Always a Reason to Give Thanks

“When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself” (Tecumseh).

Every day that you wake up, you can find a reason to give thanks.

If you can’t find one, the fault lies with you.

Most often, you won’t find what you’re not looking for. If you’re not seeking the good, you won’t find it. If you have no reason to give thanks, it’s because you’re probably focusing on the wrong things.

Whenever I give into despair and entitlement, it’s because I quit looking for joy and gratitude in the every day. I forgot to count my blessings and give thanks for each one.

Again, if you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.

If you look with the eyes of grace, you will find more than enough reason.
