Today! It’s A Gift!

The most inspiring short video about practice I’ve seen this year is from Brother David Steindl-Rast’s Gratefulness.org. The video is less than 6-minutes. And it’s filled with beautiful landscapes and shots of people doing the ordinary yet amazing things people do to make their ordinary lives.   The video invites us to take up the here and now practice of gratitude.  It asks, “Do you think this is just another day in your life?” Then answers, “It’s not just another day.  It’s the one day that is given to you.  Today!  It’s a gift.”

May Everyone You Meet Today Be Blessed By Your Presence!

So, because I love the beauty of the images and the sentiments and the practice Brother David shares in this video, I offer it as a gift to you.  I hope you’ll take a few quiet moments today or tomorrow and watch.

“Please open your heart to all life’s blessings and let them flow through you.” ~David Steindl-Rast
