My reflection today:
“When you sit down to eat, pray. When you eat bread, do so thanking God for being so generous to you. If you drink wine (or coffee), be mindful of God who has given it to you for your pleasure and as a relief in sickness. When you dress, thank God for His kindness in providing you with clothes. When you look at the sky and the beauty of the stars, throw yourself at God’s feet and adore Him who ordered things this way. When the sun goes down and when it rises, when you are asleep or awake, give thanks to God, who created and arranged all things for your benefit, to have you know, love and praise their creator.”  – Basil the Great
I can’t believe that this was written in 330 AD.
It’s amazing how fitting it is for today as well.
During this month let us take each day and thank God for the many gifts that have been given to each one of us. ?
