it’s the day before thanksgiving, i know – i can’t believe it either – and i really want to walk in to tomorrow thinking about more than just the delicious food i will be eating. i want to take this moment, this day before, to gather my thoughts and turn my heart back to the whole reason we should be celebrating this holiday. not for the great black friday deals the day after, not to put in over time at work….but to really reflect on the year – on our lives – and truly appreciate and offer gratitude for all of the good that has walked in.
i’ve scribbled out a small, definitely not all encompassing list of some things that i’m thankful for.
so will you join me on list-making today?
i’m thankful for…
+ a Lord who forgives
+ a job that provides
+ new chapters
+ a family that stands by my side
+ my home
+ deep conversations that challenge
+ long-lasting hugs
+ a brother who stays close to me
+ a heart that is never willing to be content with passivity
+ quiet mornings & evenings
+ a fireplace to heat a room
+ people who invest in my life
+ wise discernment
…and so much more.
