#Lord Jesus God. We make mistakes. We think blessings go to the best and the brightest. We think blessings are prizes, instead of understanding that blessings are salve for the wounded, solace for the lonely, strength for the suffering, rest for the weary. We think blessings are shiny, sparkly things to rub in other people’s faces, instead of seeing them as the wonder of the child looking at a cloud, the sweet love from the overlooked little old lady, the strength of a survivor sitting with someone else in the same pain and trauma. Lord we do not understand blessings, so we don’t think there’s enough, but that is our humanity showing. Help us to discern when blessings peak through. Forgive us when we forget to share our blessings, and love us so we can do better we pray.
