175 – Thankfulness – Intention on the Spiritual Journey

I receive David Lose’s blog posts in email (and find so much in his writing worth reading) and last week a post came that seems just right for today.  I was already a fan of e. e. cummings and this reminded me why,

i thank You God for most this amazing
 
i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
 
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)
 
how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any—lifted from the no
of all nothing—human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?
 
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

My prayer is that each of us today, tomorrow (on Thanksgiving Day) and throughout the weeks to come can pray with one another “now the ears of my ears awake and now the eyes of my eyes are opened.”

What do you hear and see?
