Have you ever gone out of your way to give someone something they really need, only to have them turn up their nose, because it was NOT what they wanted, envisioned, or placed a request for the next thing on their list?  Or, better yet, it caused you to question your giving or leaving you depressed?  And then, on the other hand, you helped someone with something so simple, costing you much less and they were so grateful, leaving you ecstatic?  Of course, everyone will experience this periodically, and this is the reason for the As It Pleases God: Gratitude Journal.

 

When becoming grateful for all things, you will better prepare yourself to receive the Heavenly Blessings most would overlook.
