"Eucharist [thanksgiving] is the state of the perfect man. Eucharist is the life of paradise. Eucharist is the only full and real response of man to God's creation, redemption, and gift of heaven."
"Gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder."

January 22nd: "A Gift Wrinkled, Smoothed, Unfolded"
(#2263 The Boy singing in the bathroom)
(#2264 The Eldest's polka dot socks over her pants)
#2265 Wrinkled: Laundry, with time to get it done
#2266 Smoothed: Unloaded grocery bags
#2267 Unfolded: God's Tent for the Sun
"In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
Like a champion rejoicing to run his course."
Psalm 19: 4-5
