Intentional Change

Change is intentional.

Our head now knows that eucharisteo is the foundation for moving into a fullness of life. We want JOY, but how do we overcome our own self-destructive habits that keep us sad, discouraged, or defeated?

How do we DO? Like the sun as the morning dawns, a thought is getting stronger - there must be action on my part. Can I take the pen and begin to be thankful? 

What if I challenged you to show your thankfulness; to take up your pen and list the gifts you already have? Can I/you list a Thousand Gifts?

7. Tiny buds peeking through branches that endured the winter
8. Worship music softly filling my home
9. Chatty visit of my daughter

Start writing them down in your journal - your gifts - gifts God has already bestowed. "It is sort of like ... unwrapping love".

11. Clean clothes fresh from the dryer
12. Pink cherry blossoms bursting in the orchards
