Gratitude. We all have so much for which to be grateful everyday. So many of our social problems could be solved by more people focusing on the good they have been given and not on the bad, the slights, the wrongs they have experienced.
Bad things happen. Injustice is a constant among humans. Evil will never right the wrongs, only make them worse and lead to more evil. Gratitude takes what you have been given and makes it enough. “Life is 10% what happens to us, and 90% how we respond to it,” said the wise Chuck Swindoll. And being offended does not happen to us; it is our choice to be offended. No one is a victim of offending. They are victims only of their own choice to be offended.
With that, I am going to post some beauty to ponder, for we are surrounded with great beauty in our environment and in good people around us every day. All pictures taken by me on various wilderness adventures.
