Repost/For This, I Am Grateful

I’ve learned to quieten my mind, to breathe in deeply and exhale for long periods of time. For this, I am grateful.

I cherish the ability to examine life before me…to examine myself-to correct when needed and to love myself. For this, I am grateful.

To reflect on what the present offers is to partake in life’s richest portions. For this, I am grateful.

I am thankful for the varied expressions of God’s love through individuals I call family/friends, each pours a portion of blessings my way. For this I am grateful.

Disappointment and seeming loss has turned for my good. For this, I am grateful.

So much I would have overlooked, had I not experienced that which is often referred to as failure. For this, I am grateful.

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” ~2 Corinthians 4:18 (NIV)

Although it can be beneficial to share in the abundance of things/stuff – life and wealth exists beyond that which is seen or that which is approved by others. For this, I am grateful.

  1. From the time we shared space in a sacred assembly years ago, we were joined by inspiration & impetuousity. Since then, we have traveled many roads together: sipped & supped together, sobbed & snotted together, reasoned & railed, laughed & lounged together. We have rooted & rebuked, suffered & sacrificed together. We have run toward the paths less traveled, destroyed idols of self conceit…laid dead egos to rest, yes we have. Yes, together we have surrendered ALL   To. Be. Reborn. Together. And for this, I am grateful.❣
