“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
John F. Kennedy 1917-1963, 35th President of the United States
It is not enough to tell the world that we believe in love. We must show love. It is not enough to tell the world that we want peace. We must live in ways that foster peace. It is not enough to tell the world that we seek positive change. We must in our own lives make a difference and act in ways that would welcome such change that we desire. And, it is not enough to say that we seek to be of service to others. We must act when we receive the call to serve. The Divine presence sends us messages daily through the connections that we share with others. Are we open to listen and receive the message? Do you practice what you preach in life? Are you ready to live a life showing the highest appreciation for all that you have experienced?
Look around you. Pay attention to the world around you. What are your signs telling you? Are you grateful for all the blessings that you have received in life- if so, express your gratitude by paying your love, peace, positive change and service forward. There are many people whose eyes are not open to what you are experiencing. There are many people who could benefit from your presence today. Maybe you are one of those people. If so, how can I be of service to you? I will do my best as my arms are open wide if you need an embrace. There is space in my heart to express love to you. I am ready to listen if you need a shoulder to cry on. I am here and I recognize that you are as well. Let us support each other today by not just uttering words, but by living by them. When we do this, our soul open up and joy pours in and there is no better feeling in the world. Try it and live in your gratitude.
