God Draws Nearer
This morning when I arrived at the stop in Dybbelsbro where I get off for the short walk to the Copenhagen Sprog School, I hurried to the elevator which is little more than a lift with just enough space for two or three people, and a bike. I looked back as I was about to press the button for the door to close, but I saw a nice plump blond lady hurrying toward the elevator. I pressed the button and held the door for her. She was grateful. I was happy to do it.
While we rode up to the surface street at Ooksehallen, she complimented me on my attire. I was flying my colors today–rainbow jacket and pants, with a three-color skull cap. It was a pleasant 30 seconds or so.
Once at the top, she wished me a good day and gave me a hug and a kiss for my kindness, saying, “tak sku’ du ha’!” It was such a surprise, as many Danes are standoff-ish with strangers and “mind their own business” as a religion. I told her to have a good day and to my surprise,as I came to the corner light and looked about, the scene was replete with people in red, cars and trucks the same. It confirmed again my belief that God speaks to us in ways we can understand, and we can ask for the color or thing we want to see as a fifth-reminder or proof of our ability to manifest spiritually.
I was filled with such reverence, that I stopped at the park bench and sang aloud, “Nearer My God to Thee” an old gospel song from my early rearing in Baptist church. Then as I prayed for all and gave thanks,other people passed near to me in red jackets and clothing. I felt so blessed.
And this was following a dream last night of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. coming to visit me. What a touch of divine majesty! Here’s your Daily Word:

My heart is the abode of Love.
In a moment of quiet contemplation, I fix my thoughts on my heart center, and very quickly, I feel the love of God. Allowing my attention to rest here for a few moments, I declare silently: I am the abode of Love.
Love is synonymous with God. It is unfailing and unchanging, mine to draw upon at any time. When I allow Love to permeate my entire being, it becomes a powerful force, driving out any doubt, sadness, or fear.
My heart fills with the mighty magnetic force of Love, and I am empowered to do only good, to share only love. My every thought, word, and action express the love of God in me. Aglow with God’s love, my heart becomes a magnet attracting good from every direction.
Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.—Proverbs 4:23
