Exchanging laughter with a friend, receiving sympathy from a loved one or receiving a simple "thank you"; these are all gifts given to us from every son of God. As we accept these gifts from others and give them, we become prosperous. We show our love for our brothers and learn to walk in peace.
All gifts my brothers give belong to me.
Each day a thousand treasures come to me with every passing moment. I am blessed with gifts throughout the day, in value far beyond all things of which I can conceive. A brother smiles upon another, and my heart is gladdened. Someone speaks a word of gratitude or mercy, and my mind receives this gift and takes it as its own. And everyone who finds the way to God becomes my savior, pointing out the way to me, and giving me his certainty that what he learned is surely mine as well.
I thank You, Father, for the many gifts that come to me today and every day from every Son of God. My brothers are unlimited in all their gifts to me. Now may I offer them my thankfulness, that gratitude to them may lead me on to my Creator and His memory.
Quote of the Day "The purpose of our lives is to give birth to the best which is within us."
