The Gift of Life

Speaker- Alan Jones
Thou has seen and known my heart, seeing into every part
Nothing hidden here from Thee, ever Thou embraceth me
Even deep in darkest night, Thou would guide me with Thy Light.

In my tradition we try to practice dying every day so that we may be fully alive. What I understand of my prayer life is to place myself on the threshold of death, to participate in my dying, so that I may live each day and each moment as a gift. What I cultivate is a grateful heart; each moment then becomes a new thing. My gratitude comes from the sheer gift of life itself.

-from The Gift of Life
