hide and seek
Parker is playing hide-and-seek with his friends. Do you think be can find Zoe and Jack? Have you ever played hide-and-seek? When you hide behind a tree or a big bush, your friends can't see you- especially if it's dark! But God can always see you no matter where you are. Whether it's late at night or the middle of the day, God knows exactly where you are. You can never hide from God. He will always love and take care of you.
may god use me today
Love will save the world, but only if we express it. May everything I do today be an expression of God's love.
May I be a channel for love today, co-creating with God a more perfect world. With every thought of love, I create a miracle. Every time I withhold love, I deflect one. Today may I only love.
Use my hands and feet,
My words and actions today.
Use who I am and what I do
To help You heal the world.
Zoe likes to take care of her animals. She tucks them in bed and comforts them. Does someone tuck you in bed at night? That feels good, doesn't it? The Bible says that God will take care of you just like a mother takes care of her children. That's because God is like a parent who loves you very much!
may i see all the beauty around me today
Often I'm so lost in my illusions that I do not see the beauty of the world, or hear the music of the world, or feel the love of the world. Today I choose to be aware of them all.
How often I hide away from the gorgeous manifestations around me. From the beauties of nature to the tenderness of friendship, the miracles of the world often fade from my view without my really having seen them. Today may this not be so.
Today I see all the evidence that the world is a wonderful place. May I not fall asleep to the miracles around me. I embrace what the world has to give to me, and I give thanks that it is so.
don't stay mad
Jack is mad. He is having a temper tantrum because he's angry about something that happened. Do you ever get mad? Everyone gets mad once in a while. The important thing is that we shouldn't stay feeling that way. The Bible tells us that by the end of the day, we should not be angry anymore. If you ever get mad, you can go to your room and rest for a while. You can sing a song. And you can ask Jesus to help you be happy and kind again.
In choosing love, i cast out fear
I will see today what I choose to see. If I choose to see guilt, then it will be there; but then I will not see innocence. If I choose to see innocence, it will be there; and I will not see guilt.
Perception is my choice, and I do not pretend today that I am powerless before my decision. I accept that every perception is a choice, and today I choose to see love. I will discern, but I will not judge.
May my mind be disciplined today, to see past guilt to the love that lies beyond it. In myself and in everyone, may I see the innocent and pure and true. Love is my power to invoke the manifestation of what I choose to see.
great big hugs
Zoe loves her fluffy sheepdog. She is giving him a great big hug. Do you think she will hug the people in her family too? Who do you like to hug? When you hug other people, it makes you feel warm inside. And it helps others know that you love them. Giving someone a hug is like saying, "I love you!" without using words. How many people do you think you can hug today?
in realizing who I really am,
Those who walk in wisdom are safe. Proverbs 28:26
Dear God, my wisdom comes from you. Keep me safe in all I do.
on embracing what's important
Crossing the bridge to a better world begins with crossing a bridge inside our minds, from the addictive mental patterns of fear and separation, to enlightened perceptions of unity and love. We're in the habit of thinking fearfully, and it takes spiritual discipline to turn that around in a world where love is more suspect than fear. To achieve a miraculous experience of life, we must embrace a more spiritual perspective. Otherwise, we will leave this earth one day without ever having known the real joy of living.
