Gratitude For Everything
Marilyn O’Leary, RScP
I am reminded today of the exhortation to be grateful in all things. How often do we judge something as “bad” only to later see the blessing in it.
As I remember that all is God, Spirit, Divine, whatever you call that ineffable Presence, I am reminded that all is Good, and that Goodness is present in, through, and around me.
As I breathe in this belief, I am confident that the possibility of knowing this is as true for everyone who reads these words as it is for me.
God is Goodness, God is Love, and Goodness and Love are in me and in my affairs and I am grateful.
Just remembering this truth makes me breathe easier and brings me peace.
What a joy, then, to see the blessing in all things.
As the wise person said, if you only say one prayer, let it be “Thank you.”
And so it is.
