Wisdom to Live By: Part 4 – Life is a Gift

Life is a gift

I love this – that sense that a) life is a gift and recognising that it is precious and of value; that there are choices and opportunities, and b) the sense that I have a responsibility to use it wisely and to give back by giving of myself to others – whether that be giving my time, my talents, a listening ear, being hospitable, whatever.
I love that sense of balance, that we’ve been given a gift but that there are responsibilities that go with the gift. It’s a good reminder.

In need of rest

So utterly tired

Worn out, worn down

Worried and fatigued.

Longing for relaxation, to lie beside still waters

Yearning to take off this bag that I carry which holds the stuff of life

And put it down for a time

To breathe

To rest a while

Hoping rest will replace weariness,

calm replace concern,

peace replace turbulence;

That sleep will indeed knit the unraveled sleeve of all my care(s)

And I might know true rest.

My prayer that I might wake, my soul repaired

Renewed desire to reach out and touch the fabric of the day –

a gentle touch that greets the day

with gratitude and grace

rejuvenation of joy and strength

in peace, a soul refreshed

Thought for today: 22 August 2017

the quieter you become...

This is your invitation to stop what you are doing and take a moment to be. To be still. To quiet your thoughts. To breathe out. To listen.

If this is the only moment in your day when you are able to stop and take stock, then make the most of it. Just for a moment. Be still. Listen…

Then take a moment to be grateful for the good things in your life…

 

I wish you a peaceful day filled with gratitude 🙂
