Thankfulness & Gratitude

 

“Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude.  Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness.  Thankfulness may consist of merely words.  Gratitude is shown in acts.”
Henri Frederic Amiel –(1821-1861) Swiss philosopher & poet

Hoping and praying I can translate my thankfulness to gratitude– moving on from just feeling thankful, to caring well for people around me to show real overflowing gratitude.

“‘So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to lives your lives in him,  rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”  –Colossians 2:6-7

 

P.S. The Matilija Poppy at the top was blooming everywhere in Ojai on a recent trip there– so striking, large as my hand!
