I was reading yesterday about a Jewish practice of just thanking God not only for personal blessings, but because of His goodness in all creation. It's likely the practice Paul was thinking of when he talked about praying unceasingly. It goes beyond, "Thanks for food, family, health and home" (although I see those as top prayer priority for me too). Some traditions pray about everything...like even in the restroom - a prayer of greatfulness for the goodness of body functions and health. .
I challenge you today to be grateful for the pure goodness of God in all things. .
For the beauty of the world and the wonder of life and our bodies that let us sense all God's goodness in creation around us.
For living things - from worms to grass to fruit. Isn't it all so good?! .
For the joys that we all can sense, monied or not. Love, sunsets, laughter, beauty, music, yummy smells and tastes. It's allllll good!
