There is a newly-written Heavenletter in which God speaks of the blessing of our appreciation and how the world will blossom from even a little appreciation of ours.
This made me think of what I happened to see on the news the other night.
The press interviewed some of the people who were there to welcome the train and Obama and Biden and their families.
One lady from Arkansas stood out for me. She said something like this to the interviewer: "I am grateful for all the people who voted for Obama and I am grateful for all the people who did not. I am thankful for all the black people and I'm thankful for all the white." She went on and on. This lady was grateful for everything!
What touched me most of all is when she said: "I am thankful for all the people who worked hard to lay these tracks that this train came in on."
That made me sit up and think. When had I ever thought of being grateful to all those who worked hard and whose work now contributes to our lives and our world? I never did. I never thought about it at all.
I am now.
Since I'm referring to the news, were you as touched as I was at the news calling the safe landing of every passenger on the flight that landed in the Hudson River a miracle! Since when was the last time the news talked about miracles in a sincere tone? I don't remember once.
It would appear that we are seeing the dawning of a new world, and even the major news media is proclaiming it.
