Choosing to Live in Love

“Love…..bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”– I Corinthians 13:7.

Just about everyone I know is someone’s child. And many of the people I know are someone’s mother or father. Sometimes events like Mother’s Day bring up old memories for us–possibly some that we would have been just as happy to forget years ago.

In my book for the month, Mary Manin Morrissey challenges us to look for the “God thought” in every memory. A “God thought” recognizes that eeveryone is the essence, expression and experience of Spirit. A “God thought” assumes everyone’s best intentions, knowing that everyone (including our parents and children) are always doing the
best they can in the moment.

Adventures such as childhood, in the rear-view mirror, don’t always look so hot. And yet, when we allow ourselves to look back with adult eyes, we see that everyone and everything was on our path for a reason.

A “God thought” removes the filter that dims the truth and allows every positive intention to shine through. Someone said that “the light you seek is within your own lantern.”

This recognition can bring us wonderful peace. It is always available to us.
