Give Thanks

November 24th, 2016

give-thanksIt’s that day of the year when everyone is called to take time and give thanks for all that God has blessed them with. We remember all that we are thankful for and really thank God for all that He has given us.

Some may say, but shouldn’t we do that every day? And the answer is YES — but isn’t it nice to have a day set aside especially for that?

I’ve recently started a journal beginning on my 20th birthday. Even if it doesn’t happen everyday, journeling is another way to reflect on the day that you have been given and what you are thankful for.

I would encourage you — make a list of things you are thankful for. I choose 20 items because I am 20, but you can feel free to go on however many you would like! It is a great time of reflection, thinking over how much you have been blessed this past year!

And as your spending time today, whether with family or friends, listen to this song sung by Josh Groban.

 

I know one thing — I’m so thankful for readers like you!

Happy Thanksgiving!
