When persons share themselves and their ideas in conversation, joy abounds, dreams and hopes are revealed, and problems are uncovered. Conversation in its own way has a healing quality. It refreshes and stimulates. What a simple, treasured gifts.
Gifts that make for meaning and joy include the world's sounds, those of nature, and those born out of human creativity. For instance, there is the symphony of silence and the music of the city. Perhaps too many listen to both and hear only silence or noise. We miss the gifts. Perhaps because so many ordinary riches are bestowed upon the whole human family, they are frequently overlooked. Even those poor in material goods are rich in the countless gifts of God.
Each day I discover more of God's graciousness and generosity.
