Acts 24:3 (NIV)

3 Everywhere and in every way, most excellent Felix, we acknowledge this with profound gratitude

Colossians 3:16 (NIV)

16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.

My eyes opened and I saw the sun streaming through the window.  My lungs pumped in air without hesitation or wheeze  and when I rolled over and pushed myself up, I was able to do so.  As my feet touched the floor, I did not hear the usual and customary  snap, crack and pop of my bones realigning.

This is yet another day that the Lord has made and blessed me to see and I am filled with gratitude!!

Making His praise glorious!

17 Whatever you say or do, do it in the name of the Lord Jesus. Give thanks to God the Father through the Lord Jesus.  Colossians 3:17 (NLV)

I have no doubt that a great deal of thought went into the most recent “Dave” commercial for Staples. Dave is everyone in his office, from receptionist, copy repairman, assistant and CEO every person is Dave.  Dave wears many hats, and is very cheerfully busy and in every instance shares a word and a smile.

Throughout my life I have worn a variety of hats, not titles, but hats. Granted, unlike Dave, I may have groused and grumbled when a particular hat landed on my head. I mean, really who wants to gleefully carry buckets of mail in sweltering heat not wearing a postal uniform or the act of pouring vinegar into the office coffeemaker to clean it after the painfully slowest dripping pot before a large meeting? Professing to dedicate each day and each activity to the Lord means, I am to take pride in even the most menial tasks. I do not have to wait for housekeeping to pick up that piece of paper I see on the ground or take a second to push in a chair, just because.  Each act is an opportunity to serve, not only God but those around me. Lord, help me this and everyday to be cheerful in my service to You and others.
