For What We Are About to Receive

5 Comments

Even the devout
religious leaders
wanted to know:
WHY?
Surely there is a logical explanation.
Can’t be a crapshoot!
Must be karma.

And yet . . .
the answer that came:
BECAUSE.

It’s not the disease
for which we give thanks.
It’s what the master
can do
with a broken pot.

give thanks

Give thanks with heart and soul and mind.
Give thanks, for weakness begets strength and wings are born of dreams.
Give thanks, for seeing is not truth and truth is mighty as mountains.
Give thanks, for the work of hands,
……………………for the journey of feet,
……………………for the coming in and going out.
Give thanks, for the song of joy,
……………………for the cry of sorrow,
……………………for the silence of wonder.
Give thanks for a new day,
…………………..for a restful bed,
…………………..for a life well lived.
Give thanks.
