I was out for a walk today in the beautiful sunshine and fresh air when I happened upon this tree that had turned an absolutely gorgeous orange. The leaves were falling and gracing the ground around it and the sunshine illuminated the tree as if in a perfect picture. The entire scene was one of peace and serenity. It made me smile.
I was so delighted my immediate response was "Thank you Jesus!" Then I smiled..... I realized I hadn't said "thank you Jesus" because of anything but a grateful heart. Not duty. Not trying to "be good" but because I was truly thankful.
Thank you Jesus for your faithfulness! Thank you for giving me a truly grateful heart. <3
