Blog Your Blessings

one flower blessing
. . . . To bless means to wish, unconditionally, total, unrestricted good for others and events from the deepest wellspring in the innermost chamber of your heart: it means to hallow, to hold in reverence, to behold with utter awe that which is always a gift from the Creator. He who is hallowed by your blessing is set aside, consecrated, holy, whole. To bless is yet to invoke divine care upon, to think or speak gratefully for, to confer happiness upon - although we ourselves are never the bestower, but simply the joyfull witnesses of Life's abundance . . . .
Pierre Pradervand in The Gentle Art of Blessing: Living One's Spirituality in Everyday Life

The Blue Panther Experience is host for Blog Your Blessings.

@sandy-I ordered it. I want to read it and keep it for reference.

@sue-I think I may be a photographer... if I live long enough! LOL

@msdemmie-Have a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by.

@bluepanther-Blessings to you, neo.

@whatever-I blessed my neighbors (they struggle so), my US senator (she needs it), my son (he is trying to graduate), my friends who live far way (miss them), my readers (who comment and question) and the survivors of VT massacre.

@voluntarydeath-thanks for stopping by. This happens every Sunday.

@kuanyin-thank you. One of my favorite time of the week is selecting the blessing and a picture for BYB.

I bless all of you, who visited today. Thank you for reading my blessing.
