"Be" Attitudes of Dating

Jun 28th 2013 new

Everyone here is looking for that special person to maketheir life complete. Notice I said their life not to make them complete. There is a difference. To be ready to receive that special gift fromGod, we need to be at ease and content with the person we are inside and out. I am not talking about being arrogant or vain,it is being able to love and value our own being as God does; with the grace tobe grateful in humility and modesty for all of the gifts He has bestowed. When we are able to do that, miracles happensince we have opened the door within our hearts to allow them to enter. We must BE the miracle He made us inthought, word, and deed. Happy to be in our own skin as joyful and lovingexamples to others traveling the same road of life. Sometimes a daily affirmation added to morningprayers is all you need to shine that special light in you and through you forthe whole day. I wish everyone the grace and love needed to be successful in this journey.

Dear Lord, I pray that every day

I shine for You in work and play.

When sadness and despair I see

Turn on the light of joy in me.

If loneliness becomes a fear

Let my soft touch show them Youre near.

When doubts arise within some heart

With courage let me ease the dark.

When past regrets cloud how they live

Let me remind them You forgive.

Let me remember of all things,

You raise me up on angels wings.

Im loved, protected, and quite whole

ForYou reside within my soul. - Monica P. June 2013
