Today’s Blessing (4.01)

Blessed are You, O’LORD our G_d, King of the Universe, Creator of all things that You have surrounded Your people with a ‘great cloud of witnesses’ to offer us companionship and direction upon the path. You, O’LORD, have kept my every need in mind. You are good! AMEN

I’ve been so blessed by men and women throughout my life that have provided me direction and aid. These dear people have done it through their writings, their families, their words, and their love and mercy. I often find that I’m unaware of this process and take for granted those people that have trail-blazed before me. Every now and again it is necessary for us to express our gratitude to them for their work in our lives…many may not even know the impact that they have had – they so need to be told by you and I of our appreciation and admiration. So don’t just sit here…go give your cloud some lovin’

Today’s Blessing (3.30)

Blessed are You, O’LORD our G_d, King of the universe, Creator of all things that You would allow Your own creation to participate in Your redemptive work. May my hands, heart, and mind be about Your tasks – guide and direct this clay vessel that I would carry Your Living Water to those in the desert. May Your Name be lifted up and glorified. AMEN AMEN

Have you ever reflected on the sheer honor that G_d has bestowed upon us? He spoke everything into being and now has entrusted its care and continued reconciliation to us, His children…I often am amazed at the fact that G_d seemingly has more faith in us than we do in Him. I pray that we take this day to bring just a bit more order to the chaos that surrounds us.
