There is a particular Jewish word that I feel is important for us to know and use in our daily language. It is the word “Berakhot.”  

 In essence, it means offering a blessing for any good thing that we may encounter.

So if we reflect on our lives right now, we could offer ‘Berakhot’ for any number of things. These could include: family, friends, spouse, kids, grandkids, health, a job, church group, a pet, a beautiful day, a rainbow, sunrise, a surprise phone call – the list is endless. 

Despite the many challenges we daily face, I am sure that we can find one thing to thank God for.

May you offer ‘berakhot’ to God today.

Living in Grace
