Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer
I Give Meaning to My Life
I know and believe there is only One Power and Presence. My individualized expression of God is at the depth of my being; this is what gives meaning to my existence.
I find my Truth, on the inside not outer circumstances. I delight in being alive and my life unfolds as happiness, peace, and harmony. I am grateful, knowing my journey is guided by divine clarity. This allows me to focus on the freedom to feel and see the true meaning of life in all I do. I celebrate my life, spreading joy and love. This brings me purpose knowing I make a difference in the world, and gives me a sense of purpose in every situation. How good it is to be alive.
With deep gratitude, I release my word to the Law, knowing there is nothing to block my celebration of Truth here and now. It is done. And so it is. Amen

The Good Thought
Quotes About
Father's Day

"Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, story-tellers, and singers of song."
Pam Brown
"To the world you are a dad. To our family you are the world."
"I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren't trying to teach us. We are formed by the little scraps of wisdom."
Umberto Eco


Intuitive Card Reading just for You!
I am pulling a card from 
"Archangel Power Tarot Cards"
by Doreen & Radleigh!
King of Gabriel
"Generous, Inspirational, Dramatic, Driven"
"Keep your eyes on the big picture: leave the details to others. Experience that leads to success. Genuine concern for others".

Situations: This is all about the big picture! There is a great deal to be done, but your job is to come up with the grand vision. Leave the details to someone else. You can take risks because you the experience and know-how to do so successfully. Those around you expect (and want) you to take the lead. Let your enthusiasm and natural charm shine through. Creativity is the key to a successful endeavor.
People: A magnetic and determined leader. Someone with broad vision who can motivate people to greatness. Inspirational. Generous. Forceful. Ingenious. Dramatic. Driven. Enthusiastic.
Additional meaning: An investor with morals. Genuine concern for the welfare of all. Setting an example. Unexpected money."
What stands out for me with this card is: Creativity is the key to a successful endeavor
I'm going to tell you why - I asked the Beloved Creator what do we most need to know as a congregation and also as an individual. - Let's just say when the word creativity showed up, I recognized it as truth immediately.
Possibly because, if I am honest, the only time I am truly happy in my life is when I am creating something. When I am lost to time because I am so riveted by the process of participation and of being caught up in the flow of something incredible being worked through me.
I often forget just how beautifully trusting and surrendered that I am as I release the need for control enough to be guided by the Divine just as a child is guided by an instructor.
Picture it - that face alive with absorption and attentiveness, gently guided by a loving and instructive person who is along for the ride too.
Remember having that attention by a more knowledgeable source during arts and crafts in grade school.
Well I was thinking personally of taking a course in this creativity SBCC next semester. . So when the King of Gabriel card showed up, I was so pleased!
Here's why - let's talk about the symbols:
This card the King is all about that Parental Authority and the father energy of Spirit showing up in your life. This is the opportunity to knock on doors to teachers, to access that         inner wisdom you have, as well as draw upon the experts in the field that supports your big idea.
Gabriel  i s an important Angel which means " God is my Strength " - and in this spread is about tapping into the creative impulse that God's love is expressed as throughout all creation.
The main point is you don't have to go it alone!´
So we can ask for expert assistance. To build our dream life, we may need to consult a contractor, a counselor, an architect.
We need to approach our projects with humility and the openness of a child learning how to paint.
This process unfolds so perfectly as the result of this harmonious collaboration. So if you need a listening ear, call on a friend. No need to white knuckle and strain to bring your dream to fruition.
This Gabriel is also a messenger of good. So I'm sure you read up above about this manifestation of good coming through as money and abundance.
Shoots it could mean an invitation to a party when you were lonesome. It could be a snippet of information about a job opportunity that you have been wishing for.
This King of Gabriel is all about the unleashing of good upon your world through the counsel of your elders.
If you can set your ego aside and ask for what you seek, all I can say is that the windows of heaven will open wide and shower you with good and more good.
This is a card to support you and remind you that you are loved, adored and carefully nurtured during this creatively seemingly stuck time.
The cavalry is coming with great news. Keep your ears peeled and relax.
Here's a quote help:
"When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed."
Maya Angelou

Here's an affirmation to use and let the peace from within flow:
  And so it is.
And So It Is.

Will be up next week.
Silent, Strong Dad
By Karen K. Boyer
He never looks for praises.
He's never one to boast.
He just goes on quietly working
For those he loves the most.
His dreams are seldom spoken.
His wants are very few,
And most of the time his worries
Will go unspoken, too.
He's there...a firm foundation
Through all our storms of life,
A sturdy hand to hold onto
In times of stress and strife.
A true friend we can turn to
When times are good or bad.
One of our greatest blessings,
The man that we call Dad.

What Brother Ernie said:
"Now Are We the Sons of God"
The world does not know the son of God. The material sense cannot recognize the spiritual. Spiritual things must be spiritually understood. God's love is complete in us, in that we are His sons, -- the sons of freedom and not of bondage.
"Now are we the sons of God."
Not in the hereafter, but in the Now, are we just what we are, and what we must be, -- because of our true natures.
"Now are we the Sons of God."
The birth of the soul into the light of Spirit is an awakening to the realization that God has been with us all the time.
"Now are we the sons of God."
Today is the day of complete salvation. Not tomorrow or the day after, but NOW.
It does not now completely appear what we really are, for now we see only in part, but when He shall appear we shall recognize him for we shall see him in his true light. This He, means ourselves, -- the Christ in us, our hope and assurance of eternal glory. We shall be like him. We have inwardly been like him all the time, but when He shall appear, we shall see him as he is, that is, we shall know, even as we also are known; -- we shall know ourselves.
"We shall see him as he is."
Not as he now appears, for he is hidden in the innermost recesses of our nature. We shall see him with the spiritual eye that dims not, with a clear sight that penetrates all suppositional opposites and announces the ever-present reality. We shall see ourselves as we really are, forever held in the bosom of the universe, -- the sons of God.
Who doeth right, is right, even as He is right. This again reveals us to ourselves. This is the great revelation; the revelation of the self to the self. But before this can take place we must have consciously come into our birthright. We must have returned to the Father's House.
This return is a conscious act on our part.
When we do right we are right, and when we are right we are like him, for then we shall see Him. This refers to the Christ, indwelling every soul. The son of God in all his beauty and strength.
Even if our own hearts condemn us, we know that the Spirit, which gave the heart, is greater than its gift. God is greater than all human mistakes and in God alone is there peace and happiness. God is natural Goodness and eternal Loving-kindness.
"Who is born of love is born of God, for God is Love."
Without love nothing can be accomplished. With love all things are possible. And when we love, our prayers are answered and the gift of heaven is made. The gift of heaven is Life and not death, love and not hate, peace and not confusion.
And we enter this paradise through the gateway of love toward one another and toward God. Love is greater than all else and covers a multitude of mistakes. Love overcomes everything and neutralizes all that is unlike itself. Love is God.
