The word within it is "sing" - blesSING.
A blessing is a request for favor and protection. It also describes the receipt of these, as well.
I will never forget visiting the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees in Guangzhou, China. My daughter received a blessing from a Buddhist priest. It was delivered as a chant and was a very moving moment.
Also...when I "count my blessings" or feel blessed, my heart sings.
On that note, I want to tell you what a blessing it is that you take time out of your very busy day to read these strange little essays I write.
I don't take your readership for granted. I know I won't always deliver what you need, but know that I work hard to inspire and challenge you in fresh ways.
I'm curious how these two words connect in your life?
