There is something extraordinary about this time of the year……Autumn……so richly steeped in abundance.  The warm harvest colors, home fires burning, family gatherings around grateful tables graced with food and  loving faces, are but a few of our abundant gifts at this season.  One of the strongest emotions coming from these Autumn gifts is Gratitude.  Often, God whispers to us when we are feeling the most grateful.  When we listen to His promptings we have the choice to act on them and  when we do, almost always we become our best selves.
