Blessings for 2019

by Peter Twitchell

Two weeks already into a new year, it’s time to lighten our load of excess baggage! Let’s get rid of resentments, jealousy, hatred, envy, anger, blame, temper, even our great BIG ego, i.e. (I’m better than you, I’m stronger, smarter, richer).

All ego is negative and hurts us in the long run.

I don’t care if every single strand of my hair is not in its place. “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.” Discover love, peace, and joy in 2019!

Always put beauty in your mind – go back to the light, go back to the light that was there in the beginning of our life.

When I was younger, and living in darkness, I had an unforgiving spirit. I was wrong! God even warns us in the holy scriptures of His word. “If you do not forgive each other, my heavenly Father who sits on my right side will not forgive you, when you stand before us.”

“Time turns the pages and time goes so fast,” a line from the song, “I wish I was 18 again.”

Those years live in my memory, cherished memories. There is yet time to make great memories, so they say, we are the creators of our own destiny. Only you can make life beautiful. It’s up to each one of us to make each day count.

I decided October 14, 1995 that people, places and things can’t bring joy and happiness in my life, it’s up to me to foster and nurture in myself. Sure, others add to our comfort and help fill the cup, so to speak. What a blessing!

But God already placed in each of us His spirit of love, peace and joy. It’s up to me to share this gift with others.
