Blessing the Ordinary

Oct 29, 2023

On Wednesday, Linda Mastro will be guiding our Friends Day retreat with the theme of Blessing the Ordinary. (Click here to learn more.) As the holidays approach we tend to get wrapped up into a hectic pace and focus on those high points in spirituality, but what are you thankful for today? How does scripture guide us to have gratitude for ALL of the blessings in our lives? Are you thankful for the fall foliage today? The friendly smile of your letter carrier? A coworker’s ability to make you laugh? A commute full of your favorite tunes? A backyard full of birds and squirrels? Share with us! Comment and tell us what you are thankful for today?


The LORD bless you and keep you.autumn, fall

The LORD shine his face upon you and be gracious to you.

The LORD look upon you kindly and give you peace.

~ Numbers 6: 24-26


Heavenly Father,

your faithfulness shines through the sun every single day.

As the sun rises today,

I am reminded of your goodness and care for all things.

I praise you, Lord!

With a grateful heart,

may I see your fingerprints all over my day.

Prompt me to see you in the details.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
