Blessings All Mine #701-718

Untitled-1

Yesterday in Sunday School we had a discussion of Thanksgiving and what it means to really give thanks, especially at this time of the year.

The comment was made that in the middle of the busyness and traditions of Thanksgiving, it can be difficult to give thanks.

I agree. It can.

But it doesn’t have to be so!

Thanks isn’t something that we give only during the Thanksgiving holidays.

Thanks isn’t to be offered only during the month of November.

Thanks is to be given and to be lived out every day of the year as we acknowledge that everything…every single blessing that we have comes from our Father in Heaven.

Thanksgiving is given as we realize that all good in our life is a blessing.

Thanksgiving is given as we offer up thanks even in the difficult and hard seasons of life.

It is easy to give thanks when we’re stopping to count our blessings and to give thanks for them every day of the year. When giving thanks becomes an essential part of our lives.

This week I am thankful for so much as I count the blessings of my week here…

      Thank you!

      I have a post coming out this week about the beans (probably on Wednesday). They’ve been a great motivation for our little ones!
