The Season of Thanksgiving!

Every day should be a day of thanksgiving but I think we put a little extra effort into it around this time of the year.  Thanksgiving is on Thursday, November 28 this year and time is fastly approaching. What are you thankful for?  Health? Peace? Joy? Your family? The list can go on and on.  I am thankful for everything.  God did not have to let me see this far and the things I have seen and experience along the way but I am glad that He did.

We can sometimes take the small things for granted.  When I experience my hospital visits, it makes me think.  I then start to talk to God and tell Him that I am sorry for taking this for granted because if it is taken away from me, I would not know how to handle it.  Life can be simple if you allow it to.  There will be things along the way that can throw us off track but it’s up to you to get back on.  We wrestle against so much in our daily lives we loose focus.  But God shows a small sign to remind you hey I’m here to take care of you…just trust Him!!

As we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, take a minute and sit down and make a list of what you are thankful for. You can even go as far as putting the good and bad on the list.  I thank God for the bad things because it allows me to learn from it and keep going.  Look around you and realize how blessed you are.  We sometimes get so caught up in material things, that we overlook the natural things.  I will post my list later.  Be blessed and be thankful!!!
