Thanksgiving

MossToday’s Word: ‘Thanksgiving’ as in… this ancient prayer:

“Gracious God, we offer with joy and thanksgiving what you have first given us – ourselves, our time and our possessions, signs of your gracious love. Receive them for the same of him who offered himself for us, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”

I believe that we continue to thrive as grateful people who practice gratitude as a spiritual discipline, remembering with joy and thanksgiving that all we have – all that we have, everything, is a gift of grace.

When we acknowledge that the breath we just took is a gift – that one, that one too, and that one as well, our eyes open, our hearts enlarge, our lives take on a rhythm of gratitude that invites us into a wider, more expansive place of unhindered, unreserved thanksgiving. I am thankful today for the little things; like thick moss covering an ancient log near a remote lake on a mystical island in an enchanting place on an amazing planet being created by a wildly generous Creator.
