Make Blessing the Center of Your Day

As you go through this day, make blessing the center of your day!

To bless means to wish, 

unconditionally and from the deepest chamber of your heart,

unrestricted good for others and events;

it means to hallow, to hold in reverence,

to behold with awe that which is always a gift from the Creator.

He who is hallowed by your blessing is set aside, 

consecrated, holy, whole.  

To bless is to invoke divine care upon, 

to speak or think gratefully for, 

to confer happiness upon,

although we ourselves are never the bestower

but simply the joyful witnesses of life's abundance.

To bless all without distinction is the ultimate form of giving,

because those you bless will never know 

from whence came the sudden ray

that burst through the clouds of their skies,

and you will rarely be witness to the sunlight in their lives.  

When something goes completely askew in your day,

when some unexpected event upsets your plans

-- and upsets you -- burst into blessing.

 . . . Trials are blessings in disguise, 

and hosts of angels follow in their path.
