Do you write down things each day that you’re especially thankful for – like in a journal or on a calendar?
Confession: I don’t, but I know I should. Someone (and you know who you are, my email friend. 🙂 ) inspired me recently because she was saying that she planned to start doing that.
I think writing things down makes us appreciate our blessings more. Do you? Journaling our thankfulness makes us more intentional about being thankful for those blessings.
While thinking about and planning for the Thanksgiving gatherings we’ll enjoy this week, I’ve thought a lot about my blessings. No matter how little or how much we have, we all have reasons to be thankful.
Gee…even the basics are reasons for Praise because God provides every breath we take! He designed creation itself for all of us to enjoy.
I’m reminded of our 80-degree Friday heat and the sudden plummet to 57 degrees the next day. We often complain about the weather, but we can be thankful for some part of it. Our weather change brought rain for some areas that were needed so badly! We didn’t get any, but at least some did.
I’ll gladly wear a jacket for some to get rain out of the deal!
I noticed something on this picture below. Above the November month on my wall calendar (that I keep inside a cabinet door), it looks like someone is writing something in a notebook. What a coincidence, eh?
And, woo-hoo, another coincidence. Krispy Kreme made the picture and is part of our family history as one of our favorite special treat spots. I’m thankful for Krispy Kreme and all the memories attached to that place. Sweet, delicious memories of our smiling kids watching the donuts travel through the warm fountain of love….
Another confession – I stole that “fountain of love” quote from D, my Georgia 2 AM friend, because it’s the perfect name for that glaze coating in action.
Let’s grab any calendar or notebook and start writing down something we’re thankful for each day. Anything can become a journal – even a school-type notebook. Once you write in it, voila! – it’s a journal. 🙂
Are you with me in this?
Let’s praise the Lord today with thanksgiving for all of His blessings upon us, whether we’ve written them in a notebook or not!
