Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
-Melody Beattie

This quote is beautifully written.  I love her words.  Gratitude does make us more full in heart, mind, and Spirit.  

God wants us to worship Him, follow His commands, and share the Love of Christ with others.  When we have the Spirit of Christ in our hearts we have enough.  He turns our hearts into vessels that can be filled again and again by experiences in each day we live.  

We live in a BIG world with a BIG God.  I hope that in the days ahead we pause to see His blessings for what they areMy gratitude is constantly tested as I look at all the "stuff" of life and want more.  We have plenty.  We are blessed.  Thank you God for reminding me to be content.  

YOU are enough.
