Thank the Sun | 52 Acts of Grace | Week 21


acts of grace week 21 copy

When we begin each day with gratitude, each day becomes brighter and our hearts become lighter.

No matter what is happening in our lives, we can always be thankful for the sun and moon and stars and earth. For this planet that carries us around the sun. For the sun that nourishes life on earth, for the moon that pulls the tide in and out. For the stars that light our way at night.

Whatever is happening in your life today, take a moment to thank the sun for the divine pact it made with earth long ago. Thank it for greeting you every morning when you arise, for shining upon you and all of earth, for feeding the life around you.

Practice saying a simple prayer or blessing to the sun every day this week.

“Thank you Sun for shining so brightly. Thank you for the light that feeds the plants and animals and gives me vitamins my body needs. Thank you for your warmth. I am grateful.”

I believe in wonder. I believe we are all magnificent beings of divine beauty. I believe we can make a difference in this world, through every act, word, thought. I believe we create ripples with everything we do and say and want to inspire everyone to use their ripple to create a better world for everyone. I'm grateful you're here.

  1. I absolutely AGREE that starting any week, or every day, with affirmations is valuable. Sun worship is somewhat out of vogue – as religion or as something not trumped by skin cancer fears …

    OK, I’ll get serious.

    Gratitude affirmations for me – need to ‘things within someone’s influence or control’, i.e. something I did, or something someone else did, which make my life, my world, my outlook “better”, and that’s worth waking up for/to every morning

  4. Louise, I don’t, as a rule, participate in Awards these days. However, I was nominated and couldn’t refuse this one…!
    I have nominated you… I was inspired to do so… 🙂
    No obligations, of course….
