A wise young man has helped me on my spiritual journey . As a defense against the sin of pride he asked me t o say a simple prayer each day a prayer of gratitude to God . Chooseing my own words but to thank Him from my heart.
This was the begining of a change .
Not long after i read a book by Henri j. m Nouwen and he said this: GRATITUDE CAN BE LIVED AS A DISIPLINE.
The disipline of gratitude is the explicit effort to aknowledge that all i am and have is given to me as a gift of love. A gift to be celebrated with joy. Peace and all Good
