13: In Thankfulness

During the last 12 posts on Lent, I have realized that mindfulness and looking for the face of God in everyday things is really an act of Thankfulness. And, to be honest, I am thankful for that 🙂 It is pleasing to sit back and the end of the day, or during a special moment within the day, and have my heart ping with a little feeling of gratefulness for what is occurring and to see that those moments are often the moments I become most aware of the goodness of God.

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. -Colossians 2:6-7

 

[Our responses and reactions to the things that happen around us reveal the depth of our character and nature.
They are opportunities, also, to show the character and love of God.
This Lenten Season I am practicing awareness by looking for deep truth in everyday things.
