Being Grateful for What We Take for Granted — 10 Comments

  1. Another good one, Karen.
    I just posted a blog on Autumn Arrivals on my site. You might enjoy it. Also another review of my memoir. Stay well.

    • Marie, I didn’t realize you had a blog. I just visited it. I wanted to sign up for notices but didn’t see a place to do so. I left a comment. Thank you for enjoying my reflections.

  2. Lovely piece, Karen, reminding me to open my eyes more to the Giver. I love your down-to-earth perspective, a deeper look into the everyday. Keep writing!

    • Thank you for the encouragement, Michele. We seem to be offering such words to one another as we each reflect on the everyday and how God is in all of it.

  3. How true, Karen. We take everything for granted. I know I do. I don’t dwell on any convenience before using it. As long as we don’t take God and His blessings for granted. Lord, help me not to and please forgive me if I do. Thanks for the wake up call, Karen. GBY.

  4. This is good Karen. God will however, get our att. sooner or later. It may be when we are in a bind and need His wisdom or supernatural intervention.

  5. For many years now my motto has been :”Change your attitude, express more gratitude” ! I thought of it while cleaning house when I really did not want to vacuum! I started thanking God that I had a house to clean, the good health to do the work, the new vacuum cleaner, etc.! Then I learned to express gratitude for the things I did NOT have that I DID NOT WANt : I did not want to be diabetic, loose my ability to think, lose the use of my hands,~~well, you get the picture !> a granteful heart is a thankful heart.
    thanks for the reminder, margaret

    • Great comment, Margaret. Charles and I agree with you about gratitude. There is so much to be grateful for–even when we’re doing chores we don’t particularly like. At least we are alive and well enough to do them and that alone is worthy of praising God.
