all day, in all things

i saw this on Pinterest this week. can you imagine? how thankful am i that showing God my utmost gratitude has become like breathing to me? my eyes see things and places and moments and people, but my heart sees love-gifts from God in it all. "thank you, Lord," lives on the tip of my tongue and is the whisper in my mind all day, every day, in all things. gratitude is my lifestyle. everything is from the Maker! i wake up in the morning and i fall asleep each night recounting gifts and giving thanks to God.
