Daily Journey by Grace to grow in Gratitude & pass it on
When I’m out shopping for house necessities in a store that also has clothes, I’m led to look o’er the clothes. My sight can be overshadowed by BIG % off signs-I fumble through a rack or pile. If I find something, I examine it further, asking do I have a same/similar item in my closet? When did I wear it last? Very rarely does the item go in the cart. Further inventory seems to be the key to answer the “need vs want” question.
I’m grateful for the voice of Sophia within me; family & neighbors around me or by phone & bird songs.
I’ve grown lax in saying Grace before meals. I can begin again to pause, acknowledge what’s before me, thanking all & the Source who made it possible. I can begin again my prayers of praise when I’m the one preparing the meal.
I am thankful for the relationships I have with my siblings, sister in laws, nieces & nephews & remaining elders. I’m very grateful for my relationship with the God of my understanding.
I choose not to live shackled by fear. I hold in prayer those who are ill, their loved ones/support systems & all medical & first responders. I’m very grateful for the precious gift of a new life.
My ever deepening & unfolding relationship with a God of my understanding. Health; my relationships with my biological family; planet Earth & the many spiritual nomadic pilgrims I cross paths with daily.
Great question! I can Indirectly feel the rise of my diaphragm by the inflation sensation of my tummy & expanding lungs. There is a calm. All is well.
By continuing to trust & grow in the ability to say I AM in the right place at the right time. Emphasis is on the “am”, whether it’s my location in a driving intersection or who surrounds me in the grocery store. Letting go of my need to control my external locations & actions has allowed me to “be” more in the moments of life.
Each new day, whether it’s cloudy or blazing with sunshine and nighttime, whether it’s star filled skies or not.
Planet Earth-living in a northern US state of Minnesota I (still) see heavy snows that blanket the ground for months. We’re already experiencing some warm days & snow’s beginning to melt. I see patches of grass being exposed & tendrils of their shoots are unfurling to “live” & become green again. (If the question was “who” teaches me, I’d name some friends who’re refugees)
Just sent three traditional cards yesterday. One a sympathy note to a friend who lost her mom; a note to 90 yr old friend to say hello; and a note of thanks to someone who made me soup after I had surgery. I do send notes now & then; electronic ones too.
I’ve been elected to serve as a treasurer in a small committee I attend weekly. It’s providing me an opportunity to look deeper at my relationship with money & finances.
I will be in a 3 hour communal listening session later today & will focus on others in my circle & extended space; valuing their contributions. Today I’m able to let others who’re not like me, just “be.” We’re all in this together.
I’m grateful for the unknowns of whatever it is I’m contributing.
The gift of breathe in my lungs; a beating heart; health; to be mobile-walking unaided on my own volition. I also celebrate & give thanks for all my senses and look forward to a time of a relationship, to touch & hold another and be held.
Diane, Blessings to you on this wonderful 3/17! I’m the great granddaughter of Caroline Fallon, who died decades before I was born from a burst appendix, in a small town in Iowa, USA, 1800’s. It is from her line that my Irish blood is drawn from. All the cafes & bars are closed in Minnesota but my favorite spot (where I’d celebrate St P’s day) could provide take out-I had a heaping serving of corn beef, potatoes & cabbage-this year it was divine! 🍀🧚🏼Blessings to all ...

Ose, Beth Is one of my cherished artists! I’ve not heard of this song but will seek it out. As I was healing from my knee surgeries I left one of her CDs on constant play. Thank you for sharing this prayer. Love & cyber hugs to you & your community/country.
Hi Drew, read several entries below by Alicia Mary Ann Parr. Many of us write a reflection any day that we’re led to. Others collectively jot a note & hold each other in prayer especially on Tues in memory of a past active member-Ursula-who transcended this journey in 2019.
Ose, I’ve wanted to share For awhile that when I see your dawning sunrise I smile. Your photo/icon always reminds me this beautiful planet is round. Your sunrise is my sunset. I here in the US & you & many others living in other countries & continents. Blessings dear friend! 💟
Blessings to you as you journey forward! May you grow in Trusting “you’re right where you’re supposed to be!” 💟🙏🏼
