A Miracle Story

I love and experience miracles everyday.
Life works for me, because I forgive.
I believe there are no limits to Goodness.
I trust I am perfectly love and provided for.

A Miracle Story from my friend, LInda.

“Betty Lue, A miracle occurred for me on the night of April 4th.  I was trying to make grilled cheese sandwiches using my gas stove’s largest burner, and when I flipped one of the sandwiches, it became skewed.  As I tried to correct the problem, what I was wearing caught fire.  As I hurriedly turned off the stove, I asked God for help quickly and gave thanks in advance.  I hurried to the sink where I tried to hurl my clothing off.  Most of what I was wearing hit the sink but not all.  I wasn’t burned at all, got immediate help from neighbors and the fire department, and later from my brother Doug, who took me to his house overnight.  My cat was fine, hiding himself under the covers of my bed.  This is precipitating a long overdue fix of the ceilings in this house and remodeling of a very old kitchen whose cabinets have never closed properly since I’ve been here.  Also, the pipe that broke this past week got repaired, and the repairs went much more easily than the plumbers figured they would go, and they didn’t have to cut out nearly as much concrete from the front of my house as first thought.  I think this would-be catastrophe is bringing me and my family even closer together.  I’ll obviously need to live elsewhere as the construction will make it necessary for my cat and I to stay probably with my mom temporarily.  Patricia’s  Cota Robles words so clearly express the forward movement that seems to be happening in my own life and perhaps my own deepening of God and my angels and guides always being around me, and Jesus always being on call for help.”    Linda G.

The miracle of this story is that Linda has been blind since birth. 
She is an amazing person with little or no fear.
She has dared to do what many people with sight would not do.
She is powerful, capable, faith-filled and loving.
She is gentle, kind and forgiving of herself and others.
Linda is the true miracle of Love.

What do you believe?
What do you trust?
Where do you place your faith?
How do you respond to seeming danger and difficulty?

We all make choices to what seems to happen.
Some may react with anger and swearing.
Some may be paralyzed with fear.
Some may scream and cry with helplessness.

And some may respond with asking for Higher Power and faith and give thanks in advance.
Life is a chance to grow up and seek the Higher Ground.
Every lesson can be easily learned with open-mindedness and willingness.
Each relationship offers opportunities to teach and learn from one another.

You and I can be negative about our past history or give thanks for our lives just as they are.
We can learn to see the miracles and the blessings in what has been.
We can forgive hurting ourselves with negative stories.
We can undo what we no longer want to be true by releasing the past.

Is it not time to learn from everything with open-mindedness?
Are you ready to give thanks for being where you are to learn?
Can you stop judging and comparing another’s learning experiences?
Are you willing to trust everything always works together for Good?

It’s your choice.
Loving you, 
Betty Lue

Everything that comes from Love is a Miracle.
We can only see miracles with forgiving eyes.

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
No disease that enough love will not heal;
No door that enough love will not open;
No gulf that enough love will not bridge;
No wall that enough love will not throw down;
No sin that enough love will not redeem.

 It makes no difference
  how deeply seated may be the trouble,
How hopeless the outlook,
How muddled the tangle,
How great the mistake.
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.

 If only you could love enough, you would be the happiest
and most powerful being in the world.
