Compassion is in the wind that moves the chimes today. What do you hear?
Earlier today …
… I was reminded of the wisdom of Marian Wright Edelman (ht Diane Noble and Gratefulness.org)
We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily difference we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.
Please make a difference today, no matter how small—it really does “add up.”
Let awareness inspire your giving today
To be grateful is to recognize the love of God in everything He has given us. . . and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him. Gratitude therefore takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the goodness of God. For the grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference. . . .
