We don't need more to be thankful for,
we need to be more thankful.
Approach today with a grateful heart.
Those were the "headlines" from one of my email devotionals yesterday.
Sometimes, I get bogged down with the broken things. I tend to see the barbs rather than the blossoms.
I see the best-laid plans that have fallen by the wayside as surely as fallen trees ...
... instead of the opportunities and blessings blossoming all around me.
It requires is a change of focus - a change in attitude.
Yesterday, Ann Voskamp, the author of One Thousand Gifts wrote on her blog, A Holy Experience:
It’s those who have given thanks till they know their cup is full — who can then pour their lives out like a gift.
I don't need more to be thankful for,
I need to be more thankful.
