Gratitude & A Positive Attitude
A grateful attitude allows us to change our perspective and can help us find joy and purpose in life. Gratitude opens our heart to love and helps us to share it with others. as we choose positive thoughts and perspectives we will banish selfishness, darkness and despair in our lives.
Being grateful in times of distress does not mean that we are pleased with our circumstances. It does mean that through the eyes of faith we look beyond our present-day challenges.
