“I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you.”

Romans 1:8 (NLT)

 It seems that gratefulness is a word that gets lost in all the rush and challenges of the day.  Gratefulness is defined as “warmly or deeply appreciative of kindness or benefits received; thankful.”  William A. Ward said, “God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say ‘thank you?’”  It was Margret Cousins who said, “Appreciation can make a day – even change a life.  Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.”


I declare that I will make a concerted effort to become more grateful,

consciously watching for those opportunities to express my thankfulness.
