Those who set aside the bottle of bitterness and lift instead the goblet of gratitude can find a purifying drink of healing, peace, and understanding.
I’m suggesting that instead of being thankful farthings, we focus on being thankful in our circumstances—whatever they may be.
We can choose to be grateful, no matter what.
We sometimes think that being grateful is what we do after our problems are solved, but how terribly shortsighted that is. How much of life do we miss by waiting to see the rainbow before thanking God that there is rain?
Gratitude is a catalyst to all Christlike attributes! A thankful heart is the parent of all virtues.
I also read “O Remember, Remember” by President Henry B. Eyring, and wanted to remember the following thoughts:
Have I seen the hand of God reaching out to touch us or our children or our family today?
My point is to urge you to find ways to recognize and remember God’s kindness. It will build our testimonies.
