Yesterday I set up a prayer activity in our prayer chapel. I asked people to think of One Good Thing, thank God for the blessing, write it on a (pre-cut) flower and hang it on the tree. Just a day later the tree is covered in wonderful blessings. My favourite today is Mommy and Daddy love each other. What a blessing, however old we are! And a blessing, like so many of them, which we might take for granted unless its taken away from us.
I thought perhaps that you, our website visitors might like to join us by using the ‘comments’ link and adding your own ‘One Good Thing’. You are welcome to add one each day and use it as an opportunity to count your blessings, even on days when there seems so much difficulty you can look for something simple to be thankful for.
I have repeated some which have been posted on our tree, they are all anonymous and on public view:
