Remember, it is through the grace of God that we receive every good thing we have on this earth. We are indebted to our Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ for everything. But within that great, magnificent plan, we have moral agency to choose, and our choices determine our destination.
Ed J. Pinegar, “31 Days to a Better You”, Deseret Book 2020
There's a lot in life that I take for granted. From the very beat of my heart to the sun rising in each new day. I try to be cognizant of the small things and be thankful in my heart for those things. But...in practice, I forget or get distracted.
One of the things I want to do and one of the things I intend to do is keep a gratitude journal. This forces me to be cognizant of the small things. Most of the time, I neglect to write in it but I want to. But you and I know it's what I do that counts, not so much what I "want" to do.
So I'm going to start by just recording 2 or 3 things each day. I'm not going to write a paragraph or 2. Just a few things. And they need to be different from the days before.
That's the plan anyway. 😁
