God’s family far and wide

There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.

~ William Butler Yeats

God’s family is large and wide, with a massive number of fellow members to meet, love and honor. Be sure to enjoy God’s good company all around!

  1. With pleasure. It is comforting to know others are up at the crack of dawn just as we spoke about yesterday online (WPHS Alum Assn.). The fact that many seniors are scrambling for jobs, to make up for lost wages and the like, it gives pause to reflect on strength in numbers. And God is Good is also a strength giver.

  2. He drew a circle that shut me out-
    Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
    But love and I had the wit to win:
    We drew a circle and took him In!
    Edwin Markham

    I sent this before, but the picture
    showing a circle , reminded me
    of the poem.

    Happy living Him day, everyone.

    1. Thanks for the picture and the warm message ! Evan.
      It ‘s A “people map: ” of the world! — represents ALL mankind.
      And thanks M for the poem.
      So good to be reminded
      to draw a circle, and take him or them IN.
      And let’s remember what hymn 217 says
      Then, brother man, fold to thy heart thy brother, / For where love dwells, the peace of God is there: / To worship rightly is to love each other; / Each smile a hymn, each kindly deed a prayer.
      (Christian Science Hymnal, No. 217:2)

  3. Another wonderful SpiritView, proof that everything we need is already present regardless of what the so-called senses are reporting.

  4. Such a lovely sentiment to remember. We are all God’s children in
    One universal family. The family of Love includes all we see and
    meet at the grocery store or anywhere we are or think about.
    We all, being individual with our own special qualities, are unified in this Spirit of Love. How comforting to know.

  5. Love that picture, we had a similar one here a while back (Apr 15) in which the gathering of people formed the shape of a peace dove. This one demonstrates the One family of the loved children of God. They join together in perfect formation, some are going off to do the good works of their day and others are approaching to join in. Ongoing harmony.

  6. And this might be why Jesus taught The Lord’s Prayer using all inclusive, plural pronouns. ” Give US, this day, OUR daily bread…….”

  7. If you give a warm smile to someone you haven’t met, and they return that smile, you can
    feel that we are all one family. It is a lovely feeling. If you give that same warm smile to someone else and you get no return smile, you can know that your warm smile for that person has made an impression on them, and will aid in lifting their thoughts. From little children I notice you usually do get a lovely return smile, and even a giggle! So we can see every one of us as children of God- all responsive to the love God has included in every one of us to share with each other.

    Christian Science is simple and practical if we follow the law of Love, and don’t
    allow ourselves to be influenced by false suggestions. Love is the
    fulfilling of the law – it is a gift of God to us all, and it unites us all as One
    universal family, with our Father-Mother God supplying our every human

  8. Hebrews 13 : 1 & 2
    1. Let brotherly love continue.
    2. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

    Good lesson today everyone. The “Golden Rule”. Thank you for this reminder.

  9. Dear Evan, thank you for reminding us that we are all children of the one infinite loving Father-Mother God! Heather already mentions The Lord’s Prayer And the first sentence there expresses that all God’s children are one family with one Father-Mother Love, as it says: Our Father in Heaven – and Mrs. Eddy gives us the following lovely spiritual interpretation: “Our Father-Mother God all-harmonious.”
    Evan, I also love the very lovely graphic up here, as it shows the children of the whole earth united as an infinite spiritual family with o n e loving divine Father-Mother God!♡

    While I was shopping today I enjoyed God’s good company all around. I experienced lots of kindness and love throughout my whole shoppingtime!♡
