White lettering on black background says "Gratitude."

It’s great if I feel it in my heart.

It’s awesome if I think it in my mind.

Those are places to start.

But if it remains just a feeling or a thought, is that enough?

I can feel grateful. I can think thankfully.

But, what is my outward response?

Gratitude is not intended to be a silent, internal feeling or thought, kept to myself.

How does my gratitude become second nature in my attitude?

I’ve struggled in recent months to find the time and energy to write. A group of writers proposed writing something every day for the month of October, based on a one word prompt, and writing in just five minutes – no worrying about perfect grammar or always being poignant or well-polished. I’m giving it a go in an effort to jump start my writing. For the one word prompts, I’m going to follow along with The Upper Room’s Sight Psalms. They put out a picture a day and apply one word and a short reflection. If you are reading this, thanks for accompanying me for this experiment in motivation and discipline.
