Beginning Again

I'm starting again with counting the gifts He's given me.

Sometimes I just need to "begin again", and make a fresh new start.

I have a new journal awaiting a few flourishes, and I have determined to be more deliberate with my gratitude journal and with giving thanks in community this year.

Thou hast given so much to me,

Give one thing more, - a grateful heart;

Not thankful when it pleaseth me,

As if Thy blessings had spare days,

But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.

~George Herbert
