Thanksgiving Reflections

Today is the one day of the year that we set aside to give thanks.  The rest of the year, we have a tendency to focus so much on ourselves that we do not remember to be thankful to God and others.  Today, I would encourage you to spend some extended time with the Lord thanking and praising Him for what He has done in your life!  I would also encourage you to share with the people in your life what you are thankful for about them.  

When I was in high school, one of my teachers suggested making a list of 10 things you are thankful for every hour throughout the day.  That is a great way to remind ourselves that we are blessed.  So here is a small portion of what I am thankful for:

  • Life
  • Breath
  • Jesus Christ 
  • Family 
  • Friends
  • Health
  • My Gifts and Talents
  • Grace
  • Jesus’ Life, Death, and Resurrection
  • The Gospel
  • Church
  • People Who Have Invested in My Life
  • My Job
  • And Many More Things that I Do Not Have Time to List
So, what are you thankful for?
