On page 63 Takle writes about gratitude. Gratitude is a wonderful bridge to seeing Him in our life. We can practice gratitude intentionally. “We can open our heart to Him in a spirit of gratitude for His abiding presence. As we do so, we can begin to take notice with our spirit that He is closer than our own breath.
Lord I am grateful for a warm house on a frigid day (we just bought a new heat pump and the house is so much warmer)
For my husband Sam who is loving, even while sick with a bad cold.
For good health
For helpers! Cheryl, Roxy, Deborah, Louise, June, Sam
For peace while I work and for fulfilling work.
For friendships and family.
There is so much to be grateful for, even when we suffer there is always some consolation!
