Gratitude can usher us into praise and worship as we take time to follow it back to its source.
Every time we feel gratitude, even if it’s for a small favor or a tiny comfort, we can tap into the larger gratitude of the Eucharist, giving thanks for Christ’s redemptive work on our behalf.
When we experience the alignment of things going our way, or when we feel the Spirit’s encouragement even when things don’t, something as simple as a look toward heaven and a whisper of “thank you” throughout our days can be a reminder that God is good and deserves our praise.
What if I could learn how to feel and express gratitude in a way that brings glory to God throughout my day?
The good stuff I’ve been reading, watching and listening to, especially as it relates to the theme of love.
Love is the greatest because it’s not just the plan to restore God and his people. It’s the goal.

The good stuff I’ve been reading, watching and listening to, especially as it relates to the theme of joy.
There is a way back to joy, and the directions are simple. “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8). Once you get there, joy will be waiting.
We hold our joy in the same hands that we carry burdens. We run through nature and find our peace because the world is so very fractious. And for those few moments of breathing deeply and listening to the cicada chorus serenade us, we are okay.
