“To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to LIVE GRATITUDE is to touch Heaven.” – Johannes A. Gaertner
I pray that today and every day we are people who authentically “live gratitude.” As we do this, our lives become a fragrant aroma to God. The transformative powers associated with a thankful heart are truly remarkable. A heart filled with gratitude can literally change the whole way we see and experience life. It is like a flood-gate opener to unexplainable PEACE & joy!
I once heard preached, “If you want t be JOYFUL, then be THANKFUL for everything, and if you want to be miserable, then complain about everything.” I’ve also heard the quote, “It is not happy people who are thankful, but thankful people who are happy.”
Praying today that we are all humbly aware of God’s goodness and FAITHFULNESS in our lives and that we recognize our Savior’s love in EVERYTHING He has given us! Every little blessing is far too precious to ever forget to say, “Thank you!” As Thomas Merton said, “every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence a gift of grace.”
HAPPY THANKSGIVING from England!
