Peaceful Gratitude, G. K. Chesterton, and Colossians 3:15 (Everyday Thanks #529)

5/13/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: Peace is something that cannot be bought or taught. It cannot be borrowed or given by people; and when we have true peace, it certainly cannot be taken away. When we choose to be grateful for everything, we welcome peace into our lives. Peace forms a firm foundation for living. Real peace gives us a reason not to worry about anything, not to want for anything, and helps us to be able to deal with everything that comes our way. Gratitude is peace...

Intention and Habit, Mandy Hale, and II Corinthians 1:11 (Everyday Thanks #528)

5/12/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: There is a great deal of difference between intention and habit. Intention is the ability to consciously choose what we do and don't do; it is also an objective, a purpose, or a plan about life and for life. Habit is a settled practice or routine, one that is usually hard to break or give up on. Gratitude should be both an intention and a habit. We want to consciously choose to be thankful for every situation, but also to make gratitude part of our...

Embrace It, Embody It, John F. Kennedy, and Daniel 6:10 (Everyday Thanks #527)

5/11/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: You can tell a happy person from an unhappy person by their level of gratitude for life and everything that comes with it. Happiness is not just positive emotions and feelings, it is a state of continous intense joy. So even we don't feel so happy, we can still be happy by finding joy in gratitude. Grateful people embrace happiness and embody happiness, meaning that it is both within and without. Wherever we are, whatever we are doing, whomever we are...

Land at Death's Door, Khalil Gibran, and Psalm 28:7 (Everyday Thanks #526)

5/10/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: The point of life is not to land at death's door safely having been on a years long pursuit of people, plaudits, prosperity, and promotions. We will never fill our inner void with outer things. The point of life is to live each day in such a way that our contentment results in peace, love, and joy. Contentment allows us to understand where we are, and even if it's not the best of situations, we would and should still be thankful for it. Our quote of...

Experience Contentment, Abraham Hicks, and Psalm 30:12 (Everyday Thanks #525)

5/9/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: Gratitude is contentment. It is a state of happiness and satisfaction in life and with life. It delivers us from developing an apathetic atittude and causes us to appreciate everything we are given and every situation we find ourselves in. When we begin to express gratitude for every little thing in life, we have begun to experience contentment. Our quote of thanks is from Abraham Hicks. He said, "Appreciation is the purest vibration that exists on...

Focus on ALL the Good, Michael Josephson, and Psalm 118:19 (Everyday Thanks #524)

5/8/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: With all the things that could go wrong, and that often do go wrong, and with all the tragedy, heartbreak, suffering, and pain, it can be hard to focus on the good of life. However, this is where reality comes in. Everything is not all bad, or all good, or all neutral. Because we have brains that relatively struggle to develop inner strengths that can deal with such difficult times in life, we must focus on the good and on turning each situation into...

Forfeit, Angeles Arrien, and Ephesians 1:3 (Everyday Thanks #523)

5/7/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: Sometimes, we fail to choose gratitude. Oftentimes, our situations are not ideal. We may think others have it better than we do. In truth, that's not the case, but we think it is. Getting more stuff or going more places will never make us grateful, just like those things can never make us happy. When we fail to choose gratitude, we forfeit the life of joy and peace that is available to all of us. This is the life God has created for us to live. If we...

Envy, Viktor Frankl, and Psalm 40:16 (Everyday Thanks #522)

5/6/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: Envy is counterproductive to God's will for each of our lives. When we envy others and covet what others have, we spend our energy comparing and contrasting ourselves to them instead of living our lives in the best way possible. Envy flies in the face of appreciation, acceptance, and satisfaction --- all of which are traits closely connected to gratitude. Like antibiotics can be prescribed to fight bacterial infections, gratitude is the prescription to...

Criticism, Marianne Williamson, and 2 Chronicles 31:2 (Everyday Thanks #521)

5/5/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: Criticism comes in many different forms. Sometimes it is gentle and meaningful, many other times it is scathing and harsh. At times it is needed and in order, at other times it is inappropriate and only given to make someone else look bad or the source of it look good. No matter how we view it, criticism is a part of all of our lives at some point or another. The beauty of criticism for those on the receiving end is to accept it with grace and...

Return Blessings, Anne Lamott, and Psalm 136:4 (Everyday Thanks #520)

5/4/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: When we give to others and serve others, we will begin to realize how much we really do have in life. Gifts, talents, time, resources, everything we have becomes something we should be grateful for. When we start giving based upon what we have and what we choose to be grateful for, we not only experience the joy of giving, but the blessings that come from giving as well. Our quote of thanks is from Anne Lamott. She said, "Gratitude and service are the...

