Getting What You Want part 2


In Part 1 we discovered Brick 1…………..defining EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT!

Brick 2 is BEING GRATEFUL!……………………Why would that matter? Who cares if you are grateful or not? YOU DO! EVERYBODY DOES!!!!

  1. You are unexpectedly late in getting home from a trip………bad weather, no communications, so for 3 days you aren’t home. When you do get home your neighbor across the street tells you he noticed that your trash can was out for 2 days at the street and he moved it back behind the house for you to avoid people knowing you weren’t home. He also noticed your dog in the back yard stayed outside all night and had no food or water so he provided both for “Jasper”. 

You had moved in only 6 months ago, so you didn’t really know the neighbors, but                you were thankful that he had moved the trash and fed your dog and told him you            appreciated his thoughtfulness.

NOTE: When the Angels brought the essence of life to Planet Earth perhaps millions of years ago……many different types of life forces were brought to see which ones would thrive and prosper and most of all, SURVIVE!  Many didn’t and were wiped out…..But the key piece of information here is that the Ones that did survive and beat all odds were the two that learned how to live together and profit from pooling different skills and talents to keep alive. And then there was only one! US (The Urantia Book)


Being Grateful and Thankful: Take a minute and thing about these things,

  1. If you are living in the USA, it has been over 130 years since we had a war on our soil! True we have fought wars but not here. When you look at many places around the world where children have never known peace (and quiet) maybe you realize just how fortunate we are and how grateful we ought to be!
  2. Expressing a thankfulness of our blessings opens a door for good to come into our lives.

Showing appreciation and thanksgiving is the cement that holds life together. Remember that and be thankful!

We will talk about Brick #3 next time…………..Intent
