“Today you will envy the blessings of another, or you will bask in the wonder of the amazing grace you have been given.” ~ Paul David Tripp
“To express gratitude is to put into words a beautiful sense of wholeness. Recognizing the people, the experiences, and the extraordinary gifts of life which feed our souls.” ~ Anna
“Gratitude shouldn't be an occasional incident but a continuous attitude.” ~ Anthony Nyuiemedy-Adiase
“Living in love, gratitude and forgiveness, is peaceful and spiritually rejuvenating. Living under the emotional constraints of anger and resentment is draining and toxic to heart and soul. It can be difficult to let go of past hurts, but it can also be freeing and uplifting. More and more, i choose to live in love, gratitude and forgiveness.” ~ Jaeda DeWalt
