“What do you appreciate and what do you ignore? Is a sunrise any less special because its image wouldn’t make it on a magazine cover? Is any day less precious because, in your mind, “nothing special” happened? For some reason, it’s hard to be impressed with anything these days. Driving a car is a source of strain instead of wonder. The internet is already old news. Quick–when was the last time you paid attention to a space shuttle flight? Remember when that was all people could talk about? Once you take something for granted, you also take the life out of it. When nothing is “special,” boredom and gloom aren’t far behind. Look around where you’re sitting right now, and try to see it for the first time, like a child would. Think about the human potential that created the stuff in the room. Think about the miracles of nature right outside your window. Think about how amazing it is that you’re even here to see it.”
As we move into a new year, I want to take this time to thank you all for your comments and feedback. Thank you for sharing the journey with me. My prayer for us as we move into the new year is simple- In All Things may we continue To Give Thanks (For this is the will of our Father) May you be blessed with peace, love and joy. As you cast your bread upon the waters may it come back to you on every wave with blessings in this season and for the New Year.
