30 Days of Thanks

Every other year, I'd already be a few days into my annual 30 Days of Thanks project. I even contemplated not doing it this year at all. If you read my last post, (Burnout) you'd understand my frame of mind right now.  I do know there is something that happens to us, when we take the focus off ourselves/our issues/our problems and direct our praise and thanks to the "Giver of all good gifts".  I may be getting a reluctant start this year, but I know that the process will all be worthwhile.  

I give thanks:
  • for forgiveness

  • for second chances

  • for this promise:  "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze."  Isaiah 43:2

  • for my husband's employment

  • for these kids, and their simple enjoyment of fun times spent together

  • for a home with art
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
James 1:17
