As we approach the holidays, I want to be sure to do so with a thankful heart. As a rule of self, I always try to make this a way of life. But, at this particular time of the year, I want to be even more conscious of my blessings. I want to go deeper in my gratitude, taking time to appreciate both the big and small blessings. Often, we take for granted or overlook the small, daily blessings. Yet, these are things that sustain us.
Each day in November, I will be taking time to be fully conscious of all of my blessings. I believe that a thankful heart is home to a joyful spirit. I will share this journey here. I think it will provide discipline and hold me accountable to my intention of gratitude.
Today, I will start by giving thanks for my relationship with God. No matter what happens to me, I trust that He knows and understands. He sees the big picture, while I only see my place in it. I am grateful that He has given me this grace of faith. It is my faith that has saved me many times.
