Gratitude can be lived as a discipline. The discipline of gratitude is the explicit effort to acknowledge that all I am and have is given to me as a gift of love, a gift to be celebrated with joy.” What a profound idea to think of “gratitude” as a discipline, instead of simply as a fleeting emotion that depends on our circumstances.

“What is your name and who are you?” Let us all admit that our names also may also be “legion,” but with God’s help, we all can discover the special name He gave each of us at our creation. And this holy name is written in the Book of Life, awaiting us to claim it!
