I Remember Love
by Rev. Martha Quintana, Senior Minister
In this moment, I remember Love. It is the beating of my heart, the sound of my dog sleeping in the room as her paws move. She is running in her dreams and loving her life. I remember Love and hear the sounds of my neighbors coming home after a long day away and I see the geese and the cranes flying into the fields. They are all loud and chatty. They, too, have been away and home after a long day. I remember Love.
In this moment, I remember Love and know peace. I remember Love and recognize that my existence is inextricably intertwined with the Breath of the Creator. I remember Love and, in this moment, I remember myself. As I experience Love, I know it for everyone else who is part of this universe. Love is the nurturing life force of each person and as each person remembers love, each experiences peace, harmony, health, goodness, abundance, and beauty. Love is the foundation of all of it.
I affirm for all of us a bounty of love and a goodness so palpable that peace is the only experience to have. From this peace, only good happens and anything unlike good falls away. The appearance of lack or limitation, like illness or poverty, cannot stand when a person remembers the truth of his or her being. When Truth arrives, a good day ensues. All is well.
I give thanks for this moment and this day. I give thanks for my experience of peace and I give thanks that Love surrounds, guides, and enfolds me in its goodness. I am blessed and I am grateful.
Knowing that Love is in charge, I release my word and know this prayer is complete. And so it is. Amen.
