Your Monday blessing

Our world is constantly evolving,
changing all the time,
and it happens so gradually and so mysteriously,
that we mortals can but wonder at the way
that rocks may become life,
and dinosaurs may become birds,
and we become…who knows.

We are constantly evolving,
changing all the time,
and it happens so gradually and so mysteriously,
that we can but wonder at the way
that despair might soak up a ray of hope,
that sorrow can turn into wisdom
or even joy.

We cast our lives in awareness
that yet more changes will surely come,
and the only thing we can be certain of,
other than change,
is that we have already been so fortunate
to inherit the many blessings of being alive
on this beautiful earth:
the blessings of wonder, the blessings of
connectedness with our neighbor,
of being a part of it all,
the blessings of gratitude.
It’s a beautiful day,
it’s a beautiful earth,
and we are glad to be here.
