Today's reflection speakes of gratitude for the luxuries of life and utlimately for life itself. Am I conciously grateful daily for the many blessings God has bestowed upon me? How easily am I frustrated about what I "don't have" when I have such abundance? I have my health: physical, emotional and spiritual. I have a brain that works and allows me to even ponder these questions. I know my spiritual life needs to be, can be, and will be stronger. God has moved me to this place in my life; a place of such calm, peace and serenity that I could not ever have envisioned for myself. I have a loving and supportive family that now includes an adoring husband.
Each moment of life is a blessing, an opportunity and a testament to God's love for me. Each "obstacle" is a door not yet opened and every lesson and challenge a blessing not yet recognized. For my ability to even acknowledge this, I am truly grateful.
