My journal writing this morning was inspired by something I read from I Declare 31 Promises to Speak Over Your Life by Joel Osteen.
In the page I randomly flipped to (page 89), Osteen talks about how we can be a miracle for others by the actions we take. That really spoke to me this morning. So often, we get caught up in our own lives (our own set of challenges, our own dreams and goals) and forget about what we can do for others.
This morning I invite you to join me in thinking about how we can be a miracle for somebody else?
On the top of your journal page, simply write:
How can be somebody’s miracle?
Then just write away and see what inspiration comes out!
For me, as I wrote this morning, this is a bit of what just flooded out of me on paper…
In daily life in general, I can: smile more, be gentle, encourage others, and work on being more patient.
In service to home
As a wife and mother I have an opportunity to be a leader, a lover, and a healer. I can do my best to provide a beautiful and peaceful home for myself and my family members. I can: plan and prepare delicious and nutritious meals, I can make a conscious effort to enter my home with good energy, and keep our home clean and tidy.
In service to my students and community
As a classroom teacher I have an important opportunity and duty that I don’t take lightly. I will do my best to come to work prepared to give my students a positive and meaningful day of learning and growth. In doing this I am serving my community (I work in my local neighborhood school).
In service to my Warm Milk Journal readers
As the creator of this website, I have the honor to share ideas and hopefully inspire others to live a well-balanced life by day and sleep restfully at night (our mission). I am committed to continue to have my readers’ best interests at heart. I wish to offer a valuable, supportive, and loving space for people to visit. In that effort, I will continue to strive to improve this site in order to fulfill The Warm Milk Journal’s mission.
