This is Your Wake Up Call!

The Gratitude Project – Healing Garden

Gratitude Changes everything. Let’s change the world together!

Colleen N. Hawthorne, M.D. is on the front line of health care responders. Pray for her as she serves. She’s grateful. She’s grateful for the expanse of God’s garden that offer peace and clarity to everyone who stop to smell the flowers along the way. Send her blessings in the comment section. Selah!

Today, I’m grateful to walk in God’s healing garden.

“My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all day long, thought their number is past my knowledge.
Psalm 71: 15-16

Let us pray out loud:

Almighty and Everlasting God, you have richly blessed us beyond our imaginations. If it had not been for the presence of Christ in our lives, we would have perished a long time ago.  You reached beyond the noise of this world to speak to our hearts of your grace and glory. You captured our attention with a love too wonderful for words. We eagerly turn from our texting, tweeting, thinking and tinkering ever mindful of the call to be “doers of your word.”

For flowers, colors, earth and the renewal of spring, we thank you. Help us take advantage of this time to walk slowly, smell the freshness of the air, the fragrance of your blossoms and dig deep into the soil of the earth and our souls.

We can’t help but sing of your righteous acts. We sing of your deeds of salvation even though only a fraction is known to us.  In Jesus name, we worship you and you alone, not ourselves or each other. Amen

    I’m grateful for the rain that saturates the earth and helps to sustain the seeds that sprout in Spring!

  2. I am grateful for the Clean air that I am breathing and the lungs that God healed and that I can hear…the birds singing outside my window!! But by the Grace of God I can do these things and experience God’s beauty in nature.
