Thankful Feathery Friends

    Newer Older

    We give you thanks, O Almighty God, for all Your benefits.

    May all beings be filled with joy and peace.
    May all beings everywhere,
    Seen and unseen,
    Dwelling far off or nearby,
    Being or waiting to become:
    May all be filled with lasting joy.

    Within yourself let grow
    A boundless love for all creatures.
    Let your love flow outward through the universe,
    To its height, its depth, its broad extent, A limitless love, without hatred or enmity.

    Then as long as you are awake,
    Strive for this with a one-pointed mind;
    Your life will bring heaven to earth.

      Did they just get in from Christmas Shopping?
      (Yeah, I get cynical this time of year.)

      They were not shopping. They were out in the fields and forests. She found that lovely autumn leaf and he harvested the bountiful pumpkin. :)
