Mystery, Miracles, and Magic

Share |
Last week was a tough one, but with God pushing me along and giving me strength, I made it through. My parents also came to town so that fed my spirit immensely, and a special celebration with my daughter and other relatives was enough to carry me through for a while.

My Auntie Claire in D.C. sent me a card with a simple message that just broke me down. The outside says, "I Believe In You." In the inside she wrote, "Hope to see you soon," and she wrote "2007" on it four times. This really hit me because I've been writing "2007" on all the cards that I've received this year so that I can remember the givers' messages to me during the most difficult and challenging time of my life, thus far. But it was the simple printed message in Auntie Claire's card that really moved me to tears:

I believe in mystery
and miracles
and the magic of a new day ...

Man! Did I need to hear that, and how grateful I am that she's sending those magical powers my way.

Thank you Auntie Claire! May God bless you forever.

Love,
Lisa

Thank you for sharing that beautiful message, and thank you to Auntie Claire, because it did me some good too.

Anne,
Yes, let's give many thanks to Auntie Claire. She's all that and bowl of cherries.

Hi, Alicia. I hope all is well with you. In the last week and a half I've had a sudden, amazing change of life. I moved from my depressing home (depressing because it reminded me too much of my ex) in the Los Angeles, CA area, and ended up in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm creating a new life. It's hard work but I feel great! Much love and luck to you. I know you can do it too if you need to.

Anne,
I'm very happy for you! It's always good to turn things around for yourself and moving out of town is a great way to do it. Yes, I know that I can do it too.

And will be making a move in the VERY near future. More on that later.
Peace and blessings to you.
