Multitude Monday

"I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought,
and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder."

Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Sometimes, when Monday rolls around, I think "I don't have anything special to add to my list this week, so I won't participate in the Gratitude Community this time." I walk around and feel a bit uncomfortable as a little voice prods me with memories of all that He has done:

- a birthday celebration for my Mom - 87 years of blessing to everyone who has had the joy of knowing her

- protection for my son - when he got a nasty shock while doing some electrical work

- safe travels for my daughter

- a night of incredible ministry

- volunteer work

- an afternoon shower

- the joy that comes from doing the thing I love to do, and encouraging words from friends

- delicious corn on the cob (with lots of butter!)

- a great sale on things we needed

- the underlying current of mercy, grace and love that flows through my life because of Jesus
