Sunny Thoughts

We don't need more to be thankful for,
we need to be more thankful.
—Source Unknown

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.
