A Birthing Event!

BlessedMother

The heavens celebrate your birth: “Glory to God in the highest, and peace to God’s people on earth”, and it came to pass.

 

Birthing is about the wonderment of God. It is the dream of what we cannot see with our physical eyes; a yearning to connect to the Spirit within. “Know ye not that Christ dwells within you?”

Through a tiny being of Love, the call of God is heard. It manifests in the voice of angels and hearts that are open to receive all that is good – the gift of God. Claim your birthright as a child of the living God.

 

“You’ve awakened to the inner urgings of the Spirit, the most excellent parts of God.”

(Awakening the Inner Ticker of Life, page 88, by Patricia A. Zorn)

 

The Presentation

Have you presented your absolute best to God in joy?
After Jesus’ birth, there came a time for him to be presented in the temple.
In many faith traditions, after a child is born, she/he is baptized. This is seen as a time of welcoming a little one into the fold, part of God’s family, and a time of joy and celebration.
One of the mysteries of the Rosary that many recite, following the journey of Christ and the divinity of all life, is the presentation of Jesus; a Joyful Mystery.
Our personal presentation can also be looked upon as a new beginning. This is a time to trust; a time to believe and a time to see. Patience is a virtue in this simplistic process.
Simeon and Anna waited all those years to get a glimpse of the one who would bring Light to this world, as Mary & Joseph brought Jesus into the temple on that special day.
So, we too, in our own way can experience this joy and present ourselves to God through prayer with perseverance, wonder and the hope of tomorrow.

“My promises to you are healing, hope, abundance and joy. You just have to trust me. These are my blessings for you, eternal in love and hope.” (Heavenly Messages 2014)
