  • Pause for Thought

    From Rev Rob Gillion, Rector of Holy Trinity Church and St Saviours.

    Count your blessings rather than your money, as after all it is a Bank holiday. I have just had a feast of blessings over the weekend
    My son whose wedding I took in Australia is now back for a blessing, an opportunity for those who couldn’t travel to share in the excitement.

    Then on Sunday we celebrate a baptism of a little boy who has meant so much to us – he’s been very poorly and so to see him bonnie and bathed was such a joy. It was easy for me to count my blessings - in fact I ran out of fingers!

    I know we don’t need research to tell us the obvious, but I did enjoy hearing the findings recently which proves that gratefulness can increase good health and increase the feeling of optimism about the future. It is an attitude of gratitude that is so important.
    However there are times when life gets so difficult and challenging you can’t see any blessings – that’s when you need someone to offer a helping hand or a shoulder to cry on.

    Jesus first recorded sermon, the Sermon on the Mount spoke about blessing those who are suffering those who are bereaved those who are being persecuted. A list of blessings for those who are struggling.

    It’s an attitude of gratitude that helps us to rejoice when things are going well and look for love and support when darkness falls.

    Someone said, What goes around comes around, work like you don’t need the money, Love like you’ve never been hurt. Dance like nobody’s watching, sing like nobody’s listening. Live like its heaven on earth. That’s an attitude of gratitude and a life full of blessings.

    So I’m counting my blessings and wherever possible seeking to be a blessing to someone else.
