“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 5:20
It’s the middle of October and it’s time to begin thinking about Thanksgiving. This golden season of gratitude is always a great time to count your blessings. But as children of God, thankfulness is not confined to a day or season, it is an attitude that we should have every day.
Choosing an “attitude of gratitude” honors God. Try keeping a gratitude journal and in it write 3 things for which you are grateful. This is a great exercise to do just before you go to bed at night; you’ll be amazed how reflecting on your blessings will transform your life. A grateful heart sees each day as a gift from God.
The Printery House offers a gratitude journal,prayer journal as well as many Thanksgiving cards, one featuring a prayer written by one of the monks of Conception Abbey.(CB10016), an inspiring prayer for all year round.