Deeper Friendships, Marelisa Fabrega, and Ephesians 5:4 (Everyday Thanks #519)

5/3/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: Gratitude has a way of deepening our friendships with others. When we take the time to talk, to listen, to celebrate, and to cry, we will find multiple reasons and multiple instances in which we can be thankful. True friends, although they may be few, should not be taken for granted. They are there when we need them and still there when we think we don't. They appreciate us and we in turn ought to return the favor. Our quote of thanks is from Marelisa...

5/2/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: True permanent joy is part of the essence of life – “singing and making melody in our hearts with thanksgiving.” It is impossible to have gratitude without joy and likewise joy without gratitude. When we are grateful, we will find joy in the small things; and when we are joyful, we will find a reason to be grateful. Our quote of thanks is from Michael Feeley. He said, "Being grateful, practicing gratitude, will benefit your life if you want it to and...

Mirror, Mirror on the Joy, Mike Krzyzewski, and Psalm 107:31 (Everyday Thanks #517)

5/1/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: Joy is a mirror by which gratitude is reflected. When we choose joy in our present reality, we choose to leave behind what we wish or what we want in order to appreciate what is. True joy is not here today and gone tomorrow; it is a deep-seeded expression that grows out of a heart of gratitude, grace, and goodness. Our quote of thanks is from Mike Krzyzewski [shə-shev-ski]. He said, "Happiness comes when we stop complaining about the troubles we have...

Gratitude Is Joy, the Things We Have, and Colossians 3:16 (Everyday Thanks #516)

4/30/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: Gratitude is joy because it is an act of worship, praise, and an expression of appreciation. Joy inside of us shines through us at any point in life. Some people have this rosy, skip through the tulips, very unrealistic view of life. This view often brings with it problems and unfortunate situations that can be overwhelming to deal with. Trying to live an unrealistic, fairytale life in a very realistic, harsh world opens the door for disappointment and...

Real Joy, Brene` Brown, and Psalm 105:1 (Everyday Thanks #515)

4/29/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: We think of joy as a transitory object or an interchangeable piece of clothing, something to be worn at certain times and not at other times. Real joy, however, is neither transitory or tied to externalities. It does not come only when we feel like it. Real joy for a person of gratitude is ever present, and does not leave based on the ups and downs of life. People who choose gratitude also choose joy. It is impossible to be grateful and not be...

Great Virtue, Kevin Eikenberry, and Revelation 11:17 (Everyday Thanks #514)

4/28/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: In every major religion and most cultures of the world, gratitude is considered a great virtue. Ingratitude on the other hand is right up there with pride, deception, rudeness, and unkindness. No one wants to be around a person who takes things and people for granted and is always complaining about what isn't right or what they don't have. On the other hand, people always opt to be around those who continuously and joyfully acknowledge kindness with...

Social Activity, Tecumseh, and Revelation 7:12 (Everyday Thanks #513)

4/27/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: Friendliness is a byproduct of gratitude. When we perceive kindness or generosity, we have a tendency to want to reciprocate the action or at least the feeling. Expressing gratitude for life causes us to be better equipped to handle friends, to be more likable and to perceive other people as likable. Research shows that people who are ten percent more grateful than average have nearly twenty percent more friends and social activity. The social part of...

Relaxation, Alan Cohen, and 1 Timothy 4:4 (Everyday Thanks #512)

4/26/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: The opposite of turmoil is peace. The opposite of stress is relaxation. The opposite of anxiety is gratitude. All of the ups and downs, and ins and outs of life can cause us to be depressed and worried. We tend to live our lives to the beat of the rush of traffic on a busy day. Without much thought, we push gratitude to the side to wrestle with the "uncomfortability" of that occurs in life. But at certain moments, we must pull ourselves away from...

Envy, Oprah, and 1 Timothy 2:1 (Everyday Thanks #511)

4/25/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: Being grateful eliminates feelings of jealousy, envy, and the need to compare ourselves and what we have to other people and what they have. Envy or jealousy is not healthy for our hearts or our minds. It produces insecurity, unhappiness, bitterness, anxiety, and drives us on an unnecessary and unfulfilled pursuit of materialism. The more grateful we are, the less likely we are to express envy. The more focused we are on benevolence, the less room we...

Contentment Place, Ruth Smeltzer, and 1 Timothy 1:12 (Everyday Thanks #510)

4/24/2015
More
Our thankful thought for today is this: Being content with what we have now brings immediate joy and peace. It also opens up the door to experience more of what we want and gain more of what we need. We will be as grateful as we are content and we will be as content as much as we are grateful. Gratitude is the surest pathway to contentment. If we choose to find and live in the place of contentment, we can enjoy the joyous journey of gratitude. It is a lifelong experience that pushes us in...
