Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast,
a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.
Some people complain because God put thorns on roses,
while others praise Him for putting roses among thorns.
O Lord that lends me life,
Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.
