This is another thought that comes from Attitudes of gratitude: How to Give and Receive Joy Every Day of Your Life. M.J. Ryan speaks of how precious our hearts are and then suggests we do the following:
" With your eyes closed, very gently put your hands over your heart and allow your breath to tenderly flow in and out of it. When you feel ready, ask to be given a symbol for your heart. Hold that symbol that you see or sense as carefully as you would a priceless Faberge egg. Beholding the wonder of your symbol, allow gratitude to flow through you, permeating the very cells of your being. Make a commitment with yourself to cherish and appreciate your heart-self."
Let us continue to pray for all those suffering from the forest fires and for our valiant firefighters.
