Gratitude Opens Us – Part 2

Many years ago I read the book Gratefulness, the Heart of Prayer, by David Steindl-Rast, and loved it. The wisdom found there can be appreciated again and again. As we approach our national feast Thanksgiving, let us ask the Spirit to open our hearts to gratitude every day of the year.

Only gratefulness, in the form of limitless openness for surprise, lays hold of the fullness of life in hope.

  1. Thank you for the uplifting poem and music. We have so much to be greatful for. My mom died oct. first. She would have been 93 Nov 14th. I feel so blessed to have had her in my life all these years. I pray for her every day, and will say a special thank you to God, for taking her to a better place. Now I know that she no longer suffers with Alsheimers.
