Today’s the day … the final gratitude challenge question day. However, this is not the answer to just one question … Gratitude is the answer to every question. In times of stress and darkness being grateful for the smallest things turns on the light. Focusing on the light rather than the darkness lifted my spirit and gave me hope. In times of happiness and joy gratitude multiplied my joy with contentment and peace. In my times of uncertainty giving thanks for the solid things I do know increased my faith and patience.
Taking this 30 day gratitude challenge has again opened my mind and heart and soul to the abundance in and around me. The opportunity to ponder the huge things and the small gratitudes day by day has given me such a lightness of heart and I’ve been happier, even when the crazies happen. I fear less and hope more. My eyes looked up from the paths of my feet; looked up at the light, and left the darkness behind (even if just for a short time).
My thought for the day is this: I will wrap gratitude around every thought, in every blessing and through every trial and every pain, and I will see the abundance of blessings overflow in my heart and in my life. I found gratitude in all times & places. I encourage you to seek out the gratitude in your life. And like one of my favorite hymns “Count your many blessings name them one by one. Count your many blessings see what God has done”.
