Quarterly Breakdown of Gratitude Highlights in 2012

Source

Listing accomplishments, keeping a gratitude journal and writing down the times God's faithfulness made a way out of none and delivered you, are a few effective spiritual practices that will strengthen your faith, boost your spirit, soothe your soul and increase your joy upon regular review. I share my 2012 gratitude highlights and invite you to create a list of your own. I believe it can help you to fully realize and appreciate all that you do, as well as trust God on deeper levels for the more He desires to do in your life.
