Sharing Our Gifts

for the week of July 6, 2015


As we begin another week with nature declaring indescribable beauty may we pause to reflect on the beauty of our own lives.  After a weekend of celebrating freedom, may we be reminded of personal freedoms won.  As we have reminisced over our nation’s battles, with their losses  and wins, may we take the long view back over our lives to celebrate struggles won, joys that abounded, and gratitude for this precious journey we call life.  Help us, O Divine, to remember, daily, that falling down is not failure  but that failure is remaining down.  Help us always to recognize the helping hand that lovingly supports us.  May we seek, this week, to be a loving hand to another.
