Devotions based on Rupp and Wiederkehr’s book, The Circle of Love
If we live each day in a spirit of gratitude our lives would be radiant. But how do we become grateful people?
Let us begin by being thankful for what is and not focus on what is not.
Let us find good even in unwanted aspects of life, without denying the presence of the unwanted.
Let us focus on the beauty of little things of life, as well as deliberate about the great beauties.
Let us find something to laugh about in every day, even when there seems nothing to laugh about
Let us search for and to see the good in others rather than remembering their faults and weaknesses.
Let us be thankful for each loving deed done by another, no matter how insignificant it might appear.
Let us taste life to the fullest, and not take any part of it for granted.
Let is forgive others for their wrong doings, even immense ones, and put the past behind.
Let us remember to say “thank you” for whatever comes as a gift from another.
And may we be at peace with what cannot be changed.
