BEHOLD: Abundance

I was walking along the road by the cemetery in my village trying to practice contemplation as Christine Valters Paintner describes it in her book "Eyes of the Heart."  I thought I heard whispering behind me. I turned and BEHOLD...all these little wildflowers raised their tiny voices in a single word: Abundance! How joyful they were, and they begged me to be joyful as well. Receiving their blessing, I continued on and spent the rest of my walk pondering the abundance in my life and offering up gratitude for it. Thank you, sweet wildflowers, for reminding me that my life is truly overflow(er)ing with blessings.
