….It Leads to Flying

If we could drift toward gratitude we’d be like a butterfly eased too quickly from the cocoon. No muscle would be gained from our endeavors. We’d be left weak, and dying.

We need to develop discipline to keep us walking thankful. It starts with a choice, an intentional shift in thinking. It becomes a daily habit and then a routine of life. We begin to breathe gratitude like the air that sustains us. It becomes like the pneuma, His Spirit alive  and dancing within us.

In the end, it leads to flying.

Breathe with me, and share your list of today’s joys.

Warm kitten, sleek and purring

A camera, stilling beauty, capturing wonder

Music that makes the heart sing

A difficult job completed

Friends who stand by you as you work your way through

Courage in the midst of vulnerability

Keys to tap, words to work with

Warmth of sun shining from clear skies

Wind and snows that clean the air and earth

Worshipful women, friends

Laughter, from the heart

Hope, fresh and fervent


May your week be blessed with bold gratitude, and may it carry you through,

toward the flying.

In Him,

~Kristen
