Somebody sent this quote to me some days ago. It immediately set down my thoughts to a dance..... a happy dance. Why? Because those lines are just what I would have wanted to say myself but which somebody else had beat me to it :-) .........

To quote...

"The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises." -- Leo Buscaglia

Beautiful, isn't it? Spiritual exercises.

That's what we should be doing .. to ourselves and to one another. Sadly we often forget that in our daily lives. Instead we set our own sights to things outside ourselves applauding someone or something else when we should be acknowledging our own specialness first as being the work of God's hands. Have you ever thought that maybe God wants to talk to us about this?

I say this in the context of understanding our own birthright as children of God. We are special and in being so are equipped by the wisdom of God with all that is necessary to bring out that specialness to others and to the world. Whatever gift you have been blessed with has a built-in mission.... to help make this a better place with who you are and what you have, by God's design.

Remember this line? ---- "There are two ways to spread light; to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it." (Edith Wharton) ....... And that, my friends, is our spiritual exercise.

Stand tall.... strong... brave... empowered to be who you really are -- a child of God. Be happy with that thought. Be HIS light to the world.

May God bless you with His Light and Grace for all times.


  1. Ellen,

    While sending us here God does full programming but some of us can not fight viral which attacks at times and thus the programming goes haywire. Good reminder to fight such virals.

    Take care
