I give thanks for the gifts of God.

Gratitude has the power to lift my thoughts and renew my faith in God as my unlimited source of good.

When the disciples were concerned there was not enough to feed the hungry, Jesus took what they had and blessed it. Giving thanks for God's gifts, he multiplied them and had more than enough to feed the crowds.

I consider each breath a gift. So, too, are the beauty of the sky and the faces of those I love. I give thanks for all that sustains my physical being, including clean water, shelter and food. I am thankful for opportunities to give and receive love, connect with God and share what I have been given with others.

"Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds."--Matthew 14:19.Inspired by this message?
