Purplerays brought this writing of Monterey Bay under our attention.
In the difficult times I with the Belgian Christadelphian community encountered this came as a sprinkle of hope. We can and will stay grateful because we have found the one lord who has brought the Good News for everybody who wants to hear. We also hope we shall be able to bring those good words to others and spread the news we have something magnificent to look out for.
For all the small things we can enjoy and all those great wonders in nature we be witness of, we can see the Hand of the Master and be assured whatever man did to destroy it, he never succeed in it. God His creation shall ever exist. Men will die and will be long forgotten, but every day a new child shall become a witness of the wonders of nature.
Therefore led us build up our memory of a heart full of love and remembering the nice things of life, the good friends and people we would love to have around us.
Yes we shall concentrate on the better things of life, and look forward to a better future, whatever bad may happen, we shall focus on the light in the darkness.

remembering to be thankful, saying thank you to the person who waits an extra moment to hold the door open for me and to, in turn, do the same for someone else. Growing up, saying thank you was simply called good manners and was ingrained in our brains from early on. Doing a kindness for someone else, was also a lesson we were taught as children. But to live in gratitude has been a lesson that I have learned as an adult

Are you occasionally grateful? Are you a seasonal worshipper? Do you praise God only when things are rosy and the going is good? What do you do when things look their worst?
God is faithful! God is always good. From everlasting to everlasting, he is forever good! If you’ve been seasonal worshipper who praises God only when things are good, you must pray to the Lord to forgive you for being inconsistent in gratitude.

Gratitude is a consistent practice that flows in the wisdom teachings of the world. In regard to living your purpose and being guided by your vision, it is a powerful practice to give thanks in advance for the fulfillment of your vision. In spite of the appearances, give thanks. When you expected something that did not materialize, trust that you are being guided to open to something greater than you have imagined and give thanks anyway. Gratitude is a creative energy that creates more from which to be grateful.
