Happy Birthday Paul Brown!

 

Wishing you every blessing on this day in celebration of your first day on Urantia! Here is a thought gem for today for our mutual enjoyment:

A thought gem for today informs us:

 

Universe causes cannot be lower than universe effects. The source of the streams of universe life and of the cosmic mind must be above the levels of their manifestation.

Happy birthday JR Sherrod!

 

There was something gracious and inspiring about the personality of Jesus which invariably attracted young people. He always made them feel at ease in his presence. Perhaps his great secret in getting along with them consisted in the twofold fact that he was always interested in what they were doing, while he seldom offered them advice unless they asked for it.

Thank you very much, Meredith! I am now 49 years young, and looking forward to the next ten or twenty decades. After that amount of conscious time, I might be able to visit Jerusem and start my ascendant destiny. This forum has helped fuel my enthusiasm for a happy life as a son of our Heavenly Father. Your greeting makes me quite happy to be a part of this forum!!

Dear 4evr,

 

Happy Birthday to you! And here is a thought gem for this day from Paper 99:

 

Any religious belief which is effective in spiritualizing the believer is certain to have powerful repercussions in the social life of such a religionist. Religious experience unfailingly yields the “fruits of the spirit” in the daily life of the spirit-led mortal.
(1091)

 

Have a happy day,

Meredith

Happy birthday Awakening!

 

Here is a thought gem for you and for all of us:

 

New meanings only emerge amid conflict; and conflict persists only in the face of refusal to espouse the higher values connoted in superior meanings.

May this day bring you many blessings and much peace!

 

All the best,

Meredith

Happy Birthday Lee Armstrong!

 

I hope you enjoy these thoughts about the sincere religionist:

 

The marks of human response to the religious impulse embrace the qualities of nobility and grandeur. The sincere religionist is conscious of universe citizenship and is aware of making contact with sources of superhuman power. He is thrilled and energized with the assurance of belonging to a superior and ennobled fellowship of the sons of God. The consciousness of self-worth has become augmented by the stimulus of the quest for the highest universe objectives--supreme goals.
(p. 1100)

 

Have a wonderful day!

 

All the best,

Meredith

Happy Birthday Teobeck!

 

Here is a thought gem for this day:

 

One believes truth, admires beauty, and reverences goodness, but does not worship them; such an attitude of saving faith is centered on God alone, who is all of these personified and infinitely more.
(p. 1114)

 

All the best,

Meredith

Happy Birthday Brother Dave!

 

Here is a thought to ponder - a thought gem - for your special day and for our mutual edification:

 

Faith does not shackle the creative imagination, neither does it maintain an unreasoning prejudice toward the discoveries of scientific investigation.

All the best,

Meredith
