My reflection today:
“Make time in your busy schedule now and then to contemplate and slow way down – to gaze at the landscape, marvel at the beauty and the majesty of the trees, and look up until you can almost touch that big, out-of-reach blue sky. Be thankful you can see.
Be still and hear the sounds around you. Listen to the birds speaking their own language. Hear the universe singing in the world making its music in concert with the rhythms of the traffic. Tune in to those melodies in your heart for inspiration. Be glad you can hear.
Breeze in hope and joy, and feel the life-giving air. Breathe out fear and regret. Don’t worry about doing anything this moment except being where you are. Feel the harmony of your relationship with every living thing. Be mindful of the people who are positive influences in your life.
Take the time to fall in love with life with the innocence and wonder of a child.” – Donna Fargo
Jesus tells us to be like little children. In this reflection we are reminded to be like children to be grateful for the gifts that we have been given. I don’t know about you but so often I forget to be grateful for the ability to see, to hear, to walk, to talk. May God open our eyes to see all the beauty around us.?
