Giving thanks is not just a reaction to something that has happened or been given to us. It is causative! Giving thanks, in advance, brings our good to us! (Actually, through us.) Gratitude can and should be an attitude in which we daily dwell! To not dwell in thanksgiving is to frustrate the divine flow. We are emanations of that Presence we call God, Spirit, Divine Mind. Our purpose, here, is to be, expressions of its allness; peaceful, joyful, healthy, prosperous and successful in all that we do.
