Grateful Living

I am so blessed to have been asked to be a part of a vision held by my friend 
She has started a blog called 
It is a space where a group of bloggers come together
in so many different ways.  Sharing little short stories, video clips, 
bittersweet tales from the past, losses and gains, 
good times and much, much more.
I'd like to share what Molly posted last Saturday.
 
This clip reminded me how powerful gratitude can be.
How wonderful life truly is when shared with others.
To open my eyes and take in what I see and can't see before me.
And, to never, never take one moment for granted.

It's not that unusual
When everything is beautiful.
It's just another ordinary miracle today. 
......A small clip from the song
Ordinary Miracle,
by Sara Mclachlan

Thank you Molly.  
Your vision rings clear and true.

Yes, gratitude is a very powerful thing. I'm very grateful for the gift that God gave me to not only look, but to really see the beauty before me - even the ordinary. When I'm out with my camera I'm often stopped and asked, "What do you see?", and it's so thrilling for me to be able to share that with someone else. Gratitude absolutely opens us up to the fullness of life!


Wonderful video!!

Thank you so much for reposting this video. I think the message is so simple and clear: be grateful for each moment we are given. My pastor says that if you wake up in the morning and are still breathing, God's not finished with you yet! Thanks also for mentioning the blog.

I'm grateful for you, my friend!
