Today’s Blessing (5.05)

Blessed are You, O’LORD our G_d, King of the universe, Creator of all things for accepting my humble offerings.

Blessed are You, O’LORD our G_d, King of the universe, Creator of all things for accepting my small contributions.

Blessed are You, O’LORD our G_d, King of the universe, Creator of all things for accepting my inadequate gifts.

Blessed are You, O’LORD our G_d, King of the universe, Creator of all things for declaring them good.

The Creator of all things finds my gifts and offerings to be a “pleasing aroma” – I turn my nose up at the grandeur of His creation…yet He celebrates the small return of my “creations”…How is it that the G_d who placed the stars in the heavens would express gratitude for my $.02 (literally and figuratively).

Today I’m blessed by the priceless offering of sunshine and warmth, green leaves and yellow bulbs, gentle breezes and fluffy clouds – all of this freely offered for our enjoyment…and in return – what? – how do I return an offering?

LORD – I glorify You – I lift You on high – may I live a life that declares Your Majesty – that reflects Your generosity – that shares Your warmth. May Your Name be sanctified!
