"The WHOLE LIFE Minute" for November 20, 2012 Take a minute to relax, refresh and renew with Rev. Karen Lee Michaels "A Second Chance"
Happy Thanksgiving! It is a pleasure to have good news to share with you this holiday season. It is about the generous blessing of a second chance.
In February, we told you the story of Rowan, the dog who was found abandoned, helpless and very sick, on the side of a road, by our friend, Holly, and her sister. The day they put him in the car it began - a second chance for Rowan.
Holly has nurtured and nourished him, provided him with compassionate veterinary care, and, with patience, has helped her cats to accept him as a member of the family.
Rowan is thriving. He is stronger and healthier every day. He is currently attending training classes with Holly which will one day lead to his certification as a "Therapy Dog". He will bring both his strength and his gentle nature to those who need him.
Offering a second chance is a generous blessing to give.
It is an expression of the Divine flowing through us -
a reminder that life is resilient
when we add love and the proper support.
If we search our hearts this holiday, we may find someone in our own lives who is in need of a second chance. We may discover that we need to give OURSELVES that second chance. Whomever or whatever it might involve, let's open our minds and hearts to Divine Love and give someone (and ourselves) the generous blessing of a second chance.
Here's a prayerful affirmation to use this week (or any time). Read and contemplate these words several times each day:
I am thankful for my Divine Blessings. The Strength of Spirit helps me to remember that all things are possible with God in Divine Order and in Divine Timing.
Wishing you God's Sweet Love and Finest Blessings,
