Gratitude Journal - Day 1
Lent is typically about giving something up, but it also a good time to take something on. This Lenten season, at our pastor's suggestion, the members of our church have taken on the practice of gratitude.
We will all keep gratitude journals during the 40 days of Lent in an effort to be more mindful of the blessings we have received. My journal will be kept here.
Day 1 - Ash Wednesday
I am grateful for our church at night.
For Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, and Maundy Thursday services and for all those of all ages who interrupt their busy lives and come out on cold and windy and snowy nights to sit in a chilly sanctuary....to be together as a community and worship God.
