#6. An Angel Says...Every Morning, Afternoon and Night

"Thanks for arms and legs and eyes, that carry me beneath the skies. 
Enabling me to look both down and up, and contemplate the fullness of my cup."
~ Joyce Boger ~

Ingratitude is one of the woeful failings of our society. The failure to acknowledge the sovereignty and the beneficence of God, the refusal to bend our will to His, are at the very root of the major problems in our society.

Prayer, family prayer in the homes of people in all lands, is one of the simple medicines that would check the dread disease that robs men and women of honesty, character and integrity. In generations past, individual and family prayers, in the homes of people throughout the world were as much a part of the day’s activity as was eating. As the practice of prayer has diminished, moral decay has increased.

The inclination to be holy, to be thankful, is increased as family members kneel together and thank the Lord for life and peace and all that they may become under His guidance. In remembering together before the Lord the poor, the needy, the oppressed, there is developed, unconsciously but realistically, a love for others above self, a respect for others, a desire to serve the needs of others. One cannot ask God to help a neighbor in distress without being motivated to do something toward helping that neighbor.

What miracles would be evident if, beginning now, beginning this Thanksgiving season, we all would lay aside our own selfishness and lose ourselves in the service of others. Our prayers of Thanksgiving, this season and daily all through the year, will bring comfort to our hearts, knit us together in love, and open to us the treasures of wisdom, knowledge, gratitude and forgiveness.

#5. An Angel Says...Hugs, Words, Notes

Everything we say produces an effect in the world.
Whatever we say to someone else will produce  
some kind of an effect in that person. 
We are constantly creating something,
either positive or negative with our words.

Our words can make a positive difference
on the people we interact with every day.
Before we speak, we should ask ourselves
"Is what I am about to say
going to uplift the hearer?

"Will it inspire, motivate, and create
forward momentum for them?
Will it dissolve fear and create safety and trust?
Will I create a positive or negative ripple effect
by speaking these words?"

Let's be determined to unleash
the power of words
for positive change.

#4. An Angel Says...You Must Live in Peace

If we could remember this in times of trouble,
The peace would come to not only others,
but also to ourselves.

So with my morning tea, I believe

My granddaughter had a birthday this week!

Time flys when you're having fun...

Leila took this picture of herself. 
She's quite a camera bug.

I found this poem on the web and it is so fitting for today.

"Little Girls"

Little girls are made of daisies and butterflies and soft kitty cat purrs
And all the precious memories of times that once were.

Little girls are made of angel's wings and giggles and a firefly's glow
And all the happy feelings, deep inside, that we all know.

Little girls are made of cinnamon and bubbles and fancy white pearls
And snowflakes and rainbows and ballerina twirls.

Little girls are made of sunshine and cupcakes and fresh morning dew,
And these are the reasons, little one, why everyone loves you.

#3. An Angel Says...It Is Critical

How more critical than now!
It is sad to see our world becoming so violent.
No respect for life, no caring thought.
I pray there are still MANY out there that want peace.

Philippians 4:6
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and
supplication with thanksgiving
let your request be made known to God.

Here's to your health!
