Day 6: Be grateful

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.      Oprah Winfrey

He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.      Epictetus

Many people who order their lives rightly in all other ways are kept in poverty by their lack of gratitude.      Wallace Wattles

Bible Verse
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.    Phil. 4:12-13

Grateful: Art Garfunkel

  1. Thank you, Bernice. Because of your blog I've resurrected my "Simple Abundance Journal of Gratitude" by Sarah Ban Breathnach. I'm using it as my journal for this challenge. I had become quite the complainer, failing to see my very blessed life despite its challenges at present. I'm developing an attitude of gratitude again. Today I actually did some art journaling in my journal. Pretty basic but I'm happy with it. Thanks to you and Mary Brack for inspiring me to create....just as I am, how I am, and with what I have. Blessings!

    1. Thank you for sharing with us. I hope you will share your pages also.
