9/30/12 God deserves your best. You were shaped for a purpose. Are you making the most of what you’ve been given? Share your experiences with others. People are always most encouraged when you show how God’s grace helped in your weakness rather than brag about strengths. Be honest and give God the glory!
9/29/12 Like stained glass, our unique personalities reflect God’s light in a variety of colors and patterns. When you do the things God created you to do, you experience fulfillment and satisfaction. You are a solitary combination of personality traits and character. Only you can be you and do what you do. There is no duplication.
9/28/12 Affirmations are statements spoken consciously, entering your subconscious mind where they have the power to change your life. Create present-tense positive sentences, as if what you are affirming is already true. You deserve to be happy so speak words of love and kindness to yourself. Your reality will begin to reflect the affirmations. Trust the truth of your positive words.
9/27/12 Worrying is a destructive habit that decreases your effectiveness in all areas of your life. When you worry, you focus on things that haven’t taken place. It is negative meditation, and stops the flow of creativity. It accomplishes nothing, and can make you physically ill. Worrying will not add a moment to your life, but trusting God and praying will change everything!
9/26/12 You are loved by God, because God is love. Faith nurtures your spirit and lifts you up. Light shines brightly in darkness. When you are feeling discouraged, pray for the grace to rely on God’s love. Ask for the Holy Spirit to revive the spark of light that is within you. When you are weak, God is strong!
9/25/12 Adversity is a curse and a blessing. When trouble comes your way, let it be an opportunity for growth. When your faith is tested, pass with flying colors. God’s truth has endurance that lasts. Recognize that the ability to overcome adversity is a blessing from God. Learn from all your trials and failures and step up!
9/24/12 You are never alone. When discouraged, you might feel alone. Support is always there, but you need to ask for it in faith. Your call for help is someone else’s call to action. One of the amazing things about living is your ability to solve problems if you let your spirits soar and your imagination take flight. Take time to count your strengths and blessings. Ask, believe, receive!
9/23/12 Contentment is good for the soul, but somehow we have lost its meaning. Contentment is not the opposite of success. It is not only possible but desirable to be both content and ambitious. If your ambitions come from a desire to serve God, help others, and improve yourself, then fulfillment of those things will bring much happiness and contentment. Cherish tranquility!
Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. Contemplation is the highest form of meditation!
9/22/12 Communication is about much more than talking. Good communication skills begin with listening. You learn things by listening and allowing the talker to feel important. Always have a ready smile and firm handshake. No one will ever accuse you of being a boring conversationalist if you let people talk about themselves. Most are attracted by enthusiasm!
9/21/12 Encouragement is a valuable gift. It is meaningful to the recipient and it is free to give, requiring only your time, creativity, and thoughtfulness. Encouragement creates energy all by itself. Just watch the increase in activity when you motivate and support another. No one ever gets too much of it, so don’t be stingy; give it often!

I believe everyday is a gift from our Creator. As we age, some may fear the unknown~death. People who become aware of their mortality find they have actually gained freedom to live. They have found they have an appreciation for the present. We are all here to contribute love, forgiveness, and service. As I age, I want to nourish my soul's purpose. If we are open to grace, people will appear in our lives to encourage growth of our souls. Allow me to provide daily nourishment through loving words, because joy is our birthright. I call these my daily "Truth Vitamins" for spiritual health. Join me in discovering together our inner soul purpose with "Love~that's all there is".
