Thought for the day.

“We live in a world full of wonders.  Today I will pay attention to their gentle wisdoms.”

Simple quote but very meaningful.  We are always surrounded by so many wonderful blessings, especially in nature.  Whether it be birds, or trees, flowers, or even a thunderstorm, we have an opportunity each and every day to pause and ponder these beauties. 

Sometimes we simply enjoy their beauty or complexity while other times we go a little deeper and meditate on their origin, trying to discern any meaning we can derive from their existence or any parallels to our own lives that might free us to relax or find peace in that moment.

In other words: “sometimes we have to stop and smell the roses.”  …. Or sunflowers.

Thought for the day.

“The kindness people have done crosses their path later on, should they stumble, they will find support.”

I believe this reading from Chapter 3 of Wisdom of Ben Sira to be completely true.  It is a source of inspiration for me today, and I hope to offer kindness today at every opportunity.

It also reminds me of a wonderful verse of poetry from  Alice Cary’s poem Nobility. 

“There is nothing so kingly as kindness,
And nothing so royal as truth.”
