Gratitude is a spiritual discipline that is important for me to practice on a regular basis, whether the week of Thanksgiving or the middle of February. It is the pathway for me toward contentment and peace in a world filled with envy and striving.
It was so meaningful to me that my very first article that appeared in Our Daily Bread was a reflection on gratitude, specifically the poem “Gratefulness” by 17th century British priest and poet George Herbert. I hope it is an encouragement as you consider things you are grateful for this week as you gather with family and friends.
All is well,
