How often have you wished someone you helped had said “Thanks,” but they never did? Or how often have you neglected to thank someone who did you a huge favor — and you didn’t even know about the favor till years later?

Over the years, we’ve often talked about the power of gratitude. And also about how often we deeply touch the lives of people we’ve known only briefly, or not at all.

Today, with our world in its current state, many folks are wondering how they can be grateful when everything seems to be going to hell.


Well, let us begin today by saying your world is not going to hell, as Johnny said. It only seems that way.

What is happening is this: you are undergoing the biggest, most powerful transformation in human history. It’s that simple.

So you all have much to be thankful for.

Thankful to whom? To God, Goddess—whoever you perceive as the divine force that created and sustains the universe.

You have much to be grateful for. Right now, there doesn’t seem a lot of light out there. But just beyond the veil of darkness there is a huge inflow of light and love. That inflow is going to totally transform each one of you individually. And your entire planet.

This is a time to rejoice, especially as you embark on your new year of 2021.

Give thanks to the Creator for the flood of light and love you are about to experience. Give thanks to yourselves, and to all your sisters and brothers, for having the courage to enter into this exciting journey of transformation.

These are the best of times. Be grateful.

Soon the darkness will vanish forever. And you will experience more light and love than you or your planet have ever known.

    So many wonderful things are happening that we don’t take the time to notice. We block ourselves with fear and Why me! Let’s let it go all that fear, all that worry and doubt and grasp what is in front of us. Look outside, watch the animals, the birds, the snow on the walk. It takes only a small step, the quick look, that smile and gloriously that joy that is out there.

    I’m thankful for John and Spirit who helps us in so many ways. Thanks John and Spirit. Your guidance is always a loving joyful light. I’m thankful for the Being that thought to create me, that listened to my plea to become a person in this world and in this time.

    Today my son went and picked up some things right away even though I said he can wait until he is on his way home but he did it right away. I am thankful for my son for all our children in this world and the next and all other worlds.

    We do have much to be thankful for. One more thing, I’m thankful for my Spirit that always upholds me, that is always there for me, for the love, compassion and joy It gives me. I return it 10 fold!

    love and hugs to everyone, keep on keeping on and smile for you are loved!
