How we live each day is so dependent on how we feel about ourselves.  We are made in the image and likeness of God.  God has made us GOOD.  And the unconditional love and mercy of God showers us each day with gifts.  Despite that we are often unable to see or believe our own goodness.  What a gift it would be to live fully with the belief that we have all we need, that compassion is our core value and that wherever we are and whatever we do God’s goodness shows right through us.  My prayer this day is that each of us can believe in our own goodness.  If we can do that then others will see only that goodness.  Today I choose to live in such a way that if someone spoke badly of me, no one would believe it.
