As we just concluded the Thanksgiving holiday season, I wanted to share a quotation from Brennan Manning that has often encouraged me:

“The foremost quality of a trusting disciple is gratefulness. Gratitude arises from the lived perception, evaluation, and acceptance of all of life as grace – as an undeserved and unearned gift from the Father’s hand. Such recognition is itself the work of grace, and acceptance of the gift is implicitly an acknowledgement of the Giver.” (Ruthless Trust: The Ragamuffin’s Path to God, p. 24-25)

 May we live our lives in a continual celebration of thanksgiving for the gift of grace, and may our attitudes daily reflect gratitude to the Giver of life.


What are some of the specific “Thank You’s” you’d like to offer today?
