I found a book titled THE ART OF ABUNDANCE by Candy Paull and was immediately captivated by the title. As I read through it, I found many examples of abundance which I have up until now failed to recognize. Let me share with you some of the author's thoughts on what abundant living consists of:
Abundance is ... a field of daisies.
Abundance is ... a lace tablecloth.
Abundance is ... walking across a campus on a crisp fall day.
Abundance is ... the wind in the sails of a sailboat.
Small thing, to be sure. Yet the recognition of them is huge. I find that when I am aware of and grateful for the small blessings in life, I also tend to be more aware of and grateful for the large blessings.
This I know for sure: abundant living has less to do with the size of our bank accounts and more to do with the size of our gratitude.
NOTE: For those who wondered why last Monday didn't have a post, it was because I saved it to draft rather than putting it on "publish mode." I apologize for the laspe and have used what would have been last Monday's post here.
