Eukharistia :: A Life of Thanksgiving :: When you sit down to eat, pray. When you eat bread, do so thanking Him for being so generous to you. If you drink wine, be mindful of Him who has given it to you for your pleasure and as a relief in sickness. When you dress, thank Him for His kindness in providing you with clothes. When you look at the sky and the beauty of the stars, throw yourself at God's feet and adore Him who in His wisdom has arranged things in this way. Similarly, when the sun goes down and when it rises, when you are asleep or awake, give thanks to God, who created and arranged all things for your benefit, to have you know, love and praise their Creator ~ Saint Basil the Great

John 3:16 :: Read this out loud :: "For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son, so that (insert your name here) who believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
