“As with all commandments, gratitude is a description of a successful mode of living. The thankful heart opens our eyes to a multitude of blessings that continually surround us.” – James E. Faust
"rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." Colossians 2:7
Nothing new you're gonna hear about being grateful. Consider this a reminder of the life-changing work that gratitude can do. Consider it a call, not just to be thankful, but to be thankful past the brim. We are blessed in a way worth of that response, and our gratitude can unveil other blessings yet unseen.
