What was it I was thankful for again?

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits” (Psalm 103:2, ESV)

Personally, I think gratitude is hard.

If you could read my thoughts on a random day at a random moment, the odds that I’m thinking grateful thoughts aren’t high.

More likely than gratitude is stress, to-do lists and how I can take care of myself.

On Thanksgiving, we devoted a day to gratitude. Even assuming your day wasn’t just eating and watching TV, a day can’t possibly do it justice.

On any random day at any random moment, His blessings are all around us. His loves bears us up, His patience endures, His faithfulness encircles us and His grace pours abundantly out.

For the soul that remembers, gratitude is not a special day and it’s not even a recurring act.

Gratitude is a way of life.

Look at any blessing in your life. We deserve none of it. Every blessing is undeserved and the blessings are uncountable.

So let us give thanks.

Therefore I must daily find a way to perform my latest hits without the hundreds of people I see in traffic noticing. So I improvise. At the stop light, if I pull up in between the two cars in the next lane over, neither of them can really tell what I'm doing. Rock on my friend. If I can't hit one of those sweet spots between cars, I might just do every other line ...wishin they was dancin a jig... ciga-cigar right from Cuba-Cu-ba ... They might think they saw something, do a double take, but loo
