Beloveds, I’m often asked: “How do you stay positive in a crisis?” Truth is that the pool of pessimism will call my name before the porch of positivity invites me to sit down.  You have to work at it!

I practice my spiritual disciplines daily whether it is prayer, praise, study, meditation, worship, fasting and more. I read devotionals, an interesting  book and utilize various apps like Abide and Calm.

How you start your day is important. I start my day with a simple gratitude prayer before engaging the humans in my living or virtual space.  I write them in the new journal just for this COVID-19 global health pandemic to preserve my thoughts, ideas and even my fears.

I’m inviting you to join me to do the same in a special Gratitude Project.

  1. Pray a gratitude pray daily.
  2. Write at least two things about what you’re grateful for in your journal or record them on your computer, tablet or cell phone.
  3. Share what you’re grateful for in the comment section on this site or on my social media. Let’s get this gratitude train going and keep it going!

HELP ME reach 2,000 people or more daily with this Gratitude Project. We can do this! Let’s be partners in hope, carriers of optimism and purveyors of joy!

Love your neighbor as yourself and wash your hands, stop touching your face and …sigh…practice social distancing.

Let’s gt started:


I’m grateful for life itself!

I’m grateful for a new week to explore a deeper relationship with those around me and those I can only connect or reconnect virtually.

Gracious Lord, help me to live one day at a time with a fresh plan of fulfillment. Empower me to act on your divine ideas received in moments of prayer and inspiration. In Jesus name, Amen
