The Audacity of Gratefulness

OK, so I “borrowed” an adjective from the popular book, The Audacity of Hope by Barak Obama  (there, got all the copyright stuff out of the way). Today, I am embraced by and seeking to embrace more of a sense of gratefulness. It’s not about a particular place or thing or event, but it is coming from a desire to look beyond “my” world and see the great big world that has been given as a gift to all of us.

In our face daily there are plenty of things that we can “not” be grateful for, but when we bypass our own attachment and look around, there is far more to appreciate and be grateful for. I will go so far as to say the greatest thing we can do to open up the path for us to connect more closely to God is to become more grateful. Think about this today and then go put it into action!
