    Abundance – it’s everywhere. I see it in the trees, in the blades of grass, in the food in my cupboards, in the water coming from my hot shower, in the rays of sun coming through my window, in the contented puppies I have in my house, in the sleeping breath of my children, in the snoring breath of my husband! I am grateful for it all and I love this feeling of wholeness as I focus on what really matters to me. Thank you for providing this focus.

    I have the abundance of love in my life. My husband, my children, my cats, my children at school, my teachers at school, families. I am so filled. New friends, old friends. I am so rich.

    And I have the abundance of a beautiful place to live. Where I can hear the crows, and turkeys. And see the deer and racoons and squirrels and birds. And plants and nature.

    I am thankful for all of it. For my father who has passed. His love and kindness and humanness!

    The abundance of compassion in action that it took previous generations to succeed in bringing about social safety net. May it rise again in this and future generations.

    The beautiful Spring day here in New York took my breath away when I went outside this morning. What went through my head was the old (old) song, “No, they can’t take that away from me.” No matter what health worries or other troubles I have, “they” can’t take away this beautiful Spring day and the abundance of sunshine, lilacs, daffodils, peach blossoms, birds, trees and all of the wonderful things I are surrounded with. Only my “monkey mind” can do that. Well…we could do without the lawnblowers…
    Thank you, Lord, for the gift of another day.

    The only thing that is lacking in this world, is… used to say that the only thing lacking in this world is God consciousness, and of those who are planting the seed for the next generation.. those of us who are gaining god-consciousness.. All you need is Love love. And if if you aren’t sure, then… The proof is in the eating.

    An embarrassment of riches, really.
    Healthy food, fresh air, clean water,
    a house filled with love. It goes to
    show you how crazy this world is.
    I live a pretty simple life, yet I am
    very content with all that I have, and
    I am aware of the privilege that I
    was born with.

    Today’s quote says it all! “All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today.” –Proverb

    Today (the NOW) always offers an abundance of grace. It offers me the opportunity to water the seeds that lead to my growth. It may even offer me the chance to water/fertilize/nurture loving seeds in others. Sister Helen Prejean says, “Lavish love on others, receive it gratefully when it come to you. Cultivate friendship like a garden. It is the best love of all.” May I always remember to claim the abundant flow of grace that Life offers moment by moment.

    I share a poem I wrote several years ago: God is Being by Carol Ann Conner

    God, You are not a Being.
    You are Being itself,
    ever faithful, ever present,
    in my joy and my sorrow.

    Your vulnerability
    humbles me beyond belief
    and at times,
    leaves me lonely and afraid.

    You see, I’ve come to know my choices matter.
    They either nurture or destroy the gift of life.
    Why? Because, You have made us all Creator
    and I don’t want that responsibility!

    Why don’t You change the game?
    Just fix everything?
    β€œIt’s not possible,” You say.
    β€œI have to change. It’s called free will,” You say.

    β€œBecome the peace I seek.”
    β€œShare it with all I meet.”
    β€œIt’s an inside job,” You say.”
    β€œThat begins and ends with me.”

    I can thank God for the abundance of love I am through him. The abundance of patience even during affliction. The abundance of strength when I am weak . The abundance of kindness and strength through everything ! The abundance of provisions spiritually and physically! Abundance of triumphs !
