Thankful Thursday

"You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father."

Matthew 5:13-16

Today I'm thankful for salt. As salt—you & me—we preserve & we season the world with our lives. So what we do and what we don't do really does matter, like ripples in a pool. Even our attitudes matter: Do we accept or not? Do we help or not? Do we forgive or not?

Another great thing about salt is that a little goes a long way. So something small, like a sweet, little girl or a "what if" idea or a search on a a charitable Web site, can really change the entire trajectory of a path, a life, a community. That's powerful.

What are you thankful for today?
