IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

The gift of love means this: I want to share with you whatever I have that is good. ~John Powell

Today I am grateful…

  • that it was 45º when I woke this morning instead of the freezing temperatures we have had this winter
  • for the most part I have resigned from the debating society
  • for a Higher Power that has taught me to be grateful
  • for my New Year’s focus – compassion
  • that I have to occasionally delete shows from my DVR because I do not watch that much TV any more

focus

I will say thank you to God for everything, even the seeming trials and worries. I will strive to be grateful and humble. My whole attitude toward the Higher Power will be one of gratitude. I will be glad for the things I have received. I will pass on what God reveals to me. I believe that more truths will flow in, as I go along in the new way of life. ~Twenty-Four Hours a Day

After I read the quote of the day, it is difficult for me to make a smart ass comment.

I adore that first quote - what a great definition of love

I too am grateful for slightly warmer temperatures this morning. Get post, Scott.

I liked the picture. It forced me to FOCUS. Words blind words sometimes. All your quotes are 'real,' is it your own?

Joy always,
Susan

SD, no the image is not mine. I found it in an old file and thought it was good so I reposted it.

I learn better by visuals and your picture today did the trick. Although my eyes are a bit fuzzy now :-D
