I am Grateful
It’s not happy people that are grateful, it’s greatful people that are happy
Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee.
As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him.
They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!”
When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed.
One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice.
He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.
Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?”
Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”
What I want can rob me of what I have
Gratitude turns what we have into enough
Rejoice: Be happy
Are you in charge of your emotions or are your emotions in charge of you?
Rejoice (be happy) always, pray continually,
