When we recognize the love that’s present in an act of kindness, a beautiful creation or a wonder-full experience, we feel a sense of reverence and joy in that moment of recognition. The voice of Gratitude whispers “Thank You”.
I was running along the road, feeling like giving up,
when I heard the dry leaves rustling behind me.
Of all the thousands of leaves on my run,
these few caught my attention as they blew quickly past me,
and down the road.
I was concious that they were there just for me.
“Follow Us! Follow Us! We know The Way!!“,
they rustled with the spirit of the wind that carried them.
I tried to keep up, but they were gone.
What a beautiful moment of Grace.
Help me bear this burden,
with gratitude and grace.
Teach me faith and patience,
so that I may set it down,
in this life or the next,
and know the wisdom of it’s purpose.
With this, I give myself to you.
Lord this is my prayer.
