I receive with open arms all the love that God, my friends, family, and life has to offer.
I’ve been giving all day and now it is time to just be.
Thank you for this time to enjoy a quiet space of solitude.
It’s time is brief I know but I need it so.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I grew up in Hawaii. One tradition I just love is Aloha Friday. Business men wear their Aloha shirts, women their “muumuus” or long Polynesian dresses.
The Aloha spirit is all about love, giving, being thankful, and embracing life.
Here are seven “Aloha Friday” writing prompts for your journaling to kick off your weekend:
1. What makes you smile?
2. What and who do you love?
3. In what ways have you received love recently?
4. Have you been your most loving self lately?
5. What is a bright spot in your life?
6. List as many blessings as you can think of.
7. How would you like to give more?
Thank you for the day and
Thank you for the evening which is beginning and invites me
to relax into its mellow
and caressing spirit.
Dark. Soft Light. Red Wine. Loving friends and family. Good food.
To be enveloped in your peace, dear dark hours
of the day-
is a gift.
Thank you for your arrival.
I welcome and cherish your presence in my life.
Your timing is perfect.
It always is.
A few months ago we talked about keeping a prayer journal. Part of taking care of ourselves is nurturing our spiritual lives. If your days are as filled as mine are it would probably do you some good to take a deep breath and think of all the goodness there is in your life.
Life is good.
My prayer for this evening:
Thank you for this day. I pray I did some good work today. Perhaps some second graders I am entrusted with during the school day are enriched or inspired in some way because of this day we shared together.
Thank you for all of the love in my life. I am truly blessed. Thank you for the good food that my fiance is cooking for us downstairs as I write this. I know its nourishment will be good for my tired body.
Thank you for reminding me that although life is not always perfect or how I think I want it to be there truly is nothing better going than this very moment.
So God, on this evening, I want to thank you for my day and my life.
Baruch Ata Adonai, Thank you God!
Now Dear Warm Milk Journal Readers, it is your turn. Whatever your religious or spiritual beliefs may be, I invite you to write or think a prayer for the end of this day. The divine light is in all of us.
Have a very blessed evening.
