The words written in the study are before me:

“… the only reward for our faith is the Rewarder Himself.”
(from “But We See Jesus”,

In this life, we are blessed to journey through with the Presence of “the Rewarder Himself”. We do not travel our days alone because He is faithful to be with us every single day.

The simple quote brought to mind a video I had seen several years ago and I searched to find it again on youtube. It is a short video, well-worth your time to watch. Brother David Steindl-Rast, a benedictine monk, shares his thoughts and observations on gratitude. There truly are so many little things each day which we overlook and our hearts would swell with gratitude – if we were to but take notice. My favorite quote from the video still remains this one:

Let the gratefulness overflow into blessing all around you. Then it will really be a good day.

We can start a chain effect by simply having a grateful heart. Those around us will be blessed for having been in the presence of a grateful heart. A heart that recognizes the color of the sky, the smell of autumn, the crunch of the leaves, the movement of the clouds.

Twenty four hours allotted to each of us and it is called, “Today” …

“This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.”
(Psalm 118:24, NLT)

Let gratefulness overflow.
Have a really good day.
And may others be blessed by you.
