I haven’t had lots of “real friends”. I believe that real friends are an incredible blessing and not easy to come by. Those who have been my real friends – are still my real friends. I may not talk to them daily – in fact, I sometimes lose touch with them for several years because our lives have taken such different paths. The wonderful thing about real friends is that your hearts remain connected forever. If I picked up the phone right now and called them to let them know I was thinking about them – we would just simply pick up from where we left off. Spending time with or talking to a real friend is like sitting down with a warm mug of hot cocoa in your oversized flannel shirt and floppy slippers – the experience always leaves you feeling cozy and content. Why not reach out to one of your real friends today?!!
I have been having one of those days…the kind where I just want to wiggle my nose and instantly be on the beach in Hawaii with a warm gentle breeze blowing through my face and not have a care in the world. Don’t get me wrong…my life is truly wonderful, I just sometimes have days when I really feel the load of having so many irons in the fire. In the depths of my heart I know that, prior to this life, I chose each and every one of those “irons”. I am truly grateful for every morsel of my life. What a blessing it is to be able to know the vision that God has embedded in my heart and to be able to work towards its realization! When I found today’s quote, I knew I needed to create today’s meme around it. I know that it’s true. Not only do miracles occur after great opposition but the greatest blessings often come then as well. May we all overcome the opposition in our lives and be the recipients and many blessings and miracles!
I’m not sure I believed in guardian angels before my near death experience. What I still don’t believe is that we have only one. I have been incredibly blessed by my guardian angels! In fact, it was one of those guardian angels that took me back to heaven during my near death experience. I believe that most often it is our deceased family members who watch over us. Who better to watch over us than those who know and love us best? I remember reading a book (can’t remember the name of the book or the author) of a man who had a near death experience while in a coma. His deceased uncle and cousin showed him some of the work they did with/for other family members. They did even seemingly minor things like remind family members of appointments and other specific tasks that needed their attention. One of the most important things I have learned in recent months is the importance of asking God for assistance from my guardian angels. I believe that my guardian angels have always been a part of my life. I suspect that various guardians assist me and others depending on our needs. I pray for the help of my angels daily. They are unseen, but I have felt their presence and seen their assistance demonstrated too many times to doubt them or their existence! Since praying for their assistance, I have been able to find strength easier, find answers quicker, and feel greater reassurance towards the path in life that I am walking.
Take just a moment or two… Take time after you have shared your needs and wants with your Creator and let Him reply. Or better yet, ask Him what He would have you know – then listen. For me, this is when prayer becomes most profound. I never walk away from “listening” without feeling like I have been immensely enriched and blessed.
