365 Moments Of Gratitude – Thankful For Social Media


Social Media is a powerful tool, and can be leveraged to build up, or to tear down. I am grateful right now for social media because God is able, through it to foster friendships and cultivates relationships in places otherwise unlikely.

I just sit here right now, grateful. I am able to chat with a friend in a different continent, clear across the ocean – all courtesy of social media. Many relationships can be torn apart, or strengthened by resources online. I choose social media to be a platform to spread love, to reach out, and to connect with people globally.

When I see someone hurting – whether I know them or not – I do not hesitate to reach out and let them know they matter, and that they are loved. Likewise, I have had much encouragement, support friendship and prayers courtesy of the internet.

Social media isn’t evil. It’s all in how you use it. Use it as a tool to strengthen others, to share love, hope and grace. Treat others how you’d like to be treated. It really is that simple.

So yes, I am grateful today for social media – and the relationships, friendships, support, encouragement and prayers that happen as a result.

365 Moments Of Gratitude – Thankful For Packaging Tape


Yes, today I am thankful for packaging tape. If you are anything like me, you may have plenty of this around the house — except when it’s actually needed. I’m not kidding. I think tape grows legs and runs away and hides.

I know today is a silly post, but I just located the much sought after packaging tape, and I’m pretty grateful. (Guess the person on the other end of my online transaction will also be happy to get their package!)

Seriously guys, take a moment today to just think of one thing (even as trivial as packaging tape) to be thankful for.
