(LOVE DOES HEAL)
If we were to all experience a few moments of gratitude each morning, we would not only see an improvement in our physical well-being, but we could really make a difference in how we feel and relate to each other in the world.
Bits and pieces from an article I found on line
So often we dwell on the things that seem impossible rather than on the things that are possible. So often we are depressed by what remains to be done and forget to be thankful for all that has been done.
Marian Wright Edelman
GOOD SUNDAY MORNING!
Winter is here in Northern Ohio today. Those cold winds are blowing and they are freezing for sure. I’m glad the only time I’ve planned to go out is for Church today. After that I’ll be inside nice and cozy and warm for the rest of the day.
I’ve lined up my outfits for the week and each has a nice warm sweater included in it. I’ve plenty of warm clothing to choose from as very often we stay cold from now til April. It won’t be long now and I’ll be pulling out my Christmas tops. I’ve enough accumulated through the years to have one to wear each day of December. Some are cutsie and others are sparkly. I love just about every thing there is regarding Christmas time. I love the music and the holiday goodies and the good cheer that every one suddenly seems to abound with. I love being with family and friends and celebrating the reason for it all … the birth our loving Lord and Savior.
Today I’m thankful for warm clothing and a warm home.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
There's a German saying attributed to Martin Heidegger: denken ist danken. In English that translates to "thinking is thanking
It's a choice; one you'll have to make for yourself even if everyone around you chooses to be negative. Wondering if the choice to be thankful is the right one? God thinks so. As I Thessalonians 5:18 says, "Give thanks whatever happens. That is what God wants for you in Christ Jesus
Having trouble getting started? Here's a freebie:
God knows everything about you and loves you anyway. Isn't that reason enough to be thankful?
