Joy A N D suffering .
Good A N D bad .
Sickness A N D health .
Richer A N D poorer .
It reminds me of the vows I made over five years ago now. When I said to my love that A N Y circumstance life may bring about would inspire an equal degree of commitment to our marriage .
That is L O V E .
So naturally, love for God, the maker of A L L things, is pure when in A L L circumstances - joy A N D suffering - inspire an equal degree of gratitude for him .
Gratitude doesn't end at all things good . Gratitude doesn't end at all . Because joy A N D suffering, good A N D bad, sickness A N D health, richer A N D poorer all have contributed to my advancement and I can be grateful for it A L L .

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 0 . 2 0 1 2 :
