It’s so easy to look at our day to notice what is difficult, and what we need. But, if we start from a place of gratitude, we stop to notice the opportunities, we stop to notice God in that moment. With the TV and retailers bombarding us with what they think we need for Christmas, why not bring gratitude into your preparations? How different may the days running up to Christmas be, if we approach them thanking God for who we are, for those around us and for all that we have?
With thanks to Forest Hill South Park for their video on gratitude, which rounded up our service today.
