Grateful 3 0 | E I G H T E E N

Good words from one of my favorite hymns spurred some reminders in this heart of mine .


I was reflecting on what these words really meant to me . And how they played into the concept of gratitude itself .

C O M E thou F O U N T
Saying welcome to this source of something desirable .

Of E V E R Y blessing .
All of them .

T U N E my heart
Adjust my heart . Touch up my heart . So many important components need to be tuned regularly in order to be used to the best of their ability . A car needs tuning . An engine needs tuning . An instrument needs tuning . A radio needs tuning .
Finding that perfect frequency .
I want a tuned heart .

To  S I N G  thy  P R A I S E .
Singing is a means of expressing outwardly . Not keeping something inside your head or heart or mouth, but proclaiming it out . So others can hear + see + be brought joy by your song as well .
Songs of praise, not complaint or worry or dissatisfaction . Praise is admiration . Approval .
Worship .


No mention of the word G R A T I T U D E or G R A T E F U L .
But is this A N Y T H I N G   B E S I D E S what gratitude really is ?

Today, I want to 
W E L C O M E 
the  S O U R C E  of
A L L  blessings and
A D J U S T  + find the perfect  F R E Q U E N C Y  of my heart
in order to 
O U T W A R D L Y   E X P R E S S
A D O R A T I O N   +   W O R S H I P  . 

A   F E W   R E M A I N : :

I would love to have others join in taking small moments each day to begin filling each empty space in a gratitude notepad like my own . Writing those W O R D S, those reminders off all that you may have to be grateful for .  Already sent out several notepads, but a few remain . . . so join in the goodness, you . 


And for a look into my thankful mind 1 1 . 1 8 . 2 0 1 2  :
