Counting Blessings

OK, so what’s the good news a month into the new year? I guess there’s a lot more blessings to be counted than lack. I’m alive, I’m healthy, I’m living free in a free country. I have a roof over my head, food in the fridge, more junk than I care to organize, many people who love me, many people who like me, and a few people who don’t care for me at all just to keep me level-headed. I can play golf, ride my bike, play bingo on Sunday, attend worship, read, listen, smell, see, touch, feel, cook, eat, wash, dry and fold.  I witnessed a guy today who explained hoarsely that he is dying of throat cancer and there he sat calmly reading a newspaper waiting for an appointment in the fresh morning sun.  What more can I expect of life than he does? another beautiful day of life to sit freely in the sunshine.

  1. In the natural, physical realm, ‘we possess nothing but the moment; polish it like a jewel′ E. Goudge. Appreciation polishes the moment and brings out the brilliance of every hidden beauty. Within the moment there lies a potential energy that can either harm or bless you. Cultivate the habit to embrace beauty. Moments store energy in memory. Learn how to extract the vital energy. Appreciation, admiration and affection reflect virtue and value; this is the essence of life.
