Quotes of gratitude inspired me today after spending time by the pool with my girls, soaking up some sun, and enjoying the blessings God has put in my life.
Hope you had a blessed Sunday
Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. –Colossians 3:16-17
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity….It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.
– Melody Beattie
Concentrate on finding what is good in every situation and you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.
– Rabbi Harold Kushner
Whatever we are waiting for—peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance—it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.
– Ellen Vaughn
Gratitude is like a flashlight. If you go out in your yard at night and turn on a flashlight, you suddenly can see what’s there. It was always there, but you couldn’t see it in the dark.
– Dawna Markova
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn, or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
– Denis Waitley
Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice. I can choose to be grateful even when my emotions and feelings are steeped in hurt. It is amazing how many occasions present themselves in which I can choose gratitude instead of complaint. Begin by thank Him for some little thing, and then go on, day by day, adding to your subjects of praise; thus you will find their numbers grow wonderfully, and in the same proportion, will your subjects of murmuring and complaining diminish, until you see in everything, cause for Thanksgiving.
– P. Maurice
