Life Renewed!

Why do you look for the living among the dead?  He is not here, but has risen.     Luke 24:5

"On Easter, we awaken from the illusion of death into renewed life.  We are propelled into higher levels of consciousness and greater expressions of good."  Daily Word, Easter 2012.

Each day we awaken, we awaken to a new life, a new beginning.  We have the blessing of a wonderful 'do-over'.  All we have is now.  The past is just that, the past.  It holds no power over us unless we let it.  The future is a big 'maybe'.  We don't even know that we will be 'there' when 'the future' arrives.  
 We need to make NOW important.  We need to make sure that when we retire for the evening we can look over the day and find things in it for which we are truly grateful.  Each day is precious.  Each day is a gift from God.  If we did not smile or laugh, if we did not see or feel something beautiful, then we did not make the most of the day.  I read recently that we should live each day as if it were the first and the last day of our lives.  Finding 30, 15, or even 10 minutes to spend doing something that makes you really happy in each day is not too hard to accomplish.  Making sure to speak kind words to those you love each evening would be a blessing to them and to you.  Make today count.  We really only have NOW.

The following is taken from Daily Word , April 8, 2012:

"I allow the Christ Spirit to rise triumphant in me.  Boldly, I embrace a new way of thinking, an affirmative way of being, and a grand and glorious way of living.  Today I celebrate renewed life!"

Happy Easter and blessings for a wonderful day!
