so yeah, only when you finally give *thanks* — will you finally get to be *joyful*. Being joyful isn’t what makes you grateful … being *grateful* is what makes you *joyful*. Gratitude in our circumstance is as essential to our wholeness— as any change in our circumstances. Any deep healing in our lives will always be deeply associated with deep gratitude. #1000gifts
Maya Angelou. It's true; if someone isn't happy with themselves, doesn't know how to love and care for themselves first, no one will make them happy and they won't really know how to love anyone else in return. Want to know true love? Get to know Jesus. Jesus = God & God = love.
