Rejoicing in ordinary things is not sentimental
or trite. It actually takes guts. Each time we drop our complaints
and allow every day good fortune to inspire us, we enter the warrior’s
world. — Pema Chodron
This is a beautiful thought: that we are fed
from the table of the Universe, Whose board is ever spread with
blessedness and peace. — The Science of Mind
I am so Blessed
This morning I awoke in the song; “I am so
blessed, I am so blessed, I am so grateful for all that I have.”
As I begin to sing out loud I realized how truly blessed I am in every
part of my life. Even the seeming struggles are blessings in disguise.
When I look with eyes of love I can find blessings everywhere.
The goodness of God reveals Its wondrous banquet
table of life in great splendor. Life spreads its bounty; infinite possibilities
are ours. I laugh when I think of how life hands me a large plate “all
that I have is thine. . .”
As I approach the banquet of life, the choice is
mine. Then I notice pickles. I don’t like pickles! Why pickles?
More laughter rings in my ears. Look for your favorite to fill your
plate. Don’t shame the banquet because some pickles are included,
for some, pickles will be their first choice. Make your choices from
a place of loving it all, of loving what is. And, most important, choose
to love yourself in the process.
Life is filled with choice. The banquet is open to each and
every one of us.
I fill my plate with love, compassion, excitement and celebration.
My possibilities are plentiful. I am filled up with the abundance
of life. I am so blessed.
