Joy and Gratitude

Joy and Gratitude, May 2012
Cindy Jacobs, Board Secretary

Dear Friends of Unity,

“We are full of joy and gratitude now that Unity of Santa Rosa is healing and creating and thriving.” This is one version of an affirmation fellow Board members and I have used since we took the Prosperity Plus class last summer. Thanks to all of you, we are indeed healing, creating, and thriving. We have had inspiring and thought-provoking speakers, including some of our very own congregants, as well as amazing musicians, classes, workshops, Movie Nights, and a Healing Fair. We could not do any of this without the help of our many volunteers. We do appreciate you. Many people comment on the warmth and light they feel when they enter Unity of Santa Rosa. It is due to each and every one of you.

I have also been using these personal affirmations: “I am full of joy and gratitude now that I am healing, and my relationships are loving and accepting. And I am so happy and grateful now that I am expressing and creating, and I am so prosperous that I live well and give freely.” More often than not this is what shows up in my life. We know that we create our experiences through our thinking and our hearts. This is one of our basic Unity principles. Fortunately, as Rev. Eric Butterworth said, “Grace, the divine favor, the activity of God’s love, works for us constantly.” When we miss the mark, we do not have to experience all the effects of our negative thinking.

Maybe you’ve noticed that Unity has made Eric Butterworth’s “Discover the Power Within You” the theme for 2012. I was pleased to see this, since this is one of my favorite books of all time and it changed my life. I’ll close with another quote from Rev. Butterworth: “Remember God is in you as the ocean is in the wave. There is no possible way in which the wave can be separated from the ocean, and there is no way in which you can be separated from God.”

Many Blessings,
Cindy Jacobs, Board Secretary
