Listening & Gratitude

I followed a link today that said "Find The Perfect Prayer"
...and I found this wonderful food for thought.

Don't just talk...listen.
Don't just take...show gratitude.

Humbling.

Today I Pray
....that I find a better, more open way to communicate
...that I spend less time talking
...and more time actively listening.

Today I pray that I draw back my open hands...
...and instead ask simply
...how can I serve you?

Today I pray that when you speak to me...
...I hear you.

Every day is a new blessing.
...thank you for today.

:) thanks for saying that Brittany.
i'm never sure if people are reading these words -- i just keep telling myself that if even one person feels something because of it, it's worth it.

i hope u have a good day -- and thanks for visiting. come back again!
