Honoring Our Gifts (5)

Breathe, breathe in the air. Certain song lyrics really stick with me. Air is a remarkable thing. We can’t see it or feel it really unless the wind is blowing or a fan is pushing it around. The contents of the air around us are constantly changing and yet the balance of the different gaseous elements in the air remains about the same from hour to hour and day to day. The air can heat us up or cool us down, depending on the situation. Flame relies on the air to burn and yet if it blows too hard it can put a flame out.

400 million years ago the air was much different than it is today. After all there weren’t any animals around then, it was just plants which thrived in the carbon-rich air. Over the years as oxygen became more abundant and a place for animals opened up, which changed things drastically, over hundreds of millions of years. Now we breathe the oxygen in and breathe out the carbon dioxide, which the plants use to help them create their food, returning oxygen to the air.

Honoring the gifts of air.

What a blessing the air is and I honor the very gift of life which air has given us. I honor the gift of the flame which the air provides for us. I honor the gift of the cool breeze which air provides for us. Think about how air shows up in your life and what air provides for you.

What are the gifts you receive from the air?

How will you honor the gifts the air has given you?

Simple ways to be grateful for our gifts. And of course, you don’t have to stick to our calendar – you can be grateful for anything that comes along today. This is just a prompt.

I’d love to hear what you are honoring today and how you are doing it. Check in with us and leave some comments.
