Pure Grace

This may sound kinda funny, but I found this passage on a bottle of Pure Grace Shampoo/Shower Gel/Bubble Bath by philosophy! It just struck me as such a good word that I wrote it down to keep.  Just thought I'd share with you, in keeping with the theme of my last few posts:

"To learn to live our lives in a state of gratitude is easier said than done.  And yet that is actually the master class we take when we finally make it from Kindergarten  to graduate school.  Be thankful for the bad times as well as the good times.  Remind yourself that we learn and become so much more from the hard lesson rather than the easy one.  Hardship is the master teacher that tells us to breathe more deeply, laugh harder, love deeper, hug longer, and kiss more often.

One of the best tools for longevity and good health is not just taking a walk outdoors but taking your walk while holding the hand of God.  When we walk in gratitude for each and every moment, we empower ourselves by empowering our spirits.  When we breathe in nature though our eyes, ears, and lips, we become certain that not only are our souls eternal, but that God knows how to manage our lives, our troubles, our worries and our days better than we do.  So today and every day, "let go and let God.""

Kristi, gratitude has been on my mind, too. It's the theme of my current newsletter, in fact. I'm doing a giveaway for anyone who subscribes to it. If you'd like to try for it, come over and sign up when you get a chance! Be blessed!
