"Practicing Gratitude" 
 
"with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs unto the Lord."
 - Colossians 3:16

 

November 2, 2014

 

Recently I had the opportunity to read Brene Brown’s The Gifts of Imperfection.  In it, she reflects on how persons can life wholehearted lives.  One of the practices that she reflects upon is “cultivating gratitude and joy.”  As I reflected on her words and looked back over my life, I remembered those who journeyed alongside me.  Renecca Pinnock, the first woman I ever knew who went to seminary and taught me about loving God with both my head and heart, she has now gone home to be with the Lord.  I remember my godparents, the Dawkins family and the Peynados, who taught be about getting on my knees, calling on God and the power of prayer. I remember my friend Crystal Kirksey, who taught me through our work in Street Ministry about loving homeless, transgendered prostitutes with AIDS, my neighbors, as my own family, as myself.   I remember W. Franklyn Richardson, the Sr. Pastor of the church I first served at, who taught me how people of faith can transform the communities that they are in for the better.
