Now that the last of our Christmas decorations are safely stored away, maybe it’s time to make an accounting of what we are truly grateful for. This might be good health, a warm house, and a full belly, or it might be your children, your friends, or your work. It’s up to you to really dig deep and find gratitude for a God who loves us so radically, delighting in our attempts to love one another and to love God!
Find a small piece of paper and write down three things for which you are grateful. I like to carry this around in my pocket so I can look at it occasionally. Once they are written down, step outside, and reach up to the sky, thanking God for these things for which you are grateful! Repeat every day or as often as you want.
