Seasons! “Pay Forward” #24

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Seasons! I’m Eighty-nine and a half years old. My physical body is in the winter of life. My heart, mind and soul are in the spring. I can answer yes to three important questions for a simple recipe for a good life. First - I am a beloved lover loving daily. I offer acts of love every day, although I do not always feel loving. We were created in the image and likeness of our Father, He is Love, and so are we. He is much better at being unconditional. We cannot earn His Love nor can we prevent it. Loving His creatures is expressing His Will. The way to worshiping our Father, in spirit and truth is to love. Next - I do something daily that makes a good difference – living Alcoholics Anonymous’ way of life makes it an easy path to follow. This gives me a sense of purpose. I seek fresh opportunities to serve - daily. I am learning how to love more, that makes me feel challenged and productive, which is a key to satisfaction. My third yes, is sharing; giving back some of what I was, I am freely given. On awakening I turn to You, Father and I am filled with love and gratitude. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight you paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6). Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
