Tis the season for the list of “things I’m thankful for”. What a thing to be spreading like wildfire, this story of gratitude. I can’t begin to describe what the listing of gifts has done for my story. Thanks to Ann Voskamp, I am tipping toward #4000. But that story is for another day.
Cultivating gratitude is no doubt one of the most positive and life changing disciplines one can undertake. It colors out the gray in ordinary days and boldly rejects brokenness. I see the baby seeds of gratitude lists sprouting up in my facebook feed. My prayer is that this listing will grow into the other 11 months of the year. Not as a fad, but as a way of life.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
And his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
