Gratitude

Thanksgiving

I love this quote:

“Lord, you’ve given me so much. I ask You for one more thing: a heart of gratitude.”

 

This week’s word is Gratitude.

This is my favorite story on gratitude: Vance Gill, my guitar-playing Dry Creek friend (who I always remind that he’s only one vowel away from being famous) shared this:   “I was working one Saturday on a busted water line, and it was a mess.  I stopped, looked around, got down on my knees and thanked God I had running water.”

That’s gratitude.
And it is an attitude.
And it’s a habit (just like its opposite number, complaining).
