Every day is a day to be grateful to God, but yesterday was a special one. First, let me share the Gratitude definition I found in the dictionary:

“Gratitude is the substance of a heart ready to show appreciation, or thankfulness; it is not simply an emotion, which involves a pleasant feeling that can occur when we receive a favor or benefit from another person but rather the combination of a state of being and an emotion; often accompanied by a desire to thank them, or to reciprocate for a favor they have done for you. In a religious context, gratitude can also refer to a feeling of indebtedness towards a deity, e.g. the expression of gratitude to God is a central theme of Christianity. One of the core indications of being a Christian is being grateful to God regardless of any human action taken towards you…”

God is a God of amazing surprises… Today I was looking at two friends who had their I-phones, interacting, checking e-mails and surfing the web. I was thinking; “When will I have one of those? It will be on your time, Oh Lord!”. Then later, I went to the “Galeria Mall” with Guy Shashaty, the Cooper City Campus pastor to help him select a new computer for his business. While we where at the Apple Store, he asked me, “Are you ready for an I-Phone?” I said “I’m ready, but not my pocket…” and I laughed… then he told the clerk, “Give him an I-phone”, I was shocked… speechless… I just said “Are you serious?” Well, he decided to give me one as a gift… just like that… GOD is amazing… Some times I don’t know how to say “thank you”, but there is something that we have to excercise every day: being grateful. Thanks Guy, thanks God!
