“If we magnified blessings as much as magnify disappointments, we would all be much happier.” — John Wooden (1910-2010), American basketball coach and player.

But what if we spend as much time remembering and dwelling on our blessings and our successes? What difference would that make to us? I’m sure you will agree, we would be much happier, wouldn’t we?

So, let’s make a decision today to stop dwelling on our disappointments and to magnify our blessings, giving thanks to God for all those good things in our lives.
