Gratitude is a state and we all need to learn to live in it! It is the Ninth Month and I am operating in a state of Gratitude.
Gratitude, is “a feeling of thankful appreciation for favors or benefits received; thankfulness.” http://www.yourdictionary.com/gratitude
When you look around at the world and all the madness that happens daily, we can take a moment and pause to say I am grateful.
Well what things are you grateful for in this world? A Loving God, Living Life, Lessons from Family, Learning at Work, and Listening to others.
Loving God is the first step to showing gratitude. It is the love God towards us that is the wind behind our existence. Because God loves us we owe Him the ultimate in gratitude.
Living Life is what we all have opportunity to do. Living life with gratitude is a choice we all can make by being thankful for what we are given and what we give to others.
Lessons from family are the things we learn from our elders and our youth. I often share with my Sunday School students that the day you stop learning you may as well cut your head off. My grandparents and their siblings instilled so many things into my life. Mom and Dad have given me golden nuggets of gratitude that keep me going daily.
Learning at work helps me to inspire others and encourage myself. Being grateful for knowledge make the work you do matter. Determine that you will learn something new daily.
Listening to others is so important to how we extend gratitude. To hear what and others have to say, helps us two allow others to have a say. Listening to others, shows patience and concern beyond self.
So we are here in the Ninth Month, tell me what you are grateful for in this season?
