Daily Reminder # 714

Think I'll share a Neale Donald Walsch Message from God tonight. When things sometimes feel like they aren't working out, it's good to get a reminder like this. The CO2 detector went off again last night. Not beeping quite as regularly. Very strange. It's unplugged and has no batteries so I don't know why it's doing that. Hopefully it has beeped its last now.

I like this series even though they aren't the best shots. I love watching
the parent birds feed the young ones. 

In addition to getting my mail without the challenge of bringing it in myself, another gift of Meals-on-Wheels is that the bring bread every day. I'm not big on bread so it's a cheap way to feed the birds and the chipmunk. I give them any veggies I don't like too. 

But I digress... here's Neale's message from God...  For me one of the best examples of this was when I was looking for my house. I was scared. I was desperate to get away from the crazy landlady. She was my 3rd crazy landlord in less than 2 years and I couldn't afford the emotion or the expense of moving to another rental. So anyway, I found a tiny, reasonably cheap house and the bank gave me a mortgage. I was devastated when the seller decided to sell it to someone else. I felt like the world had ended. But it was a gift that I didn't get that house. The person who was helping me look (who was not accustomed to showing houses to poor people), told me that he didn't think I could really afford it. (He was right.) I had labored over the numbers and it was not a nickle to spare, but seemed like it should be do-able. It had never occurred to me  - never - that a bank would offer me a loan they knew I could not afford, but  I know now that they had indeed done so. My little house that I ended up buying was $15,000 cheaper and the mortgage is 3.5% lower and I'm still barely making it.  So anyway, my point is that what seemed like a devastating loss turned out to be great good luck. I really believe that Angels were watching over me. Anyway... that's my thoughts on this. Just realized that my sign-off last night was like a premonition. Oooooooooo.... Guess I'll repeat it tonight.

On this day of your life, dear friend, 
I believe God wants you to know...

...that no effort is ever wasted, although some pay
dividends later than you think.

Do not imagine that you "wasted your time" because
something didn't turn out right. There is no such thing
as "waste" in the Universe. Everything -- everything --
yields benefit.

It's true. And your life will show you this. So don't
decry the "effort that failed." All things lead to your
highest good. You just may not know it yet.

You know even now why you just read this...

Love, Your Friend....
