99 Blessings is one of those books you will reach for over and over again. Written by Brother David Steindl-Rast, the book contains personal and original blessings for things ranging from dreams to air travel to the wind. For example, "Source of all blessings you bless us with old tunes- melodies we learned on our mothers' knees, hymns a thousand years older than the churches in which we now chant them....." and "you bless us with spiders- all the more of a gift for being so difficult to appreciate....". The delightful blessings found in 99 Blessings look at some everyday things in simple but very profound ways and give them a whole new and spiritual perspective. The prayers and blessings are crafted so they can be read by general readers from Catholics to Protestants to Jews to agnostics as they express gratitude for the things of life we find all around us. Each short blessing presents the topic being talked about and then has a "may I" sentence where a prayer is offered suggesting how the reader can respond to the blessing. "Blessings are life-giving only as long as we pass them on, so this book is meant to be shared with friends, family, coworkers, strangers and anyone in need of a few words of inspiration and guidance".
