"What if we woke up today with only the things we had thanked God for yesterday."
I recently read this quote somewhere, and I wish I could remember where, but I don't. I guess I should be thankful I remembered the quote itself...
Surely, one would accomplish little else if all our time was spent in giving thanks.
How often do we fail to give thanks? To say thank you? To count our blessings? How often are our thoughts filled with recounting a wrong or remembering an offense? How often are our thoughts focused on what we lack rather than what we do have?
What if we lived each day with gratitude?
For family. For friends. For land. For the abundance and comfort we daily enjoy. For books that inspire. For yarn. For time. For my youngest, AnnaLynn, who turns 11 tomorrow. For grace, mercy, and forgiveness.
For each and so much more I am thankful.
How about you? For what are you thankful today?
However many blessings we expect from God, His infinite liberality will always exceed all our wishes and our thoughts. ~John Calvin
Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. ~I Thessalonians 5:16-18
