A HEART FULL OF GRATITUDE

I love the wisdom of Piglet.  He always seems to know the right things to say.  Our hearts may be small, but they have the capacity to hold great amounts of gratitude.

Sometimes we have to stop and think hard about what we’re grateful for, but if what we’re thankful for today, is all we have tomorrow – can you imagine how we’re limiting ourselves?  God’s blessings on His people are countless.  He gives us life, He gives us family and friends, He gives shelter and protection, daily bread and on and on and on.

Keeping it simple …

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

This is God’s greatest gift to us and the one that matters so much, because it has to do with our eternity.  It’s not a temporary fix, but one that will last forever.  We can accumulate riches beyond belief on this side of heaven, but none of that will compare with what’s waiting for us.

Keeping Thanksgiving alive should be daily activity.  When the day of celebration ends and all the leftovers have been used up, our gratitude should be just beginning.  Fill a jar with all the things you are thankful for over the next 365 days and when the year is over, read them.  You will be amazed at what precious gifts you’ve been given and how full your heart can be.

May love and laughter light your days, and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours, wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world with joy that long endures.
May all life’s passing seasons bring the best to you and yours.
– Irish Blessing

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
