God said:

Beloved, what breath of fresh air has arrived today to bless you? Delight in today’s blessings, yet not as a possession owed to you, but for you to receive humbly. You are deserving. Know it. Know this: Your blessings today are blessed gifts that find their way to you. Today may rightfully feel the way the Holy of Holies you have heard about may feel like. Well, why not? This may well make sense to you.

Please know that you are at the right place at the right time. You are meant to be here at this precise moment to ensure that these blessings catch up to you right on this day. All My blessings are meant to reach you on a day like this. Every blessing you receive on any day is rightfully yours. There are no accidents. Punishment is not exacted from you no matter what is bruited about it in the daily newspaper.

The days are real when you can cry out in exultation: “Glory be to God from Whom all blessings flow. Thank You, God. Thank You, thank You. Thank You, God.”

At these moments, enjoy the rising impulse to repay the favor to the Universe and to Me, God, Who grants you such blessings delivered through the hands and words of so-called ordinary mortals. You do not make a big deal of your blessings, as if you are a wonder of wonders, even as you are! Stand straight and let go of your ownership as a matter of course. Be glad and grateful that you are you as you are and how life reaches you today, can you?

Yes, another lovely day arises on the horizon. There’s no telling what joy the birdsong on this day may bring. Accept the day and its plaudits. And, if there are punches, why, roll with them. No telling what bells the Universe tolls today or tomorrow. Life will do its thing.

A new day dispels random effects of a seeming contrary world. Lean your face into today’s rain or sunshine and sing: “Thank You, God. Thank You, God, in the Highest.”

Know that I, God, also thank you. The Universe thanks you as well.

No longer fight life on a day that may arrive and seem ungracious to you. Accept on your honor that on any given day to come, you will accept what comes. There are no unlucky days. You don’t have to eat up every day, nor do you have to be undone by any day. No matter what, keep Me in your your life and be happy enough when a day comes forth dressed in less than all its finery.

Let go of the idea that life will take away from you. That’s only misperception when you dare to take life utterly personally. You have no obligation to feel assaulted.

Certain fruit may become ripe today. The world may dub today’s fruit that falls from the Tree of Life as bitter. What does the world know, Beloved? No one has to feel scathed by life because of what he or she makes of it. Neither you nor the world at large has the right to take a dark view of life. Brighten life. You are learning how to live in life with good grace.

Is there a better way for you to respond to life and Me than with good grace?

I pledge My troth to you as you grow on My tree in the vineyard. The idea that I take away anything from you is a myth. Appearances are only appearances. So help Me God, appearances only seem to be truth.
