Expressing gratitude is a deeply nourishing practice that brings with it indescribable power. In America, my country, Thanksgiving is celebrated each November by expressing gratitude. Whether gathering with family or going solo—or even if in a part of the world without this holiday—we can benefit from taking a closer look at the true nature of gratitude.
Gratitude promotes a sense of well-being and helps one become more aware of good. In fact, it is a kind of prayer, which keeps us in conversation with God, good.
These words from a hymn (Vivian Burnett, Christian Science Hymnal, No. 249, © CSBD) can prompt a vital, thought-provoking question: Do I choose to serve the god of limitation or instead acknowledge the absolute truth of the abundance of God, good?
