Eucharisteo

Giving thanks
always
for all things
unto God and the Father
in the name
of our Lord Jesus Christ.
~ Ephesians 5:20

“If I fail to choose gratitude,
by default, I choose ingratitude.
And once allowed into my life,
ingratitude brings with it
a lot of other undesirable companions
that only succeed
in tearing things up,
then walking off with my joy.”

and…

“…gratitude is not merely a second-tier virtue
in the Christian life -it is vital.
And it is transformational.”

“Joy is always a function of gratitude –
and gratitude is always a function of perspective.
If we are going to change our lives,
what we’re going to have to change is the way we see.”

and…

“Holy joy lies in the habit
of murmuring thanks to God
for the smallest of graces.”

~ Ann Voskamp
