Very hard to grasp that today is the first of November. This is a tough time of year for me...summer is gone and the long, cold winter approaches. UGH!
As I rolled over in bed groaning I felt a prick in my spirit to be thankful. Are you kidding me? I thought...thankful for ??????? And at once my mind flooded with all my amazing blessings.
I decided that I would take this month of Thanksgiving to be intentional in giving thanks. If you know me, I lean towards the negative, so this could be a tough assignment. I also am lazy and have great ideas that I don't follow through with....so let's see how this goes....
While lying in bed gazing out the window upon a gray, dreary, rainy day this song came to mind:
Oh Happy Day when Jesus washed my sins away.
How can I NOT be thankful?
