Take a Gratitude Day! Spend a day being mindful of everything you feel grateful for and saying a quick prayer of thanksgiving, over and over, all day long. Lillian Daniel
What if for the first 20 days of November, we practice gratitude? Each day, we would write down what we feel grateful for and then say a quick prayer of thanks. We invite everyone to try this, adults and children, individuals and families, members and friends.
We all have something in our lives to be grateful for.
Each of us would do this in our own way, but an example is below.
I'm calling it a cleanse, because gratitude is a practice that cleans out the cobwebs and stuff hidden deep in the closets of our hearts. It helps us to face the world lighter and with a more open heart.
On our Ingathering Sunday, November 20th, we could bring both our Ingathering food collection and our gratitude before God in thanksgiving.
I am grateful for another day, for the adventure of this life.
Today, I am especially grateful for:
Thank you God, for the gift of life and its many blessings.
