Thanksgiving: a day to consider a practice of gratefulness

I’ve posted from before, Brother David Steindl-Rast’s website and community. He’s a wonderful man who was friends with Thomas Merton another amazing Catholic Monk. _

Here is a video that he narrates. Beautiful!!

And this is a bit more personal:

These words are from another post I did on gratefulness and they’re quoting Paul Woodward from War in Context:

As Brother David Steindl-Rast says, whether one is religious or secular, it’s hard to argue against gratefulness. How much gratefulness we feel has little to do with whether life seems abundant or filled with hardship. On the contrary, it hinges on the degree to which we are prey to the delusion that we are self-made, or instead have discovered that life is a process in which we endlessly stumble into the unknown. Let’s never forget what a wondrous planet we live on — a place where staggering beauty can suddenly sweep up from the horizon.
