All is Gift

Yesterday was Thanksgiving. It’s one of my favorite holidays because, unlike Christmas, I receive no gifts. Thanksgiving is all about being. Being grateful. Being with family and friends. Being around a table. Just being. Thanksgiving gives you and I the opportunity to consider and be grateful for all the gifts we’ve already received. So, I took some time to think about what I’m grateful for and these thoughts bubbled to the surface. I hope they encourage you in some way today…


All is Gift.

All is Gift.

God owes me nothing.

My wife and children owe me nothing.

My friends owe me nothing.

All is Gift and if I could only remember this every day,

how much more would I live suspended by…

grace, humility, gratitude and awe.

Questions: How could living without a sense of entitlement or the idea that the world owes us something make a difference in how we live? How can gratefulness change your perspective on what really matters?

I’d love your thoughts and comments.
