Welcome to Day Three of the Thanksgiving, Weekday Meditations. There should be something deeply spiritual about Thanks | Giving. Will you take 7 minutes and ponder what you are grateful for with me?
“True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.”
“It is no surprise that Jesus begins all his parables this way; with a seed, lilies, a camel, wheat, a pearl, a candle. He obviously wanted us to look closely at this world, not some other one. It is here and now, all around us in the most ordinary things, that we find the Kingdom (which he reminded us, “is here”), and that we are in the divine presence.”
“Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build
to overcome evil and welcome good.”
― Maya Angelou
Happy Thanksgiving Eve,
