Today’s daily gratitude is wine.
“Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.”
— Benjamin Franklin
We’ve become fond of Yellow Tail’s Merlot, which can be had for a steal at Costco.
That’s where we get it, and we generally have a glass with dinner. It’s such a delish treat, and is such a nice and inexpensive wine choice. Especially on Wednesday nights, when I almost never have a meeting, it’s so great to have dinner and a glass. Tonight, it’s Tortilla Encrusted Tilapia and Broccoli. Yum.
Of course, alcohol is a substance that can definitely be abused, and that abuse causes some people great heartache in life. I’m very aware of friends who have an issue with it. So, moderation is an important thing, for sure.
But today’s Daily Grat is wine…gratitude for being able to enjoy it and trusting that, like Franklin said (and Jesus too, for that matter…) it can be a sign of God’s love for us.
(During this year, my goal is to find something new to be thankful for every single day, and to add that thanksgiving as a blog entry, under the title “My Daily Gratitude.” I started this kick back around Thanksgiving, and it’s already resulted in a favorite new song of mine. The goal of this ongoing spiritual exercise is to see if doing such a thing might inspire even more gratitude within me, and to foster general awareness of life on a deeper level.)
