celebrate!
I would like to take a pause today and express my deepest gratitude for each of my Morning Blessings subscribers. I am blessed to have your encouragement and support as I endeavor to bring forth a creation and passion that fills me with purpose. Thank you for your endless faith in me as a vessel for the counsel and grace of Spirit's words. Know that my heart swells with devotion for each one of you on this day of celebrating my bountiful blessings.
A few years ago these blessings started out as something to send my students, then Spirit whispered to me that more could benefit and showed me how to set everything up so that they could reach people far and wide. Today the list of subscribers is as long as my arm! And it was all so simple! I am in awe of the Absolute when I think what Spirit accomplishes daily through us as we each align with thoughts of unity, health, peace, prosperity, creativity, joy and enlightenment. Wow! When we do that we become the great and balancing power of harmony that has come to Earth. How grateful I am to be a part of that; a part of you.
Later this afternoon, as I look into the faces and hold hands in prayer with those whom I'll be sharing Thanksgiving dinner, I will send each of you a blessing too. A thank you for the contribution of your Presence to my own growth and contentment. A thank you for this special beloved spiritual community that expresses deeper values of peace, compassion, and generosity of Spirit. A thank you for your spiritual bravery in stepping away from the status quo and daring to live a larger life, a spacious life wherein you claim your divine right to all that you can imagine.
From you I receive, to you I give,
Together we share, from this we live.
