I Am Blessed

Rev. Kelly Isola

Say these words out loud: I am blessed.

Now say them again with a pause in between each word. I. Am. Blessed.

Now one more time with a longer pause and with your most powerful voice: I … Am … Blessed!

Even as I write the words, a smile emerges slowly across my face, my breathing slows, and my shoulders drop.

Just saying these words activates my imagination of the blessings already in my life, knowing many are not yet in my present awareness.

The Great Fullness of LIfe Part 4

As I look back on the last four weeks of writing this series and reading each entry multiple times, one question keeps popping up: Now what?

Now that I have put my thoughts on paper, gained a little more clarity, expanded the capacity of my own spiritual practice of gratefulness and thankfulness, where do I go from here? I wonder if I have been changed in any way, or if I will do things a little bit differently today.

The Great Fullness of Life Part 3

“I had a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong Hills ...” This is the opening sentence of the book Out of Africa, and it’s probably one of my most cherished lines from any book.

From one sentence that says so little, my attention is caught and my imagination kicks in. I begin to wonder what will come next as my curiosity builds.

Where is this story going?

Will anyone else be touched by it?
