Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you. Practice gratitude. For the Gift, the Mystery, the Presence, give thanks. For the marvel of Creation and your belonging, gravity's eros and time writings its music in you, practice gratitude. For love you have received, known and unknown, the river that never runs dry, let your heart overflow. For the wonder of your flesh, your body's working and its wisdom, for sight and touch, for taste and tune, give thanks. In tragedy, hilarity, when struggling or confused, let gratitude flow out from you. In grief give thanks for what was treasured. In pain rejoice for heart and nerve. In darkness be already grateful for what will one day be disclosed. In each affront there is a blessing, every disappointment hides a gift; say “Thank you” and seek the grace. Even our woes are part of the great Gift, the mystery of Life. In every moment we are held, accompanied and blessed. Practice gratitude.
O Generous One, You Who Are, for you and for your giving of yourself I flow with gratitude.
Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
