When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Sunday Devotional - Gratitude for All Things

“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend… when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present — love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure — the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.” –Sarah Ban Breathnach

Today, let us seek to be grateful for what we do have.  My challenge this week is to be grateful everyday for at least one thing.  Focus on what is going right in your life.  Focus on a moment, or a thought, or the answer to prayer.  I have found that the more time I take to be grateful, the more I find in my life to be grateful for.  


  1. Beautiful quote! I have been thinking lots about ingratitude in my own life and am working on it. It is so much easier to focus on what I don't have, but I do have so many blessings.

  2. That is an interesting thought and gives me much to ponder. I need those reminders to be thankful.

  3. Very true that the more we express gratitude the more we notice what is good in our lives.
