Reflection

Life is an unfolding gift that we only see one day at a time. We do not know what we will encounter. It is a mix of joys and sorrows, losses and recoveries. We walk assured that God goes with us and trust that there will be love and strength to sustain us and beauty to delight us. It is not always smooth or uncomplicated. Yet, it is where we grow into our wholeness and spiritual transformation.

Prayer

Thank you for the gift of life!

Action

Review the gift of your life. Savor its blessings.
