WHEN YOU WERE BORN

Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book ‘Life’s Little Treasure Book on Things that Really Matter’ by H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Today I pray, “Dear God, What is a mattered thing to remember today? Amen.”

I held the closed book in my hands, concentrating on my prayer, and opened the book to this passage:

“When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a manner that when you die the world cries and you rejoice.”
—OLD INDIAN PROVERB

Tomorrow will be two weeks since my baby nephew, my only sister’s first born child, was born. My sister has been my life’s richness since the day of her own birth. I held her in my arms knowing that I had received my most precious gift. And I now hold her infant son with the same collection of awareness. May we each see ourselves in such a way.
