Everyday Blessings, July 23, 2012


Words of Blessing:

Holy One, we are thankful for the gift of life.
We are humbled by the blessings we have received,
Yet we desire to be of service in the world.
As we enter the week ahead, may we be filled with a spirit of gratitude,
And be willing to share freely from our abundance, touching the lives of others with God’s ways of justice, peace, compassion and love. May it be so. Amen.


Gifts of the spirit,
Smudged by harshness.
Flames die within.

Something to Ponder:
When is it OK for my neighbor’s child to fail? Is there something that I can do to make a difference?

Personal reflection as a new day begins:
