My Latest article on Bible Basics
Gratitude:ďa feeling of being thankful to someone for doing something.Ē Thatís the definition supplied by my word processor. Almost all definitions of the word include two ideas. One, thereís something for which youíre thankful, and two, thereís somebody to whom you feel thankful for that something.
From my heart to yours
I am so thankful for so many people and things. Physical blessings, tender mercies, protection, random beauty. Donít you think itís a wonderful thing to know Whom to thank? Today Iím grateful for my parents visiting, for my sisterís oatmeal currant scones (too good to be true, but they are!), for rain instead of snow, and new snow tires (because it will eventually, inevitably snow). I could go on, but you probably want to start on your own list.
Serving our sweet Savior,
