|Abundance of Apricots|
Directly in front of my kitchen window is an apricot tree reminding me of the Universal presence of Spirit’s abundance. She has so much fruit that she is constantly releasing fruit which by morning is covering my backyard. This bounty would feed a family of four all winter if one knew how to make preserves. I bring some of the fruit to my spiritual Center to share and there is still plenty to enjoy and to share. (One of my neighbors asked if she could have some, I joyfully agreed, but if she took any there was no appreciable difference to the tree or the yard when I looked the next day.)
So I can actually use the prosperity of apricots to remind me of all my other blessings. I am going to consciously give thanks for the goodness in my life and celebrate it. Every time I pick up an apricot from the ground I am going to affirm that I live in an abundant universe, and consciously give thanks for all the good I have already experienced. Then when I pick apricots to share and to enjoy I will affirm that “it is the Father’s good pleasure to give me the kingdom.” I am reminded that I cannot out give God. I will give with love because I do love to give.
Where do you see abundance today?
