“Thank you Lord for the color green / That grafts me into the things that grow / and remind us of all that’s good in your creation.”
Dorian and David reflect on the spirituality of gratitude in our lives.
“For the leaving of birds in formations to the south / And the expectation of new things to come…”
“For wisps of clouds converging on the noon horizon, where heaven touches earth / And the savage storms that jar the night, but leave us with morning dew…”
“We don’t have to go far to find the treasure we are seeking. There is beauty and goodness right were we are. And only when we can see the beauty and goodness that are close by can we recognize beauty and goodness on our travels far and wide…“ -Henri J.M. Nouwen
