I am not a body. I am free.For I am still as God created me.
- (187) I bless the world because I bless myself.
God’s blessing shines upon me from within my heart, where He abides. I need but turn to Him and every sorrow melts away, as I accept His boundless Love for me.
I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me.
Personal Notes and Application: Today there is little time to explore the thorny grief and sorrow of losing a father whom we have come to love only through abstraction and forgiveness. That perhaps will come later after the demands of house and property, packing and travel, family and funeral. At this time, we will bless the world because we bless ourselves by spending time with God, where He abides within our hearts, where we can turn to Him, and every sorrow and conflict melts away as we accept His boundless Love for us.
We (James and I) meet my father-in-law in the holy instant. We welcome him with open mind and arms – forgetting and forgiving the hardships and hurts from the past. Let us see only his true Self, a Son of God, created holy and innocent and eternal. Let me thank him for James, my loving and beloved husband. Let us only remember the good he has done. Let all the memories that torment melt away in the light of God’s boundless love. In Jesus name. Amen.
