"Being Grateful"

January 2018

Be thankful in all circumstances,

for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
- - - 1 Thessalonians 5:18


Thankfulness isn't just for Thanksgiving !


We take stock of the monumental moments - that promotion at work, spending time with loved ones - but what about the tiny treasures ?


THERE'S SOMETHING TO BE SAID FOR THE RARE MOMENTS THROUGHOUT THE DAY THAT MAKE YOU SMILE. 


It's the ordinary things that make life extraordinary


Be Grateful for . . . .
Your Pet
Good hair days
That movie that makes you laugh
Your health
Your close friends
When your favorite song comes on the radio at the perfect moment
A really comfortable chair
Chocolate
Comfortable shoes
Your parents
Sharing a smile with a stranger
Thank you notes - it feels just as good to send one as it does to get one.
A good night's rest
A long, hot shower or bath
YOURSELF. You deserve all the happiness and kindness in the world - don't forget it.


💏Whenever we feel deeply blessed by our good fortune, by our success or by the kindness of others, this is a good time to lift up a prayer of gratitude to God. Such blessings are around us all the time, and stopping to express our thankfulness to God is a good way to remind ourselves of just how much good fortune we have in our lives.


LET US PRAY -- Thank you Lord, for the blessings you have bestowed on my life. You have provided me with more than I could ever have imagined. You have given me family and friends who bless me every day with kind words and actions.
Also, thank you Lord, for keeping me safe. And Lord, I am grateful for keeping those around me safe and loved.
I am very grateful for all of your blessings in my life, Lord. I pray that you remind me of just how blessed I am and that you never allow me to forget to show my gratitude in prayer and kindness.
IN YOUR NAME, AMEN.
