  Gratitude

Thank you everyone for you kind words of welcome back. I am not sure exactly how I am going to use the Blog this time around. For starters however, I thought I would share what I am grateful for today.

 
Comments:
That'll do nicely.
 
Good Morning Ms. Trudge.
 
Hey Trudging - you "know" me under my anonymous handle - I realized after I left my comment that you might not know my "real" personality :D

Thanks for visiting my other blog!
 
Lovely to see you post again.

I am sure you will figure it out.
 
I'm a new kid on the blog block and found you as I trudged around :-) I got sober in 1990 when you started blogging, but I had to really struggle to get back. I have God, AA, and determination to thank for that. Your profile says you like other people's stories, resilience, and God. I would be honored if you would visit my blog and read "My AA Recovery Story" and my Sept. 13 post about gratitude following relapse. Is it appropriate to ask that of you? I trust my Higher Power led me to your blog for a reason, so I'll be back.

Just glad that you are back. I often wonder how Scout, Meg and JJ are doing. Enjoy your day.
 
bizarrely, I was thinking aboutr you in the last few weeks, I only checked your blog today!!
welcome back :)
 
yeah i was wondering about you too in the last week. I don't normally :) anyway. glad to see you posting, and i'm sure you'll figure out what you want to say. the people that matter don't mind, and the people that mind don't matter, so it doesnt make much difference anyway. hope you're well :)
 
God is with you today! I'm glad I was led to see this!
 
Very thoughtfull post on gratitude. It should be very much helpfull

Thanks,

Merry Christmas Trudge. Still miss you.
 
Me again. Was driving to Dubuque this past week and thought of you. I couldn't get there due to weather - imagine that! January in Iowa...

Hope you are well.
 
Hey trudging! Please add me as a link to your blog!

You are a great writer!
 
Jesus was very clear in what we must do in order to have Him ABIDE in us and we in Him.

He left this command for us in John 6:53-57, and it is the only place in Holy Scripture in which you will find it:

53 "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you (the taken away branch);

54 he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

55 For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

56 HE WHO EATS MY FLESH AND DRINKS MY BLOOD ABIDES IN ME, AND I IN HIM.

57 As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats me will live because of me."


What does "Truly, truly" mean to you in verse 53? What does "unless" mean?

The body lives because it receives real food sustenance. Starve the body and it will die.

Just as the body needs real sustenance, so does the soul, else it will not bear fruit.

The soul lives by real Divine sustenance, the true presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
 
thanks for your kindness.
