The Weekly Word:

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”


For Reflection
How do you consciously “cultivate the habit of being grateful?” Do you say a morning or evening prayer of thanks? Do you journal and record the gifts in your life? What “spiritual disciplines” do you find help you to live a life of gratitude for “all things?”
