My reflection is from Living Faith:
So (Jesus)said to them, “Cast the net over the right side of the boat and you will find something.” John 21:6
“My brain seems wired to notice imperfections. When I walk into a room, I immediately spot stains in the rug, pictures hanging askew and the fraying edges of curtains. My daughter, on the other hand, delights in beauty. She can walk into the same room and see instead a vase of wildflowers, a handmade quilt and the way sunlight slants through the window. I admire how attentive she is to the endless goodness all around her. It reminds me that our God is a God of abundance. He promised Abraham and Sarah descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky. He multiplied a few loaves and fishes to feed thousands. He called us to forgive seven times seventy times.
This Easter season, let’s pay attention to the abundance. Today alone, we will take thousands of breaths. Each one is a gift from God!
Generous God, make me mindful of the many good gifts you give me today and every day.” Karla Manternach
God‘s gifts are all around us and within us. Let us take time and thank God for the abundance of graces.?
