Gratitude

Take a moment to rest in all your blessings.

Psalm 95:6-7

Enter, let us bow down in worship; let us kneel before the LORD who made us. For he is our God, we are the people he shepherds, the sheep in his hands.

How do we define God?

However we do it…it will be wrong…or at bestnot complete.

There is no way to define such a vast mystery.

All we can do is speak in metaphor, poetry or song.

As St. Paul said of God: “In him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).

God is like a shepherd and we are like the sheep.

When we trust and surrender to God’s providential care in each moment…life just seems to be so much more peaceful and full.

Stop.

Take a deep breath.

Just be.

Know that you are loved infinitely just as you are.

How wonderful is that!

Thanks be to God.
