Cultivating a Life of Gratitude

I am committing myself, during 2010, to attempt to cultivate a greater awareness of how much I have to be thankful and grateful for by sharing my daily findings and musings with you. It is my hope that by blogging about gratitude, I will be more aware of what is going on around me in my life, my family, my friends' lives and our world.

Found Alive


This is my sister's coworker, Dan and his wife.  My sister works closely with him at Compassion.  He was missing for 65 hours.  Not only am I incredibly thankful that he was found alive, but I am in awe of his attitude and great faith.  Here is someone who literally faced death head on and is living to tell about it.  What an example of unwavering faith.   I am amazed at how Jesus shines so clearly through this man and his wife in this interview with Meredith.  PTL!  Seeing the wreckage is also a powerful reminder to be in prayer for the recovery efforts that continue on in Haiti.

  1. At Compassion we have chapel on a few Wednesday every month. This morning, we heard from our president, Wess Stafford's, pastor.

    He spoke about the fact that there is a time to mourn with those who mourn, and a time to dance. And as believers, we are called 'multi-task' and mourn and dance at the same time, without feeling guilty. We are called to dance with God despite our broken bones, because he calls us to him. It was really encouraging, as we rejoice that Dan is found but mourn that the videographer who was traveling with him is still missing.
