The Art of Deep Seeing

The art of deep seeing makes gratitude possible.  And it is the Art of gratitude that makes joy possible.  Isn't joy the art of GOD?

One Thousand Gifts

The times when busyness over takes, schedule busting sickness settles in for a few days or weeks, it is then I find comfort in the still voice that tells me to look deeper and see the good that HE is doing.  How wonderous it is, to stop and ponder this, "what am I Lord that You are mindful of me?  That You still speak, and call, and draw me close?"

Counting is like following the long rivers, rushing wide and rapids foaming in places, slowing down to a trickle in others, while even at times it seems the river bed is dry.  But no, look closer, life is flourishing even there.
