Singing Fierce Gratitude | Daily Poems of Abundance, Generosity, and Gratitude (Datsko de Sanchez)
Praise for Singing Fierce Gratitude
"Into our current topsy-turvy, whirling dervish of a world, Tina Datsko de Sánchez offers a miracle: the resurrection of Rumi and Hafiz's voices. She has given us a doorway—90 doorways, to be exact—[to] step over the threshold and reveal the ordinary as extraordinary, right where we are, without delay."
—Molly Baskette (excerpted from the Foreword)
Feast on God's Goodness
Singing Fierce Gratitude: Daily Poems of Abundance, Generosity, and Gratitude is a reminder to savor, to feast, and to share the abundance of God's goodness. Each poem challenges our resignation to the mundane with revelations of delight: flowers greeting the new day, rain nursing the hungry earth, dreams dancing before us, and always—the Beloved.
Focus your spirit on appreciation and generosity with inspiration from Tina Datsko de Sánchez:
When all is given to us,
there's nothing left to do but give back...
When we inhale pure love from God.
we exhale back caring and generosity.
Singing Fierce Gratitude is the fourth in a four-book series of interfaith spiritual poetry by Datsko de Sánchez.
