“God blesses every gift you give to Him, and every gift is given Him, because it can be given only to yourself.  And what belongs to God must be His Own.  Yet you will never realize His gifts are sure, eternal, changeless, limitless, forever giving out, extending love and adding to your never-ending joy while you forgive but to attack again.”

The Self to whom I’m grateful is not Mari Dole, who is a character in the script the ego has written. The Self to whom I offer thanks is God’s One Creation, of which everything is a part.

Now, I don’t always remember this. In fact, I’m usually oblivious of what I said above, and so I sometimes feel resentful, peeved, etc. when gifts I give are unacknowledged. That is why I’m  attempting to make it a conscious habit to give thanks for the experiences, both positive and negative which I have. For example, I give thanks for the person (who is also part of the Creation) with whom I had a difficult relationship for fifty years. I know I’ve written of this before. I also give thanks for loving relationships I have now, including all of those I share with you. Thank you all.

Blessings,

Mari

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
