This month we have been using the Psalms of Ascent to teach us about giving thanks and no journey of gratitude is complete without setting aside time to reflect and say thank you. If we don’t slow down we can’t see all the blessings of life. If we don’t slow down we can’t hear the voice of God and God’s message of love and grace. If we don’t slow down we simply can’t give thanks and so we need to learn how to linger and there is no better place than to linger with God. Linger with God so that our hearts and lives are prepared for a true Thanks-giving.
According to Reader’s Digest, laughter is the best medicine, but according to the Psalms of Ascent, laughter leads to gratitude, especially the ability to laugh at ourselves. Taking ourselves too seriously keeps us from trusting God and thanking God for all He has given us. Learn the value of humor and humility on the road to gratitude.
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” (George Santayana) While remembering the past is important, it is learning from our history that makes the difference. Learning from our past not only improves our lives but it can lead us to gratitude and praise when we see the hand of God. We continue our journey to Thanksgiving and to giving thanks using the Psalms of the Ascent as our guide.
