Reflections on Gratitude

Reflections on Gratitude For our spiritual blog entry today,  we are going to reflect on GRATITUDE.  We believe that gratitude is the strongest prayer of all.  Somehow, it transcends the appearance of what's really going on in our life.  It puts us in a state of consciousness so we are able not only to feel the presence of Spirit, but to recognize the things in our life that we are truly grateful for.

Everything comes from Spirit, the One, the Source, our God.  We try to keep our minds and hearts in a state of gratitude  Gary and I are grateful for many things, large and small.  Here are a few things we are grateful for:

Gary is grateful for being retired at the age of  68, which gives him the time to slow down and appreciate the rhythm of life.  He is grateful for our rescued dog, Max.  He loves playing the piano and banging on the drums.  He is awed by nature, and of course he loves his Susan.  Living close to the redwood forest and the magnificent southern Oregon pacific coast, we are not far from a place of serenity, joy, and feeling all the more connected to our Christ Self and the Source.

Susan expresses gratitude first thing in the morning.  (Thank you God for another day.)  It makes her smile to know the presence of God will get her through any challenge she may face. She is grateful to be married to a man of love, full of Spirit, and full of joy.  (We've been married for 38 years.)  She loves the flowers in her garden.  She loves clouds.

Together we express our gratitude to pave the way for receiving gifts from God.  We share in our appreciation for a Hawaiian cruise we'll be taking in March;  working on writing a book on Spirituality which expands on the ideas we hope to express in our blog; we are grateful for our beautiful home, and for each other.  We dream about someday buying an RV van to enable us to travel more often.

We are grateful that you have taken the time to read and enjoy our spiritual blog.

In peace and love,
Gary and Susan Eby
