White Ibis: Angel Message of Gratitude

Stopping by the park for a touch of nature, it's fun to see what birds may be  waiting with a message.  A large flock of white ibis were feeding by the lake this morning.  These tall legged waders use their long beaks to dig down deep in the earth for nourishment.  

The one shown here struck a pose with one leg up before taking the next step. Since the ibis is a bird associated with the ancient Egyptian alphabet, I took note as a reminder of a recent lecture on the healing power of thanksgiving. The audience was encouraged to write down everything we have to be grateful for. If we dig deep down giving thanks for all things, big and small, during the good as well as the  not so good times, we will learn a powerful truth. The gift of thankfulness will bring both relief and release from any resentment or self-pity, creating space for the healing blessings of love and peace.  Gratitude is a powerful practice every step of the way.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful journeys,
