The language of gratitude

From the November 2001 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Gratitude is a catalyst that brings God's goodness into focus.

Good Things Come To Us, sometimes, in unexpected ways. And they can be lessons that help us in our spiritual journey. I remember such an instance.

A friend came to visit me one day. I had injured my hands and was, at times, in a lot of pain. He knew I had been praying for a while about this, and he wanted to share some encouraging thoughts. At first, it seemed that we were on different wavelengths—speaking two different languages. He, the language of gratitude. I, the language of "Wait to feel better first; then it will be the time to rejoice again."
