Thanksgiving Day: A Celebration of Gratitude

Happy Thanksgiving Beloved. It is my heartfelt desire that on this holiday you will be in awe or reverence for the blessings all around you, which hopefully inspires a greater measure of appreciation for those you love.

With so much attention on the preparation of the Thanksgiving meal and taking advantage of Early Bird Black Friday Sales, so many of us can become so dizzy and distracted by activities that we forget to be fully present in the moment with those we love.

Let that not be the case for you. Embody the fullness of NOW as you engage your family, friends, co-workers and even strangers today so as the moments unfold, you feel the blessings all around you.

How to Cultivate A Heart Overflowing with Gratitude

This morning, I had the pleasure of listening to a message by Pastor Joel Osteen in which he spoke about developing the practice of remembering our past victories. He stated, “Our past victories serve as fuel for our next challenge.”

As I listened, my heart swelled with gratitude as I considered all the times in my life when I experienced the mercies of God beyond what I imagined was possible in my life.
