Grateful people healthier

If you’re interested, check out the front of the Wall Street Journal’s Personal Journal section, (11/23) “Health Journal” focuses on continuing research that is finding people who maintain an attitude of gratitude have more energy, more optimism, more social connections, and more happiness than those who do not. Researchers are also finding that gratitude provides similar benefits in children. The research is said to be part of the “positive psychology” movement. Of course, this is nothing new. The Bible says, “Give thanks in all circumstances.”  Clearly God knows the benefits of genuine gratitude.

re: the random-ness

Husband. Father. Senior Pastor of Parkview Community Church in Glen Ellyn, IL.

Ok...so you've located the place where I put down my random thoughts. The key word here is random: music, sports, art, food, books, news, spiritual musings, weird stories, etc. I'm especially interested in how everyday experiences of life intersect with the ancient stories of Scripture. Thanks for reading.
