Gratitude Journal….200 mark!

Deuteronomy 10:21
He is your praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.

Today I reached the 200 mark in the gratitude journal! Keeping a gratitude journal has been life-changing for me. What a blessing to be reminded to look for those things for which I am grateful, to begin to see the everyday as extraordinary, the tiny details of beautiful life as blessings from a God who loves us. We were created to revel in the work of His hands….if we just wake up to that beauty! If you haven’t yet, please join the Gratitude Community over at Ann Voskamp’s. Post your journal in your blog, or keep a personal book at home. What a difference it makes to count your blessings!
