According to the Celts, blessing has more to do with the way in which we receive something rather than the thing itself. Blessing, therefore, has nothing to do with luck or wishful thinking. Nor do blessings have anything to do with God’s desire to give one person a blessing that is withheld from another. Blessing has to do with noticing, awareness, having “eyes to see” and “ears to hear” as Jesus said. It’s about having the humility to treat what we receive as the gift of a God who is aware of us, and loves us beyond our comprehension.
