"Everyday Gratitude"


Each year as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, we tend to make more time to consciously count our blessings and express our gratitude. More than at any other time of the year, we become willing to take stock of all the things in our lives for which we are grateful, and then make a point of formally declaring our gratitude and appreciation for them. It is pretty much the entire point of the Thanksgiving holiday season, to give thanks for the blessings in our lives.

There is nothing wrong with having a national holiday of gratitude. But, why do we wait until Thanksgiving to make gratitude such a big deal? Gratitude is an experience to be cultivated in our daily experience. Instead of waiting until Thanksgiving to make a grand collective gesture, it would be much more beneficial in our lives to practice everyday gratitude throughout the year.

We invite you to join us this coming Sunday, November 14, as Rick Busby, LUT, returns to Unity Church of the Hill Country with an always timely message of thanksgiving that encourages us to actively cultivate a practice of "Everyday Gratitude" in our lives.
