Gratitude Challenge Day 18

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 18 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

Too often we are in a hurry, consumed by our “To Do” lists. In the story that I share in this chapter, I would have preferred to read a good book instead of spending a flight listening to someone else talk. But in the end, I am so glad things turned out the way they did. I am glad I was able to be a reflection of Jesus’s love in this lady’s life. Is there anyone in your life who might need your friendship today?

Gratitude Challenge Day 15

I can’t believe we are already half way through the challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE. 

Have you been practicing gratitude each day this month? If there were days when you forgot, did you notice that life in general seemed off balance? And on the days when you did practice gratitude, did you feel more at peace? Anything worth doing takes a little bit of work, whether it is improving your health, eating better, starting an exercise routine, learning something new, or starting a habit of gratitude. But when we are consistent and continue to sow good seeds, the harvest will be well worth the effort.

Gratitude is easy when we get our way. But then at times when we hit a roadblock in life, gratitude goes out the window. At times like this, it helps me to remember that I might not be where I want to be, but I can be thankful that I am not where I used to be. Whatever you might be facing today, can you trust God with the outcome? Please share in the comments if anything in today’s reading or video hit home with you!

86,400 seconds. That is what we get each and every day. It sounds like a lot of time. But it slips by so fast. That is why it is important to make the most of those 86,400 seconds. Love our families, spread light to those around us, and of practice gratitude.

One of my favorite quotes is: “God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say ‘thank you?’” ~ William Arthur Ward

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have the strong faith that Daniel had? Trouble was knocking on his door, and the first thing he did was give thanks to God. When trouble comes your way, do you immediately hand it over to God? Or do you live in fear and anxiety? Or do you run to your friends and complain about the problem?

Day 12

Gratitude Challenge Day 11

Good Morning, Everyone! As you might know, today is Veterans Day in the United States. One thing I am thankful for today is our veterans. I would like to take a moment to say “thank you” to all the veterans who have served our country. And I am proud to say that one of those veterans is my own father who served in the United States Army! So I would like to extend a special “thank you” to my father as well!

Today is also Day 11 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

Gratitude Challenge Day 10

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 10 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

Can you believe Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away? This is one of America’s favorite holidays. Unfortunately, there is also some negativity surrounding it. In my book and in the video, I mention how the Black Friday sales can create fights at the stores. Another thing that might also put a damper on this day is conflicts within the family. This can make Thanksgiving feel more of a burden than a gift. As we prepare our homes and our kitchens for this day, try to keep in mind that while we might not be able to change everyone, we can change our own attitudes by practicing gratitude. And we can pray that this in turn will have an impact on those around us. Too often we let those around us bring us down. But we have to learn to be the light that brings other people up. We get to decide how we will feel. So today let’s choose to be happy. Please share in the comments if anything in today’s reading or video hit home with you!

Day 10

Gratitude Challenge Day 9

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 9 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

One thing I had to work on while learning to live with gratitude, was my own negative thoughts about myself. I was my own worst critic. This type of behavior can be very debilitating. So I knew I had to change my thoughts if I ever wanted to move forward. Do you participate in a lot of negative self-talk? Are you willing to change it today?

Gratitude Challenge Day 8

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 8 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

On day 8, I mention that first thing in the morning, my thoughts tended to go in a negative direction. But one day I thought to myself, “What if God took away all the things in my life that I didn’t appreciate it?” This helped turn my thought pattern around and I started thanking God for everything I could think of. What is your thought pattern first thing in the morning? Are you a morning person or a grumbler? If it’s the latter, how can you change it?
