Acknowledging gifts. Turns frowns upside down. Cheesy statement, but changing the attitude of the mind and the heart also changes our actions and reactions. Before gifts, discontentment, heartache, heartbreak, sadness, frustration, silliness, waywardness, ungratefulness. After gifts, recognizing God's hand in each individual act, measure of gift, goodness, blessing changes us from the inside out. Not only for that moment, or moments, but when we reflect, these gifts become like Ebenezer's, stones of remembrance of the goodness, the blessed-ness of God, in His in-fine-ite MERCY.
