Alphabet of Gratitude

Oct 6, 2020
Block letters spelling thank you

Reflect

We sometimes get so caught up in fear it’s hard to remember all we have to be grateful for, and yet there’s an array of things--an abundance.


Pray

God, I get so shut
within the fear 
of the future,
or of making a mistake,
or not effectively meeting responsibilities,
that my days become stale.
But I can practice gratitude,
and, like opening a window wide,
I’m refreshed by the softness of grace
blowing in.


Act

Write down a list of “Gratitude A-B-C’s”. Start with A: what are you grateful for that begins with A? B? Continue through the alphabet. Create even more lightness by asking a family member to join in.
