Gratitude is something I try to weave into my everyday life. I usually do a pretty good job doing so, but sometimes I lose sight of all the reasons I have to be grateful. Sometimes I focus too much on what I don't have. Sometimes when I'm hurting, frustrated and disappointed I forget to say thank you. And saying thank you is important because even when there's a lot of stuff in my life going wrong I still have to be grateful for all the stuff that's going right. Even when I am angry at God I still have to say thank you to God for being the Source that sustains me, for being the Source of everything that is good in my life.
There's a song titled, "Still Say Thank You", and every time I hear it I am pulled back to that place of gratitude. I'm reminded that weaving a posture of gratitude into your daily life is absolutely essential to living well no matter what life may throw at you. I hope that listening to this song will do the same for you.
