A Hundred Little Blessings

Reflect

When a bird flies overhead or you hear a child laughing or someone you don’t know smiles at you genuinely, do you count these moments as blessings? God sends tiny graces our way every day. Can you spot them?


Pray

God of all graces,
I often have blinders on
and cannot see the
moments of joy and love
that encircle me.
Help me to recognize
these for what they are:
Quiet ways that you enclose me in love.
Give me eyes to see them
and a heart to know them.
Amen.


Act

Days can go by without people hearing a kind word. Send this prayer to someone who’s a blessing to you. Let them know that you are grateful for them in your life.
