I once heard Rich say to me about a difficult relationship, “What can you show gratitude for?”  ‘I don’t have any gratitude for them’ I responded!  Rich didn’t like that answer.

Not every relationship or situation in our lives leaves us being grateful.  Nevertheless, the Apostle Paul encourages us to be thankful in all things.  How in the world is that possible?  Simply put, I may not be thankful for some people or circumstances, but I can be thankful that God is present in me, with me and for me!

Gratitude becomes a passageway for the very heart of who we are as God’s people in Christ this season of thanksgiving.  Happy Thanksgiving!
