Think about these things….

Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. ~ St Paul in his letter to the Philippians

Think about these things….
I think about the loveliness of the rain-soaked day
The sound of children’s laughter
The chirping of birds
The muezzin calling the faithful to prayer
And I respond with my own prayer of gratitude.

Think about these things….
I think about love and how it surrounds me
I dwell on grace and how it transforms me
I ponder on excellence and how it inspires me.

I think about these things…
The everyday acts of unsung heroes
The wisdom of the ages
The conquering of fears
The peace of Nature
The graciousness of the Universe
And I am overcome with gratitude.

Talk about the good things, your blessings and what’s going right in your life more than you talk about your problems. ~Lewis Mabee

Today, I’d like to share with you an idea that I came across in this little book called Living Life as a Thank You: The Transformative Power of Daily Gratitude. It’s the concept of having a gratitude circle. The authors tell you why that is a good idea:

By creating a Gratitude Circle, you can join us in being grateful. Connect with others in this special group that’s dedicated to honoring the simple phrases “Thank you” and “I am grateful for….” We know firsthand that once you start a thankfulness circle, it won’t take long for others to join in, and the power of gratefulness will permeate and bless your everyday being.

Would you be interested in joining a gratitude circle? I plan to start one, so let me know in the comments and stay tuned for details.
