Eight Ways to Learn about Thankfulness

It is easy to say what I am thankful for, but what is the outpouring of being thankful? Here are eight things that I find we can practically learn to become more thankful.

1. Get to know God. It’s the only relationship that will last forever and the only place where we find true thankfulness. 

2. Understand the meaning of true love. Study how God has loved. Seek the meaning of why Christ died and why a God would do what he did. 

3. Rejoice in the fact that heaven’s plans have unfolded and have given a preview of the ultimate kingdom of our God.

4. Find friendships and people who you can love. Yet don’t hinge upon them as your only source of happiness. 

5. If money means a lot, then learn to make it mean little. When we have it, let it be a blessing. Don’t simply waste it, rather use it wisely but don’t horde it either. 

6. Don’t stress about the everyday emotion busters. For work is a means to an end. Relationships provide a way to learn, encourage, and bring joy. Things are meant as peaceful enjoyments that are disposable.

7. Enjoy the means given to you. Laughter has been given you to promote the joys of peace. Even the little things bring us more joy than things in the world.

8. Learn to understand there is so much we cannot understand but simply have to learn to either love it or try to understand it.

We find that there are many different viewpoints that we can take in order to see something slightly different. Perspective has a role in the interpretation of the a piece or an event.

Blogging Rediscovery

There are days where I really want to blog and have been doing so for the last three; no five years. And it just reminds me of how quick the time glides away, as the old adage says… “I’ll try tomorrow.” And then 2 months later you regret not starting; and you don’t start because you didn’t start two months ago. 

At least that is how it works for me. I enjoy writing… it gives me time to think and reflect on life and everything that seems to define time. I suppose it lets my brain slow down a tad more than normal which is quite important for my rat’s nest of a brain.

 But writing something helpful is as important to me. For books have created the greatest change, and sometimes it is simply another media that will really get you to think. For I want to encourage, inspire, vitalize and bring thought to the brains of one’s heart.  So may you be blessed.
