Some writers are deep thinkers, but I have always considered myself simple-minded. I struggled with a topic today until I came to the word “gratitude”. Without gratitude to God in our life we live a life turned into self. From Psalm 16 we read: God keeps us safe in His refuge; with him at my right hand, I will not be shaken; God fills me with joy and eternal pleasures.

I suggest that each of us write down 10 things to be grateful to God and then pray each day for the 10 and many others issues we can give Thanks. Todd Garrison
