“Swimming in Gratitude”

Martha  Luke 10:38-42  ..tell her (Mary) to help me. The Lord said, “Martha you are anxious about many things. There is only need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.” Ignatius said that “Ingratitude was likely to cause and source of all evil and sin”. .and the “the truly grateful person can not be a sinful person for by being grateful for the good qualitie in others you come to love them more easily.”  Last night as we served the meals and many of the people who came through were high, broken difficult, I saw the good, and I loved them. That is what I have sought to do all these years is see the good in people, and when  I do, the negative falls away. It is seeing Jesus in the moment , and seeing what is at hand like Jesus told Martha that enable us to see the goodness in each person, forget about the past, and not dwell on what can be.  When I think of what could have been or what could be I get in trouble, people become objects who have hindered or who can promote, but seeing them in the present you can love them, treasure them, and serve them. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
