Daily Reminder # 647

Well, it's cold and damp and rainy. It looks like Spring at the moment and feels like Fall and tonight it's supposed to snow. Strange weather. I spent some time at the back door and even the little chipmunk didn't bother to drop by... just this little starling... who sang a sweet song even in the rain.

A little Neale Donald Walsch today.... something we all need to hear, I think, especially those of us who have too often been told the opposite...

On this day of your life, dear friend, 
I believe God wants you to know...
..that you are a pure child of God, beautiful 
in your innocence -- and that this is true 
no matter what you may have done.
There is no offense you could ever 
commit that can rob you of your magnificence, 
or of the wonder of who you are. Gosh, Eliot Spitzer's 
drama has brought up a lot of stuff for all of us, hasn't 
it? Yet who among us hasn't fallen from the path, 
betrayed another, acted unwisely, fallen prey to 
temptation, given in to a craving or addiction?
All of us are human. And in God's eyes that 
makes us perfect. Really. Just the way we are. 
Like 3-year-olds, looking anxiously up at some elder, 
wondering with quivering lips whether we'll get 
spanking for breaking the rules...
The 3-year-old is beautiful in her innocence. He is 
pure as snow, and there is simply something that 
has not been totally understood, or fully integrated into 
behavior yet.  It's okay. We don't mean to be "bad." 
And in truth, we aren't. Not a one of us.
We're simply, sometimes, mistaken. And God loves 
us anyway. Immensely. Completely. Eternally.
Just   as    we    are.

Love, Your Friend....
