Write 30 notes

peanut butter and marshmallow sandwich
Not your typical honeymoon meal. The marshmallows are left over from the group campfire and Smores extravaganza on one of Washington State’s San Juan Islands. Peanut butter transferred to lighter plastic container from the original glass jar.

For the next 30 days before you go to bed, can you write a note to yourself about what you are thankful for?

Keep these 30 notes safe and reread them whenever you want.

Basics: Be grateful

One room at 8,200′ has everything a person needs. An outhouse is nearby.

Never get bored with the basics, like gratitude.

Be grateful constantly.

Why?

You will find it impossible to be unhappy while you are grateful.

Deny the gift?

quote about books
A book is portable, and full of content, yet pales in comparison to another portable tool – iPhone.

To be able to do a simple, daily gesture that is as much a gift to yourself as it is to others, but not do it? You gotta be kidding’ me.

In the 19th century the problem was that God is dead. In the 20th century the problem is that man is dead.

Erich Fromm

What if the only blessings you get today are the blessings you were grateful for yesterday?

The circle of life

instructions on paper
Most write Family. Then i ask them what’s at the center of Family. Many then say God. i press once more, what’s at the center of that. They usually stop with God.
circle with the word Jesus written in the center
i then reveal my answer and it’s as if they are caught off guard. Why/how did a Christian miss this?

What gift has Providence on man that is so dear to him as his children.

Cicero

The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you.

Robert Louis Stevenson

Gratitude, more aware of what you have and what you don’t. Recognizing the treasures in the simple – a child’s hug, fertile soil, a golden sunset. Relishing in the comfort of the common – a warm bed, a hot meal, a clean shirt.

Max Lucado
