Daily Thanksgiving

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 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?
