The Details

“Mindfulness, the awareness of the sacredness of the details of life, makes haste and trumpery impossible. It makes every act a sacred act.” – Joan Chittister

“The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.” – Joseph B. Wirthlin

Emerge yourself in the details of this day.
Not looking back or forward.
Being present in each moment, letting wonder enter to do its work.
Free from worry and consternation.

Oh, the days, years, we fritter away missing what’s present in front of us.
Blessings unseen.
Gifts buried.
Words said and unsaid.

Be grateful for today.
Seize it with your presence and participation.
The details. Sacred indeed.
