Gratitude And Grace

May 15, 2014

celebrate Jesus Son of God


I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness.

~Psalm 7:17, NIV


Gratitude is a soil in which pride does not easily grow.

~Michael Ramsey

my thoughts red

How do you feel when you go out of your way to help someone and they do not even say “thanks.” On the other, when a person acknowledges a kindness, it is very uplifting. I imagine our Heavenly Father delights in our giving Him thanks. Even though our lives are less than perfect, we have plenty of things for which to give thanks. A roof over our heads, family, friends, food, health, the skill to read, the ability to think, articulate, remember–not to mention the LORD Jesus Christ and our forgiveness of sin due to His sacrifice.

We have had Chloe all week so I am out of extra: it took me a solid hour to rock her to sleep and my mind is fried from watching Barney and Friends. I had rather be water boarded or have a root canal.
