Hymn of Nine Gratitudes

Ninefold Evolution

Grateful are we for our sorrows
for they remind us of our JOYS
Grateful are we for our heartaches
for they remind us of our LOVE
Grateful are we for our falls
for they remind us of our RISING
Grateful are we for our ills
for they remind us of our HEALTH
Grateful are we for our fears
for they remind us of our COURAGE
Grateful are we for our ignorance
for they remind us of our KNOWLEDGE
Grateful are we for our self-indulgences
for they remind us of our GIVING
Grateful are we for our angers
for they remind us of our COMPASSION
Grateful are we for ourselves
for they remind us of our OTHERS

B hopeful, B happy, B cheerful, B kind,
B busy of body, B modest of mind,
B earnest, B truthful, B firm and B fair…
B watchful, B ready, B open, B frank,
B manly to all men, whatever B their rank;
B just and B generous, B honest, B wise…
B temperate, B steadfast, to anger B slow.
B thoughtful, B thankful, whate’er may B tide…
B pleasant, B patient, B fervent to all,
B best if you can, but B humble withal.
B prompt and B dutiful, still B polite;
B reverent, B quiet, and B sure and B right…
B grateful, B cautious of those who B tray.
B tender, B loving, B good and B nign,
B loved thou shalt B, and all else B thine.
~”A Swarm of Bees,” The British Bee Journal,
and Bee Keeper’s Adviser, 1882 February 1st

But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” ~1 Peter 1:15-16  ✝
