Gift Wrapped Days

"Let Me teach you thankfulness...each new day is a gift from Me, not to be taken for granted."(124)
Have you noticed how some days do not SEEM like a gift? They can be wrapped in concern, heaviness and maybe even profound sadness. However, "the secret of being thankful is learning to see everything from (His) perspective."
After all, if we REALLY saw life from His perspective, we would be extremely grateful!  Why?  Because we would choose exactly what He has planned for our day... with all it's glorious gifts just waiting to be opened.  So, Lord, I need to first open my eyes so I can start opening my gifts!
Ok,  I'm heading into my day, with eyes wide OPEN !


  1. Why is it so difficult to remember something so easy everyday? I get frustrated allowing myself to forget His wonderful gifts and get caught up in the worries of the day! Thank you for the reminder of His plan and all I need to do is be grateful and follow it.....

  2. Why do we forget to carry a spirit of gratitude and open our gift? I want to learn how to do what this devotional says: "see things the way He sees them." I will pray for that.
