January 12th - Heart to Heart
The biggest disease this day and age is that of people feeling unloved.
One simple way to keep your heart open to love is to be grateful. Get a pen and a piece of paper. Count your blessings. Write down what you are grateful for. For example:
I am grateful for the gift of life to experience how to live, love, learn, and grow.
I am grateful for the all the challenges I face and all the mistakes I've made. The experiences have taught me to become wiser and stronger.
I am grateful for those who hurt me because they teach me to be compassionate, loving, and forgiving.
There are many things in life to be grateful for. A heart that is filled with love and gratitude is a powerful magnet of love. When you are grateful, you are happier
We could quickly add a lot of celebration time to our lives if we would take the time to give thanks when God does amazing things for us. An attitude of gratitude shows a lot about the character of a person. It keeps God first, knowing that He is the source of every blessing we receive. Gratitude is never about feeling entitled, it’s an attitude that says, I know I don’t deserve God’s goodness, but I am sure grateful for it.
Love is a celebration of life !
