GRATITUDE...

Wednesday, January 06, 2010

UNLOCKS THE FULLNESS OF LIFE. IT TURNS WHAT WE HAVE INTO ENOUGH AND MORE. IT TURNS DENIAL INTO ACCEPTANCE, CHAOS TO ORDER AND CONFUSION TO CLARITY.

IT CAN TURN A MEAL INTO A FEAST, A HOUSE INTO A HOME AND A STRANGER INTO A FRIEND. GRATITUDE MAKES SENSE OF OUR PAST, BRINGS PEACE FOR TODAY AND CREATES A VISION FOR TOMORROW.

LORD, TEACH US ALL TO BE MORE GRATEFUL, THAT IS MY PRAYER FOR TODAY!

SIX DAYS INTO THE NEW YEAR, I MUST ADMIT THAT MY NEW START IS MUCH SLOWER THAN I HAD EXPECTED. THIS IS MY PRESENT STATUS. THE THING IS THAT IN THE LAST THREE MONTHS OF 2009, I ALLOWED MANY, MANY WEEDS IN MY GARDEN TO GROW...BAD HABITS CAN COME BACK WITH A VENGENCE AND THEY DID!! I AM FINDING MYSELF HAVING TO FIGHT THE FOOD LION AND THE SUGAR BEAST 24/7 AND IT IS NO FUN.

YET...I CHOOSE TO LIVE IN THE PRESENT AND I AM GRATEFUL TO HAVE ANOTHER CHANCE TO DO BETTER THIS DAY :)
I HAVE EVERY REASON TO BELIEVE THAT TODAY CAN BE BETTER THAN YESTERDAY WAS AND I AM WILLING TO STAY ON THIS ROAD THAT I KNOW LEADS TO THE OTHER SIDE...THAT IS THE SIDE OF WELLNESS AND INNER PEACE. FEELING GRATEFUL FOR THE JOURNEY.

    Living in the now is about being mindful moment by moment. I find this can take a lot of self-discipline at times, and so I appreciate your battle with the food lion and sugar beast. Be gentle with yourself and lean on the One who loves you and will guide you to Wellness and Inner Peace. Happy New Year, my friend. God bless you,
