An Attitude of Gratitude -
Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:20
I remember telling my daughter on more than one occasion: “Do not give me that kind of attitude.” I am sure that God has wanted to say that to me on more than one occasion as well.
I realize now in my “older” years, more than ever, that I really need to have an attitude of gratitude. Certainly I need to give thanks to God for all the blessings He has given me. But I also need to express this to everyone around me: to my family and my friends, of course, but also to those I randomly meet each day like the clerk at the Giant Eagle, the maintenance staff at the gym, the nurse at the doctor's office, or the young man who holds the door open for me at the library. A thank you just might make their day. And it will make my day even better.
Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for everything that you have given me. Help me to express my thanks to others. Amen
