A friend recently challenged me to write a Thank You note everyday for two months. I liked the idea so much that I challenged the congregation to "40 Days of Thank You!". Its a simple concept: 1 Thank You note per day for 40 Days.
The concept is as powerful as it is simple. Gratitude is the foundational virtue for a growing soul. Practicing gratitude opens us up to the provisions and grace of God that are all around us. The more we practice, the more we see. The more we see, the larger our hearts grow and the more we are able to allow God's grace to flow in and through us.
How about it- are you up for this challenge? If you started on Monday, it would take you to New Year's Day. Let me know if you take this on and I hope you'll share your experience of "40 Days of Thank You!"
