Yesterday’s post was in reference to Hemingway’s memoir, A Moveable Feast, his pivotal memories that have traveled with him. Trust travels with me. So does gratitude: portable and transformative. It wears beautifully.
Gratitude is the most passionate transformative force in the cosmos. When we offer thanks to God or to another human being, gratitude gifts us with renewal, reflection, reconnection. ------Sarah Ban Breathnach
More than being thankful of gifts, gratitude is an attitude, a discipline. The discipline of gratitude is the explicit effort to acknowledge that all I am and have is given to me as a gift of love, a gift to be celebrated with joy. ----Henri Nouwen
Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good. -----Maya Angelou
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. ------1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
More on Gratitude, one of my favorite topics.
A grateful mind is a great mind that attracts great things. -------Plato
