a beginning – daily gratitude list

“At all times and for everything giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father.”

Ephesians 5:20

I don’t know the way yet.  This is just the beginning.  But a daily gratitude list seems like a fine place to start.  Today I am thankful for:

1.   A loving, present God in my life

2.  the energy to begin something new

3.  that at this moment my children are safe

4.  A well fought victory for our high school football team

5.  My husband – who is at deacon school today learning how to serve God

There is no correct number of items on the list.  Let’s write what is in our hearts.

    I am thankful to have been blessed with a daughter who has the strength and courage to take the next step in her life’s journey. Creating a thankful list will be a part of my daily prayer. Thank you, Helen.

    This is such a great reminder to “count our blessings” and I suppose to “count our challenges” as well.
