Do you have an attitude of gratitude? Whatever you do, don’t keep it to yourself!

Below are a handful of questions to prompt an attitude of gratitude within us all. I’ve started the ball rolling by sharing my own answers. If you’d like to copy the questions and post them on your blog site, that would be great!

 

With an attitude of gratefulness…

 

  • What is outside my window I haven’t noticed before? {Stars. Knowing that God chose to name each star [Psalm 147:4] makes me grateful that He is not an obtuse Father, but one who desires to know me—to know us— intimately.}
  • In this moment, I am grateful for: {Shelter in the rain, a toasty blanket, and my cup of Cafe Vienna topped off with a few marshmallows. Okay, more than a few.}
  • One person I thanked God for this week: {My husband. I am grateful how the Lord is growing each of us towards Him, naturally pulling us together as a couple.}
  • One way God is allowing me to use the gift(s) He is giving me for His glory: {Blogging! I‘ll explain more in the next post. :)}
  • One scripture verse I’m especially grateful for in this very moment and why: {Colossians 3:23-24. Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men…It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Why: This truth sets our entire lives free, not only in our work/service life and blesses the entire family and those around us.}
  • One trial I’m currently walking through: {Upcoming surgery in November.}
  • How I’ve seen and sensed God’s love and presence during this trial: {God has worked out details in ways only He could. His presence has been evident through the love, care, and prayers from Brian, family/church family, and friends. So incredibly grateful!}

While reading Heather’s blog, Something Sew Beautiful, (a new fave!) one of her recent posts prompted the above idea. Thanks for the inspiration my California friend!

Sweet readers, I hope you’ll take a few moments tonight to pour a warm cup of coffee and slink down into a comfy chair. Allow the Holy Spirit time to lead your heart and mind as you consider each question. I also hope you’ll consider posting the questions on your blog to encourage others.

Let’s pass on the attitude of gratitude!
