fmf:: return (of gratitude)

 .. ... .... ... .. ... .... ... .. .... .... .... ... ... .. ..
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
 It turns what we have into enough and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home and a stranger into a friend.  ~ Melody Beattie

This quote speaks volumes to me, simply because... I know it is a place where I need to (humbly) return to.
Gratitude.
Having a consistent heart of gratitude.


When we "return" thanks... Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread... is more than than just a rote saying and prayer.  Its being grateful for what is enough.  Recognizing, the grace we need today... is not for also tomorrow, but only... for today.  And, then... we "return" with thanks and gratitude for only that portion.... and we are satisfied.

    1. Oh, I so appreciate it when you stop by. The bread? Its an easy one. I've gotten my recipe from Faye Henry - blogger at The Blessed Hearth. She's such a dear heart, too!! I am sure you can do a search on my blog here for the recipe... I know I've blogged about it. It's called No Knead Bread and it is super, duper easy. :)
