on blessings and gratitude

February 9, 2014

I have been trying to focus more on the blessings in my life than all of the yuck we see and deal with every day. I need to remind myself to breathe deeply and remember how much i have been given. for instance, flowers and sunsets and the majesty of God’s creation.

   

     

   

   

or family and adventures.

   

   

   

     

or a once-in-a-lifetime vacation.

the Vatican    

or building a life and a home.

   

   

   

each shared experience makes my life fuller, richer, stronger.  it is the moments that take my breath away that remind me of my humanity and keep me from crumbling under the weight of the world.  despite corruption, greed, poverty, abuse, illness, grief, injustice, and immorality, God’s love is abundant and steadfast.  he is the one who fights for us and carries us on his shoulders.  his work is not done–hold on to your hope.  perhaps a glimmer of that hope can reach into one of the darkest corners, warming it with a glow of love.

“therefore, dear children, let your light shine.”
