I'm convinced that gratitude is a practice that we all could use more of. Today, I'm grateful for too much to list here. But I will share a few things with you.
First, thanks for reading this. I appreciate you stopping by.
Second, if you are a Christian I recommend two books by Native American authors. Black Elk Speaks by John Neihardt and Rescuing the Gospel from the Cowboys by Richard Twiss. And you should really listen to A Tribe Called Red.
Third, one my favorite writers, Seth Godin has published a free Thanksgiving reader. It's chalk full of gratitude inducing quotes, poems, etc.
Last, I leave you with a prayer that my family and I pray around our table almost daily:
Creator God,Practice gratitude.
We thank you for the hands that have prepared this food
From the soil to the table
Bless it to our bodies
And our bodies to your service
May we be we grateful for all we have
And generous with all we've been given.
In Jesus' name we pray,
