Suggested Reflection Questions:

  • Do you spend more time counting your blessings or your difficulties? Right now, name five things for which you are grateful. Say a prayer thanking God for those blessings.
  • How has God given you your “daily bread” today?
  • What practices do you find to be most nourishing to your spirit? How can you make more time for those practices in your daily life?
