Establishing My Day

“DAY. The irradiance of Life; light, the spiritual idea of Truth and Love. ‘And the evening and the morning were the first day.’ The objects of time and sense disappear in the illumination of spiritual understanding, and Mind measures time according to the good that is unfolded. This unfolding is God’s day, and ‘there shall be no night there.'”
– Mary Baker Eddy

Now – as I’m rubbing the sleep from my eyes – now is the moment when i choose what kind of day I’m going to have. 

Let’s see… I think I’ll choose a day full of friendly smiles. And there will be laughter, for sure. I’m going to find something good in everyone I encounter today. I’m going to accept all the joy and love that Love presents to me – there will be no snubbing of good. I’m going to treat others fairly, and I’m going to expect to be treated fairly by others. I’m going to expect wonder and magic.

Today is a gift and I’m not going to wait to open it up and see what waits for me inside… 🙂

I walk with Love along the way,
And O, it is a holy day;
No more I suffer cruel fear,
I feel God’s presence with me here;
The joy that none can take away
Is mine; I walk with Love today.

Who walks with Love along the way,
Shall talk with Love and Love obey;
God’s healing truth is free to all,
Our Father answers every call;
’Tis He dispels the clouds of gray
That all may walk with Love today.

Come, walk with Love along the way,
Let childlike trust be yours today;
Uplift your thought, with courage go,
Give of your heart’s rich overflow,
And peace shall crown your joy-filled day.
Come, walk with Love along the way.

One thought on “Establishing My Day

  1. Yes, it is our choice…
    
    (Excerpt from the “Kansas City Star,” October 12, 1897.)

    DAY (underlined in red) by Mary Baker Eddy

    Mind is infinite, supreme, complete, perfect, and forever at peace.
    All substance, being, action, faculty, influence, power is already complete and already in evidence–and there is no other evidence.
    Law is the ceaseless, harmonious, restful action of the Infinite.
    There is no other influence and no other law. This law is the law of this day and every day, and to all its activities and duties.
    My treatment now establishes this law for this day and obliterates the supposition or belief of any other law.
    Principle governs me and mine this day.
    This day is unfoldment in which every detail and incident is but an illustration of the divine presence, power and wisdom. The law of Mind, this day, sets aside the belief of fear and doubt, and obliterates the possibility of disease, mistakes, fear, sin and death. The law of God, of Mind, is ceaseless, active Presence and infinite protection.
    This day is merely a step in infinite progress. It is unfoldment not time. It brings no belief of delay in success, or no disappointments.
    It adds no fear, no age, no decrepitude, no impairment, no loss of faculties no disintegration, no decay, no sin, no materialism, no belief in matter. It only adds wisdom, power, dominion, law and the presence of “well done.”
    May each day unfold to each of you the manifold treasures of Christian Science, and may you become rich partakers thereof.
    Remember that the power to heal is gained thru peace, wisdom, love, dominion over ourselves and good will toward men.(dominion to men underlined in red)
    You possess these graces of Spirit or Christ power only by loving God Good supremely. After this comes the recognition of but one Mind, which enables you to know there is no power or presence that can resist good or can prevent your prayers being effectual.
    While you remain in this attitude of mind you are obedient to the Principle of your being, and nought can hinder your healing the sick and the sinner.
    With Love, Mother (a pencil signature) and under that
    Mary Baker Eddy.
