On Gratitude

“Let the peace that Christ gives control your thinking. It is for peace that you were chosen to be together in one body. And always be thankful.” Colossians 3:15

On Gratitude

Gratitude is an attitude,
Confuse it not with happiness.
~
I have been ungrateful and happy.
I have been grateful and unhappy.
I have been ungrateful and unhappy.
~
Gratitude is an attitude,
Confuse it not with togetherness.
~
I have been ungrateful with everyone together.
I have been grateful and grieving alone.
I have been ungrateful and friendless.

Gratitude is an attitude,
Confuse it not with celebration.
~
I have been ungrateful in great wins.
I’ve been grateful on high occasions.
I’ve been grateful in small moments.
~
Gratitude is an attitude,
Confuse it not with comfort.
~
I have been ungrateful in contented times.
I’ve been grateful in painful woe.
I’ve been ungrateful in relative easy days.
~
Live in the spacious room of gratitude.
We alone decide. Moment by moment.
