Finding Gratitude In Unexpected Places

Today, I want to share my experiences from the last few days. Not in any one particular story, but more of a generalized trend that I’ve seen occurring from multiple sources.

One of the problems that many of us must discover within ourselves, and learn to overcome is an issue of judgement. I am no different, and more than a few times during the course of any given day, I find myself having to shift my thoughts to something more positive that what my “auto-pilot” has me thinking.

Over the course of the last few months, there have been situations in my life that, while I have not liked the situation and would rather have not had to deal with it, I accepted the situation as it was. I won’t tell you that I didn’t have any judgmental thoughts about what was happening. I did. But I accepted the situations as they were and moved forward with other, more important things.

This past weekend, I was surprised in all three circumstances. Not all the events that happened were big surprises, but they were all surprises none the less. In all of the situations, not once did I expect to see changes made. And yet, in all three, the Spirit was showing me that changes in others can be manifested simply by my accepting things as they are and prayers for a better circumstance.

Today, I am very grateful to say that I am happy to find unexpected changes in places I never thought I would see them. I continue to hope and pray for those people involved. I pray that they continue to grow in the Light of the Spirit, and bring forth beauty in circumstances following them.

Blessed Be.
