For me, part of being grateful is to REMEMBER...
Psalm 143:5 says "I remember the days of old; I meditate on all that you have done; I ponder the work of your hands."
I read Psalm 145:10 this morning..."All your works shall give thanks to you, O LORD, and all your saints shall bless you!"... and I thought of this plant that I saw yesterday, just beginning to show new life. And I thought how All His Works give thanks to Him...why? Because his works are full of life, truth, beauty...and we, his people, bless Him!!! Its about Who He is...and meditating on that alone makes me feel grateful, regardless of What I am going through.
I am grateful to live today to bless His name and see the work of His hands around me.
A few of those "works" are being naughty, so I am gratefully going to put them down for nap!
Visit Linny if you can and read her grateful notes.
