“I will silently bless everyone today.”
A single person trying to achieve anything is not as powerful as two. Two are weaker than three and three are less able than four. Imagine hundreds pulling together or thousands, millions and more? The more who join in joy, the more the world’s healing is increased.
Let’s envision concerts, sporting events and stage productions where thousands and hundreds of thousands of fans acclaim a single artist or an athlete in an uproar of applause and joyful shouts. My own heart soars at the outpouring of all the love. I cannot help thinking each time I see that, why can’t we do the same for God? And then my mind asks, and why not for each other? And ourselves? Is it really necessary to sing a Grammy winning song, be an MVP or win a gold or silver medal to reap the rewards of appreciation from our brothers and sisters? Why can’t we honor and be honored just for who we are? What greater cause for celebration can there be than to rejoice in ourselves and each other for being God’s Glorious Creation? Singing songs and playing games is small accomplishment compared to that.
We see each other through a very dim lens much of the time. Why are our mistakes so much more valued than our holy presence in the world?
A silent blessing to every brother or sister who comes before us today will suffice, or anyone who comes into our mind. In doing this we are honoring an MVC (Most Valuable Creation).
And now smile with gratitude beloved Children of a loving God for as we honor ourselves and each other, we honor our Creator. And a Holy Loving Light shines upon the world and darkness is no more.
