This past year I read a book called One Thousand Gifts.
In it, the author decided to start a list of all of things she was thankful for. Throughout the process of writing and reflecting, Voskamp shares how her attitude, her perspective, and her focused shifted away from the negative and mundane to the positive and life giving and most importantly, back to the life-giver.
I hope this month of thanks will do the same. It’s easy in the midst of life… and in the disappointments… to loose your thankfulness. I certainly have lost mine over these last few months. November is a fresh start. A new beginning. A chance to reflect and remember all of the great gifts the Lord has given.
This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Day 1: After days of rain from “frankenstorm” I am supremely grateful for the sunshine, for its warmth shining through the window on my skin, and for the beauty it brings as it sparkles on God’s creation.
