(From Stacey Robyn of Go Gratitude, but I love this!!! So I wanted to share it with you all. Thanks for being part of my community of the heart, and welcoming me into yours. Rachel)
To our Community of the Heart:
Thank you for being a part of our lives, and sharing time
in 2009 together!
May this New Year be one of Joy, abundance, good-will, peaceful
awakenings and graceful journeys. May we have courage
to look for the blessing in every moment, and the audacity
to celebrate it!
May compassion reign in our hearts and kindness ring
through every word. May our waking dreams be filled
with joy, creativity and passionate pursuits. May our
hearts and minds be joined as One; unified within, so without.
May we remember we are all Children of the Earth: kindred
spirits, brothers and sisters, members of the Great family
May we choose Love over fear; unity and harmony over
separation and discord. May we have the strength to claim
our authentic power; standing true in Word, action and deed,
and with firm resolve BE the change we wish to see in the world.
May our children see the Light of Love in our eyes. May our
elders be honored for the wisdom each bears. May every Heart
trust they are Divinely endowed with the birth-right to thrive,
and wake each day celebrating the Great-Full-Ness of life.
May we remember Heaven is within our Hearts, opening our
eyes to the sacred in all things. May we breathe prayers of
thanks into each moment, and with reverence honor the gift
this Life brings.
This is our prayer. We give thanks it is so! And so it is!
Come one, Come all! Did you know ...

Simply breathe into the heart, allowing Gratitude and appreciation
to flow thru you. Allow this wave to roll beyond you, to the heart
of the earth and to the heart of the Universe. Feel yourself
being connected to our global family, to Source, to Love.
Let go of any thoughts, intentions, or distractions. Rather, allow
yourself to BE the Great-Full-Ness of Life, fully present to the
gift of this moment and to the power of Now.
Whether you are able to join us at the appointed time, or simply
choose to spend one moment - maybe this moment! -- in the
energy of Gratitude, know that you are part of a wave of
appreciation flooding the planet, our hearts - yes! all creation -
What better way can we give thanks for this year, and prepare
to enter the New - with a heart full of Love and Gratitude!
Thank you to all who joined us for this wave of World Gratitude.
What a beautiful way to complete 2009, and begin 2010!
For those interested in joining our next wave, we're charting our
2010 schedule and be sharing here soon!
Thank you, Beloveds, for joining us in this experiment in Gratitude.
We are blessed by your prayers, notes of insight and kindness,
generous support, and expressions of Love and Gratitude.
We look forward to 2010, and beyond, and to the continued
growth of our Community of the Heart - which most blessedly

P.S. When we have the courage to look for what is right with
the world, we will find our hearts, and the world, filled with
Gratitude! In-Joy this 20 min. journey with Dewitt Jones, as
he shares his stories on finding more and more to be grateful
