The Strange Blessings

For Each Day

Dear Father,

Much of what we receive in life is what we thought we did not want. We complain and cry to You, and do not recognize these gifts. We thank You instead for what holds us back from real communion. We are grateful for our complacency, and not for the cleansing fire. Open our eyes, Lord, to the real gifts of life. Help us to put down the useless baggage we carry of desire and possession.
