Going Gratitudinal – Part 5

Today’s “Gratitudinal” Scripture passage is from Ephesians 1:16:

I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.

Rabbi Harold Kushner challenges us: “Can you see the holiness in those things you take for granted–a paved road or a washing machine? If you concentrate on finding what is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.”

What are the ordinary things in my life that I take for granted?
Who are the people I take for granted?
Can I, by expressing my gratitude, transform them to something or someone far beyond ordinary?

Just an ordinary poppy. . . Or is it?
