Grateful eyes look at each thing as if they had never seen it before and caress it as if they would never see it again.

One thought on “Gratitude

  1. John Greenman/Dad

    David Steindl-Rast wrote about an American air raid on his home town in World War 2. After the bombing, he noticed how green the grass was. I have been noticing the color of the leaves on the ground and the tree trunks dappled with lichens yeaterday on a hike in the woods. God’s glory is in all his creation and in each one of us. Sometimes my greatest fear is to let my light shine. I ask myself who I am to be gifted with God’s light? The answer is that I am a child of God, and when I let my light shine, others may be emboldened to shine their lights in the darkness. Love, Dad
