Be grateful

Great message from Henri Nouwen about being grateful: 

"Gratitude at its deepest level embraces all of life with thanksgiving: the good and the bad, the joyful and the painful, the holy and the not so holy. Jesus calls us to recognize that gladness and sadness are never separate, that joy and sorrow really belong together, and that mourning and dancing are part of the same movement. That is why Jesus calls us to be grateful for every moment that we have lived and to claim our unique journey as God's way to mold our hearts to greater conformity with God's own...
I am gradually learning that the call to gratitude asks us to say, 'Everything is grace.' Whether there is suffering or joy, I can say, 'Yes, I want to live this, and I want to discover in this more fully the gift of life.'

What are you grateful for today? If we get at least two comments on this post or my last one about being brave, we'll release the long awaited songs the kids wrote and performed about Project Becoming Our Best :).
