Most people are conscious of the blessings in their lives during this time of year. Thanksgiving followed by Christmas make us very aware of how fortunate we are. But what I’d like to do is encourage each and every one of you to make gratitude a part of your daily life.
Gratitude is a choice, just like faith and believing is a choice and sometimes it behooves us to meditate on the blessings in our lives every day! Even when things seem to be at their absolute worst, there is always something to be grateful for.
One of the things I’m grateful for in my life is this talent, this gift from God to write. Whether it be through novels, short stories, articles, poems/devotionals or blog posts, I do my best to show my gratitude and to share with you my faith and His goodness.
Here’s a little poem I wrote which encapsulates my feelings about the holiday season:
As we journey through this special time of year
We give Thanks, share Joy, and spread lots of Cheer
Let us keep in mind that life is a gift and offer God praise
And always remember to keep the holidays, Holy Days.
So as you approach this Thanksgiving Day remember to be grateful for every blessing, whether small or large…because God will not give you something else to complain about!
