My soul is content, as if having dined on a seven course meal, and praising You is as pleasurable as eating chocolate truffles.
~ Psalm 63:5 (as interpreted by Deborah)
Sometimes we forget to say “Thank you.”
We can become so caught up in the daily grind, in worries about the future and concerns over the past, that we fail to partake of the wonders that surround us.
Our meals are “grabbed,” our food is “fast,” we eat but we do not taste.
We run and rush, swept up in mindless hurry — we get nowhere, fast. Life is a blur, a race to the finish.
Gulls surf the air currents, plum trees burst into bloom, stars sparkle, the scent of lilac wafts on the breeze….
We look, but we do not see.
We breathe, but we do not inhale.
It’s there, this world of rich delights, it is up to us to see, to taste, to smell, to touch — to enjoy, and give thanks unendingly.
If your only prayer is “thank you,” that is enough.
~ Meister Eckhart
