Gratitude Heals

Gratitude heals everything unreal and reveals what is Good and of God.

Gratitude heals the mind from the separation of judgment and fear.
Gratitude reveals the beautiful blessings that lie within all things.

Gratitude heals the thoughts of sickness pain and death.
Gratitude reveals the glory of life with its bountiful gifts.

Gratitude heals what we thought we endured in vain.
Gratitude reveals what was learned and strengthened in faith.

Gratitude heals the heartache of loss and separation.
Gratitude reveals that love is endless and only changes in form.

Gratitude heals the sickness of criticism and complaint.
Gratitude reveals the song of forgiveness and affirms the prayer of peace.

Gratitude heals the focus on what divides and provides fearful distraction.
Gratitude reveals the trust and perfection beneath all seeming problems.

Gratitude is a prayer of praise and thanksgiving.
Gratitude reveals what is truly beautiful, holy and Good.

Remember there is Good in all things.
It is our function to clear the debris and really see beneath the apparency.

Loving you and loving me…as One,
Betty Lue

“Appreciation increases and grows what you value.”

If you would grow to be your best self
Be patient, not demanding
Accepting, not condemning
Nurturing, not withholding
Self-marveling, not belittling
Gently guiding, not pushing & punishing

For you are more sensitive than you know
Mankind is tough as war
Yet delicate as flowers
We can endure agonies
But we open fully only to warmth & light
And our need to grow is fragile as a fragrance
Dispersed by storms of will
To return only when those storms are still

So accept, respect,
Attend your sensitivity

A flower
Cannot be opened
With a hammer
