GRATITUDE IN ACTION



I believe I spent several years of my life taking this experience very much for granted. I did this by choosing to do nothing with my time.


I slept for 12+ hours daily for a few years. I would not go a single day sober for many years at a time, most days drinking or using to the point of losing consciousness….blah blah blah the story goes on.


My point is this: I believe we show our appreciation for life by what we choose to do with our time here on earth and what choose to do with what God has given us. I don’t think that we coincidentally land ourselves a career in something random. I think that if a person appreciates life and the people in it, they will search for a way to contribute to others and be of good use. I think we show our gratitude by doing good things with our free time and making a difference outside of our occupation.


I think we show that we appreciate life by taking care of our body, making good use of our time, and being good to other people on this earth.


Thank you for meeting me here this morning so we can both do something good with our time.


Have a great Monday!
