An Attitude of Gratitude.

By Tombasson @tombasson


So often when preaching on a topic I find myself having to really live it out in the weeks before… This Sunday my wife & I are both preaching on giving thanks in ALL situations, and in the last 10 days the following has happened:

  • I have broken my foot, requiring painful surgery.
  • I’ve had to cough up over R15 000 ($1000) in unexpected car issues.
  • Our cat was hit by a car and badly injured.
  • My wife’s laptop was stolen.
  • Our whole family got a bad gastro bug (I’ll spare you the details!)
  • Plus two fairly devastating work incidents that I can’t mention.

And yet…

To be honest I am feeling GRATEFUL, because there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for. I am thankful for:

  • The fact that we have cars.
  • That our cat survived.
  • Medical Aid that covers most of my surgery.
  • Insurance that enables us to replace the laptop.
  • Our usually very healthy family.
  • My job.

This is what I’m learning:

It’s not happy people who are thankful. It’s thankful people who are happy.
