“Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and a richness to life that nothing else can bring.” ― Oscar Wilde

Wealth is a word that crops up often, along with good fortune. As a Christian I really do not believe in luck and I believe wealth is not necessarily money at all. I am wealthy with family and love and blessed with many gifts. 

In the same breath I know that I have to feel worthy to receive God's gifts and bounty and my heart and hands have to be open to receive what he offers.  Often many of us feel unworthy of God in our lives and stay living in the dark hiding from His light and love. How can you possibly receive anything while you are in hiding? 

Yes there are good things ahead in your life. Let today be the beginning of your life. Make this day count. Stop waiting for something or someone to come along to change things, only you can change them and find the true value and meaning in what you have.  Be positive and share a smile with others today and you will find yourself growing with compassion and joy. You will find wealth in living.

"God said to Solomon, “Since this is your heart’s desire and you have not asked for wealth, possessions or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king, " 2 Chronicles 1:11
