Give Thanks ~ With a Grateful Heart

In all things give thanks.

I have read many of the posts on "Multitudes on Mondays" for a year or more now, and thought it was time that I began my own list of Gratitude. We may acknowledge our blessings, but to write them on paper, no matter how small, is such a great way to really understand how blessed we each are. The tiny moments that are often overlooked in the hustle and bustle of our days. These are the things ~ the moments ~ that I want to remember. The little things that make up the moments of our days, each moment is a blessing in itself. And the things that fill those moments . . . true gifts.

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Colossians 3:17
