Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter
everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe
that change forever how we experience life and the world.
– John Milton
Everything is a miracle,
not just the beautiful and lovely things.
Look at everything as though you were seeing it
either for the first or last time.
Then your time on earth will be filled with glory.
– Betty Smith
Today I offer a prayer of forgiveness:
forgive the pettiness of my ingratitude…
the absence of profound thankfulness.
– Mary Anne Radmacher
I Receive ALL of Life with Thanksgiving –
I have gratitude for EVERYTHING
that has ever occurred to bring me to this moment.
I give thanks for the joys and the sufferings,
the moments of peace and the flashes of anger,
the compassion and the indifference,
the roar of my courage and the cold sweat of my fear.
I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie

A lot of us just finished celebrating a very Holy, GOD centered week. Some of us enjoyed our Spring Break and some of us actually had to work. Regardless, of how you spent last week, you always had a choice. You could have chosen to concentrate on your problems or concentrate on how good life is to you. There is ALWAYS something to be Grateful for.
As I enjoyed my Spring Break I wrote a to do list which comprised 19 items. As my Spring Break came to an end, I complained about all the items that I had not accomplished. My moral compass, The Cat in NieCat, told me, Mom, just think of ALL the items in your list that you actually accomplished. Wow! That was a real “AHA” moment for me. Here I was concentrating on my short comings, the items on the list that I did not complete when I should have been praising myself for ALL the items on my list that I did finish. There were more completed items than not.
This week, I am challenging myself to come up with TEN things I am grateful for during my day. This week I shall not count or re-live my problems, imaginary ones and the apparent ones. This week, will be a GRATEFUL week for me.
Would you join me?
I like the phrase:
Don’t tell GOD how big your problems are; tell your problems how BIG Your GOD Is!
Happy Grateful moments,
