Daily Reminder # 723

Running late again. It's an exquisite day here. The temperature is mild, there's a slight breeze, the sky is blue with fluffy clouds. Feels nice after a summer that has - to date- felt like preparation for the apocalypse. I went to the back door early and enjoyed watching  the woodchuck for a while. Vanessa the chipmunk came too. She was very nervous today even by chipmunk standards, so I didn't get much in the way of pictures. Still wrapped up in politics and then obsessively playing computer games to take my  mind off of how annoyed I am by politics. 

Going to take the Neale Donald Walsch route today. Not sure what to make of this message from God. To be honest, it makes me a touch anxious. I have found that things that move me closer to God that require me to suspend my judgement of what they mean are not things I enjoy. That said, it's a glorious day, so maybe THAT is what is moving me closer to God today. 

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

...that the events of this very day will 
move you closer to God.

That is what they were designed to do, 
and you will experience them doing just that 
if you will allow yourself to.

It is all a matter of opening your eyes to 
what is really happening (as opposed to what 
it looks like is happening). Judge not by 
outward appearances.

Love, Your Friend....

Some things I'm grateful for today: (Items in red are pre-gratitude, an effort to embrace my inner billionaire (might as well go big),  to begin to trust myself and the Universe, and to establish a relationship with the Creative Forces of the Universe and get them to establish one with me.)
