SOUND BITES: Something to chew on that is good for the soul™: THE DISCIPLINE OF GRATITUDE

Original post at http://soundbitesministry.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-discipline-of-gratitude.html

Gratitude goes beyond the "mine" and the "thine" and claims the truth that all of life is a pure gift. In the past I always thought of gratitude as a spontaneous response to the awareness of gifts received, but now I realize that gratitude can also be lived as a discipline. The discipline of gratitude is the explicit effort to acknowledge that all I am and have is given to me as a gift of love, a gift celebrated with joy.
