Is the sun shining?Go outside and lift your hands to the sky and your heart to God. Breathe in the glory of the day.
Is it raining?
Scoot your face up close to a window and watch the rain drops tap the glass and gently slide their way down to the sill. Breathe in the wonder of the rain.
Are the moon and stars out bright and full?
Stand still and full and let the pale moonlight wash your lifted face. Breathe in the beauty of the stars.
Breathe in the glory of a dish rack full of freshly cleaned glasses and plates.
Breathe in the wonder of a cool autumn breeze.
Breathe in the joy of laughter in a messy living room.
Breathe in the comfort of holding love close.
Open the curtains.
Pour a cup of tea.
Take a walk.
Stand in the rain.
Sing in the shower.
Run to greet your love at the door.
Smell a flower.
Press a leaf between the pages of a book.
But whatever you do, take the time to breathe in the glory and the grace.
Because it is a gift.
So find the gifts.
Create those moments of wonder.
Slow down for just 30 seconds
And breathe in the glory.
They are there if you just open your eyes and your heart.
And let the joy of thanks and grace grow great in your heart.
