A simple key......

Have you ever woken up and thought it was the best day of your life just because you could see? It's interesting how quickly our perspective changes when we find out we might not have something that we take for granted.
I want to encourage you today to thank God for the things you've already been blessed with. If you can see, talk or walk, be grateful. If you have friends, family or opportunities, learn to appreciate them. Don't go around complaining about what's wrong; instead, change your focus. I heard somebody say once, "Instead of complaining that your hair is turning gray, be grateful that it's not turning loose!"
Staying grateful is a key to living a happy life. If you're constantly thanking God for His goodness, meditating on what He has done, thinking about how He has blessed you, you're headed in the right direction. You're opening the door for Him to move on your behalf and set you up for victory all the days of your life!


  1. Hi

    I love this post. It is so true that gratitude is a critical key to happiness and peace. I thank God every morning for my freedoms, from being able to walk, albeit it slowly and often painfully I am blessed by this mobility, I am thrilled I can see and smell and touch and taste and that I can eat on my own and "eliminate" on my own - all such gifts..:-) When I breathe deeply and feel the oxygen fill my lungs I sigh, even moan as I exhale with joyous relief.
    Love to you

    I'm thankful for breathing, for sleeping, for loving, for understanding, for acknowledging, for giving, for receiving, for believing, for knowing, for the truth, for love - for, love, for peace - for peace, for you, and for you!
