what do you do in your life to recognize and remember god's kindnesses?

#2. well this week i am so grateful for the gift of repentance. where would i be without it? not where i am that is for sure. i am still blown away every time i think about what he did for us, for me. what courage and love it had to have taken. he didn't have to do that for us, he could have chosen a different path. i am so grateful he did though. oh so grateful. i know that i am an imperfect sinner, and i continue to do the same things over and over, but this time is different. i want to be better, and i want to improve. i don't want to keep making the same mistakes over and over and not using the atonement to my fullest capabilities. i want to prove to the Lord that his sacrifice matters to me. i want to do better, be better, and become a much better person in his eyes. i love the gift of repentance, and i hope i never take it for granted ever again.
