Before You Can “Let Go and Let God”

beforeyoucan

“Before you can, ‘Let Go and Let God,’

you have to let Him in!”

Such simple advice for a Sunday, don’t you think?  Traditionally Sunday is a day of rest from the week’s work and a day designed to relax, to enjoy and to be aware that life is good.  It is a day for family, for enjoyment and for pleasure.

Take some time today to pray, to meditate, and to enjoy stillness with gratitude.  If you can, walk outside to experience the gifts Mother Nature brings every single day.  Look up to the sky, notice the clouds, the stars, the sun and the moon.  If it’s raining, feel the raindrops and the gratitude for the water which feeds all life.  Be grateful for the blessings in your life, even the tiniest ones like waking up this morning!  When we begin to notice even the littlest blessings, more blessings come to us because we are concentrating on that which we have and not what we feel we lack.

Letting go and letting God is scary for many of us have that sense of wanting to be in control and believing we can make things happen simply by actions or wishing or even saying affirmations and imagining what we want to come to us.  By all means, use whatever you find comfort in, but don’t forget about God.  Pray for what is yours by Divine Right.  What is yours, comes to you with perfect timing.  We can’t rush what is to be.  We can only allow what we have now to flourish, to do our best in all that we do and trust that the Universe and God will provide.  Just like the birds who find food even in the scarcest of winters, God provides for us.  We just have to let Him in and allow Him to help us by trusting Him.

Don’t lose faith when what you wish for doesn’t come to fruition.  It’s not meant to be.  As they say, you can’t push the river, but you can go with the flow.  Continue with your actions, but be mindful and watch for signs from Above.  Ask if you are on the right path and know when there’s a detour, it’s probably meant to be.

I write for you and for myself as reminders.  I am guilty of trying to push the river, to plan ahead and to take action for what I want and sometimes it all backfires.  Then I begin again because I feel as if I need to be in control.  But it’s laughable at times since control is an illusion.

When we let God in, we allow miraculous healing to occur.  We allow blessings to expand and we allow gifts to be experienced.  We are each blessed.  Be thankful.

Shine On!

Happiness…

Large Version of Card Front.
You live longer once you realize that any time spent being unhappy is wasted. Ruth E. Renkl
I had an epiphany recently which I thought I would share as it goes along so beautifully with this card, summer and life!  This year I declared was MY YEAR, but it hasn’t worked out the way I planned it to at all.  But then, sometimes the Best Miracles arrive without fanfare, without warning and certainly not within our control.
I am a worrier at times and I know the saying, “worrying is like sitting in a rocking chair ~ it gets you nowhere even though you keep rocking” or something like that… I can’t ever seem to get the exact quote, but please tell me that you get what I’m trying to say?  Anyway, as a family, we often take our boat out to an island which is about an hour away.  It is an ever popular spot amongst boaters as it marries the bay and the ocean via an island which allows you to anchor nearby and enjoy the day.
My thoughts and life have been changing this year and the proof was in the day yesterday that I’ve come a long way, Baby!  For the first time in years, I sat on our boat and enjoyed the day without driving my husband crazy by worrying about the other boaters who are not always careful when they are ‘parking’ and anchoring their boats.  Because it is such a popular spot, many people try to squeeze in-between boats in order to have the closest spot to the island.  We get there early so that we get a prime spot before the droves arrive and it’s that worry that someone will anchor too close that used to have me worrying the entire time we were there.  I would enjoy the day, but I couldn’t keep the worry out of my head nor out of my mouth.  I would motor on as such in a diatribe of worry that it drove my family crazy as well.
Yesterday was the first trip of the season (better late than never) and as the other boats neared, I smiled instead of scowling and simply enjoyed my day.  When the first boat came too close, my first reaction was to worry immediately if they were going to hit us, run over our anchor etc, and the peaceful thought of “Everything is fine,” allowed me to relax and stop the incessant worry which had plagued me for too many past summers.  And…it was WONDERFUL!  I let go!
I am finding that my life is changing for the better when I allow it which is more and more often.  My first thought it to imagine the worst, but it’s simply a bad habit which I’ve grown accustomed to over the years and I now know, has not served me well.  Like many habits, it’s breakable which is great news and it’s simply consistency in my thought process to change it.  Notice I am not being negative about breaking this undesirable habit of mine, I am being positive ~ positive that with time, effort and confidence I can have it licked soon!
Happy Sunday to You!
Enjoy the Miracle of Today!

A Series of Miracles…

Life is a Series of Thousands of Tiny Miracles ~ Mike G.

I have been on an incredible journey the last 2 weeks which without sharing too much, I will tell you that I am having an amazing surgery on May 9th in NYC which is going to be executed by 2 pioneers of this procedure which will change my life forever, for the better.  To tell you that I am so very grateful for the journey that has easily led me here is an understatement.  I have repeatedly cried tears of gratitude over the past 2 weeks as I am so very blessed to be given this rare opportunity to change my life and my body for the better.

As a breast cancer survivor, I have endured many surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation.  In the past 10 years alone, I have endured 6 surgeries.  I have lived with a numbing pain that never leaves me and is such a part of my life that quite honestly, I can’t remember what it’s like to not be in pain.  To have the gift of the opportunity to remove the implants which have plagued me for 10 years and are causing me increased pain and complications even after having them already replaced once to no avail is such a blessing to me that it makes me tear up even as I write this to you.

I couldn’t have orchestrated the timing, the help, the benevolence, the serendipity of all of the amazing coincidences which seems to miraculously appear and make my life and my decision easier.  I know that I am meant to have this surgery right now as all the planning in the world couldn’t have lined up my stars, my appointments, my angelic helpers and the blessings that have rained down on me like cherry blossom petals in the wind.

I have all that I need for this long surgery and recovery ahead.  Strangers have helped me in inexplicable ways and doors have opened for me faster than I could have exclaimed ‘open sesame’ which I just continue to find so amazing.   I just keep going with the flow and I’m not worrying!

So, my post today is to tell you to keep believing, keep hoping, keep praying,

keep manifesting and keep your faith.

Because my story is living proof that there are a series of miracles out there ~

waiting for you when you’re ready.

And you’ll find that you are incredulously calm when it happens…

a peace overcomes you and you just know.

May All be right in your world today too!

Happy Sunday to you all.

I saw this quote on Facebook and copied it as a card.  Unfortunately, I can’t remember from what site I found it and I can’t make out Mike’s last name which is the reason for the G., but I am hoping  Mike won’t mind. 🙂
