This blog is a digital blessing bowl, a place to record the small blessings that are often missed or forgotten but which make life holy. Feel free to add your own blessings to my blessing bowl. Or perhaps you'll be encouraged to start your own.

The baby wrens are singing

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have
into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos
to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, 
a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes 
sense of our past, brings peace for today, 
and creates a vision for tomorrow.
- Melody Beattie

My prayer today, on my birthday, is that I live a life of gratitude.  Today I am especially grateful for the cool air, the birthday greetings from family and friends, and the chance to sit outside and listen to the baby wrens singing in this birdhouse.
