Sister Valerie Sweeney, director of mission and ministry at Jennings, offers a short weekly update about spirituality, chosen from a variety of sources and faith traditions to help deepen our inner selves. This week’s topic is GRATITUDE:

 Quote: The greatest thing is to give thanks for everything. He who has learned this knows what it means to live. He has penetrated the whole mystery of life: giving thanks for everything.
— Albert Schweitzer

Practices:

  • Every time I walk in the door of my home, I am reminded to count my blessings.
  • Picking up a utensil to eat a meal is a reminder to be grateful.
  • Each night think of three things you are grateful for that day.
