Gratitude & Serenity :: Few Words Thursday.


“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” Denis Waitly

Gratitude
The definition of Gratitude is the QUALITY of being thankful.
It’s a quality within the character of a person. One we must cultivate or that quality will be lost and what replaces it will be resentment. And resentment is a creature one does not want to contend with in this life. It’s a living parasite that will drain every ounce of gratitude and contentedness that a life has.
It’s a quality of being. Thankful.
The definition of Serenity is the state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled.
A place of contentedness we are promised by God. A Quiet assurance, forever.
Peaceful and Quiet Assurance...

Peaceful and Quiet Assurance…

Serenity

Serenity … It comes from that quality. The Quality of BEING thankful.

It’s something we do.

“Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.” – Gerard Way

This photographical post was inspired by Helen’s post, linked to her quote! Which was inspired by Tuesday at Ten’s word prompt for the week.
Thanks for coming by for a quick look. Blessings to you.
