Treasure the Blessings!

While we are busy shopping for gifts, attending get-togethers and making delicious treats, have you found how easy it is to get caught up on our ‘to do’ lists and forget the real reason why we are doing all that we are doing? I sure have!!!

I love having the pleasure to remind you what we are really here for and bring us back to the most important thing that we can share with each other. Something that means so much more than anything that can be bought in a store.

What is this item? It’s actually quite simple:
It’s our gift of our ‘Being’ to one another!

Let me explain: The concept of ‘Being’ is a thought and feeling that I’d like to share with you that I continuously keep at the center of my heart. I think it’s an easy and joyful concept to embrace for you as well.

Make the most of this magical time with your friends and loved ones. Keep the love that you feel for them open and joyful. Give them the gift of your words. Honor them for who they are in your life. Treasure the laughter you share. Make a point of knowing that the presents under the tree don’t even begin to compare to the gift that we have of being present for one another. THIS IS THE GIFT!

This is the magic of the holidays that we seem to easily embrace this time of year. This is the magic that we are seeing needs to be embraced every single day of the year. There really is no other Grander Gift than that!

Another way to give the gift of our ‘Being’ to one another is to hold a Dinner for God.

Let’s do this! This is only the beginning! One Dinner for God will undoubtedly move to another, then another…perhaps a lunch, brunch, tea for God, you name it! And these are the things to look forward to as the New Year approaches and we can all share our experiences of our ‘God – Time’ with another; thus to be inspired on how to have MORE ‘God – Times’ that we can naturally create!

For this magical season I am giving a special “Dinner for God” book and e-book promotion!

You have until December 25th to purchase the printed book of “Dinner for God” at a discounted price on
If you’re an e-reader, “Dinner for God” on the Kindle will be reduced after Christmas for 7 full days!!!

Since we’re including special foods to these special celebrations, I am sharing an extra BONUS RECIPE with you;
Heath Bar Pound Cake!

Do you have a Holiday Dinner for God story? Please share it here on the blog and include your friends and family! These are the memories that are worth keeping!!!

If you have any recipes that you shared with your Dinner for God experience, I’d love for you to share those with me and my fellow readers as well!

Happy Holidays dear Beings!

Be Good to Yourself/Be God to Yourself!

    Your message is beautiful and made me tear up. How appropriate not just for the holiday season but for every day. The acknowledgement of our love, enjoyment and appreciation of our dear ones is something we may not spend enough time participating in. First we should remember to be “present” when we are with those we love and then we should remember to cherish them and the time we have together. Thank you for the reminder, Rayme!
