When you’re looking for joy, you will always find it hiding in your gratitude. (Source unknown)
Someone else has said, “Find joy by walking in gratitude.” In the “old days” people use to say “Thank you” a lot more than they seem to do today. Maybe that’s why we often think of those bygone days as happier times. Try saying “Thank you” more often. See if that doesn’t lift your spirits along with the person you’re thanking.
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give . . . for God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7).
