Last week, I wrote about the three terrible C’s: Complaining, Criticizing and Condemnation. For the 40 days of Lent, I recommended spiritually fasting from these. How are you doing? (If you didn’t receive last week’s e-Zine, ask and we’ll send it to you, or look in the e-Zine archives.)
It is very beneficial to totally refrain from the three terrible C’s, but it is even more beneficial to focus on the three wonderful A’s. These are: Approval, Appreciation and Acceptance. This means to take the same attitude toward yourself as God does. God approves of you. After all, He created you and God makes everything like Himself which is perfect good. The same is true for everyone. You might not approve of what someone says or does, but do not let that keep you from approving of him or her as a child of God.
How much do you really appreciate you? How about other people? When you add up all your qualities and know that you are a wise and loving child of God, and other people are the same, then it should be easy for you to speak up with appreciation.
Approving and appreciating yourself and other people means that you lovingly accept yourself and others as the divine beings everyone is. Accept that God is the reality of everyone and yourself. Accept that you and all people are endowed with divine wisdom, life, love, and all of the goodness of God. Accept that the presence of God is alive in every cell of your body. Accept that you are the Love that God is, and everyone else is the same.
During Lent is a good time to not only fast from the three terrible C’s, but to give special attention to focusing on the three wonderful A’s: Approval, Appreciation and Acceptance. – Lovingly, Rev. John

The Healing Word
It is important to feed your body with wise and loving thoughts and words. Tell your body how wonderful it is. Yes, it really is! It is the only one you presently have, so be nice to it! Never disparage your body in any way, no matter how it may look or seem to be. You are much more than your physical body. You are divine spirit, perfect, healthy and whole. Know and affirm this for your body and it will happily respond positively to you.
The Prospering Word
You are created to live and enjoy life to the fullest. Abundant good is part of your spiritual nature and fills your life easily as you allow its all-fulfilling substance to express itself in and through you.
Remember: God is the source of your prosperity. Treat your finances as part of the joy of living. God is infinite everything, not limited nothingness. Gratefully accept the riches that are yours by divine right.

Look Up! The higher you look the farther you can see. You can see only a few feet when you look down; when you look straight ahead you can see much farther, sometimes several miles; but when you look up you can see stars which are millions of miles away!
Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. – Sir James Barrie
I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know. The ones among you who will be fulfilled and happy will be those who have sought and found how to serve others. – Albert Schweitzer
A Little Humor. . .
A young fellow, who was cutting up in the public Library, was approached by the Librarian. “Please be quiet,” she said. “the people around you can’t read.” “They can’t?” said the boy. “Then what are they doing in the Library?”
