"Gratitud" is the Spanish word meaning thankfulness (like the English word gratitude). I have been pondering this morning all the things in my life for which I am grateful. I have come to realize that many of them I take for granted everyday:
Having food and actually choosing which foods I want to eat.
Having a comfortable home and bed
The privilege of having a baby
Enough clothes to wear everyday and plenty to give away
Not being cold at night (Darjeeling, India taught me about this one)
Family, Friends and an AMAZING YWAM community that loves and cares for my family and I
And probably so much more that I am forgetting!
This coming Holiday season I want to allow God to interrupt me, and even when everything around us is yelling at us BUY MORE, GET MORE, YOU NEED THIS, YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH...
I want him to fill my heart with enormous "Gratitud" for all that I DO HAVE.
