ACIM Rewind: And for THIS-We thank You-ACIM Lesson # 123
I thank my Father for His gifts to me. [W-p188.8.131.52]
When the Coronavirus began, I was FREAKED OUT!
The shelter in place order threw me for a loop. I mean, an existence with only cats and my partner? I love them but, it was a lot. Especially when they had to deal with a stressed out Estelle….Let’s just say the results were not always pretty.
Eventually, after weeks of self-medicating with sugar and wine, I decided to try a different tack. I started a gratitude journal.
Yup, a gratitude journal. Essentially I listed 10 things in the morning I was grateful for. This week I looked back-nothing earth-shattering. Things like spring flowers. The smell of cool air first thing in the morning.
I kept it up throughout the Pandemic. It served as a gift which reminded me that, no matter what is going on in our world, there is always something to be grateful for.
Lesson 123 tells us we have come farther than we realize. That if we take the time to observe, for even a year, what we have been through and how we have grown-We will be blown away by what we have accomplished. Thankful for all that we are and are here to do.
Lesson 123 is a big one-You have a function to fulfill Dear Friends. One that gratitude shines a brilliant light on. In reverence for your gifts.
You light the world and the path for everyone you see by doing what you are appointed to do. By being in Love.
Source is grateful. For you. For existing. For shining your unique light into the world. You are the light in the darkness. The vibration of hope ringing in the world. The Voice of Truth echoing the sounds of hope. The world needs your energy every day to help it remember who it is. One-ness. Light. Truth. Power and strength, filling the world with love.
And for THIS Source thanks you. Lesson 123 guarantees this gratitude will be returned in droves of timeless perfection. Limitless opportunity and love. Sweet love.
