Tis a Gift to be Thankful – Doug Zook

 October 13, 2013


“Gratitude goes beyond the ‘mine’ and ‘thine’ and claims the truth that all of life is a pure gift. In the past I always thought of gratitude as a spontaneous response to the awareness of gifts received, but now I realize that gratitude can also be lived as a discipline. The discipline of gratitude is the explicit effort to celebrate all that I am and have is given to me as a gift of love, a gift to be celebrated with joy.” ~Henri J. M. Nowen
