"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 !
