Stained glass at St John the Baptist’s Anglican Church http://www.stjohnsashfield.org.au, Ashfield, New South Wales. Illustrates Jesus’ description of himself “I am the Good Shepherd” (from the Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 11). This version of the image shows the detail of his face. The memorial window is also captioned: “To the Glory of God and in Loving Memory of William Wright. Died 6th November, 1932. Aged 70 Yrs.” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

O God, show us how to have a grateful heart.
There is so much for which we can be grateful. Instead of looking at our limitations, what we cannot do any more, be thankful for what you can do.
Letting go of worrying and trust that God is with us in the hard times but is also there, at the same time with the other gifts He has given us. So often we forget the many gifts we still have. BE THANKFUL!!! Hold tight to the Hand of God, who desires a grateful heart.
When we become thankful our attitude and life radiates our whole being and a Christ-like radiance.
