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 .
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 .

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 :
