I received this message of gratitude while reading 1000 Gifts, but once I completed the book, life went on and I forgot how imperative it is to be thankful in all circumstances. Last night I began reading Prayer Warrior Mom and was convicted of the need to be grateful once more. The author states that the wife is the heart of the home and her attitude controls the "temperature" inside. Nothing is more of an indicator of our attitude than our level of gratitude. I must learn to be thankful at all times, to model this Biblical command for my daughter and to create a loving environment in my home. This starts with being thankful. Each time I begin to feel frustrated, angry, or hurt I hope to thank God, knowing that He is working purposefully in my life, for my benefit.
