Believe it or not I found this
little quote (?) on
Does it count as a quote if it is not attributed to anyone?
for your consideration I present:
What if the only things you woke up with today
were the things you thanked God for
I try so hard to practice
To be grateful.
To be actively aware of all God has done for me.
And it's funny that after I tried to compile a list of
all the things I am thankful for and
really would be sad if I woke up without tomorrow,
I determined the list was too long and was bound to be missing things.
So then I thought I should take it down to the most basic needs in my life.
The Holy Spirit.
And whereas I think that is spot on,
I can't help but think it's a bit of a cop out.
I think I am called to count my blessings.
And this makes me think again about how much there
is to "keep track of" as a Christian.
All the things I should do, not do, try to do.
And then I am thankful for all those things.
That's the stuff that keeps my eyes turned toward God.
And me on my knees.
