This time of year we really miss our five sons!  Our five acres of land are home to numerous trees.  The wooded area, where our scripture trails are, creates a challenge when it comes to removing the leaves.  My husband has calculate that is takes him 43 man hours to complete our leaf work each fall.  God has been amazing to provide help through our church and the Young Life ministry the past few years. At our ages it is no longer a one man job.  Seeing the magnitude of this project, these young people know that we are sincerely grateful.

I'm having the best time starting my morning with Psalms of Gratitude.  It is the current She Reads Truth study. As I began with Psalm 100, I did a self-check to see how many of these actions I'm carrying out.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his ; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

An attitude of gratitude is such a healthy place to hangout.
