The month of November has arrived and with it the celebration of Thanksgiving. So many times I'm guilty of looking at Thanksgiving as just a time to spend with family. This year, I want to focus each day on being grateful; grateful for the many things I've been blessed with. I've begun a 30 Day's Of Gratitude project. Each day I look for one thing that I'm thankful for and then capture that in a photo. Some are big things like family and home, other's are small ordinary things I encounter. Some may be serious, some may be funny. It's all in how I see things that day.
Day 1 ~ I'm grateful for the colors in nature.
Day 2 ~ This morning I was grateful for a very small thing. I'm thankful that I finally found a cereal that does not get soggy before it's all eaten. I really, really don't like soggy cereal!!
Day 3 ~ My heart is filled with gratitude for the beautiful day my sister and I spent with our mom and dad! We traveled to the small town of Rush, AR, enjoyed a picnic lunch, and soaked in the beauty of fall in the Ozark Mountains!
Day 4 ~ I'm grateful for a wonderful worship service this morning! The beautiful music brought me peace and joy!
Day 5 ~ After the drought we experienced this summer, I'm grateful for every little drop of rain we receive!
Day 6 ~ I'm grateful for our little piece of land in this wonderful nation!
I hope you'll join me each day and
find sometime big or small that you're grateful for.
You don't have to take pictures, maybe you could just make a list!
Whatevery you do,
enjoy this season of thanksgiving!
"In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
1 Thessalonians 5:19 (KJV)
