Confession: I scowled at some elves yesterday. Elves! Ok. Actually they were people who were putting up the Christmas decorations at my office. Yesh.
I feel sorry for Thanksgiving. It gets overlooked. In my opinion we really should celebrate it more than any other holiday besides Easter. (And you guys know how much I love Easter.) It would probably be different if people celebrated Christ more at Christmas, but alas, I don’t think that’s why we love it. But that is another post that hopefully – for your sakes – I will never write.
Since I celebrate Easter for seven days, and the rest of the world celebrates Christmas for 2 months, I thought it would be nice to start celebrating Thanksgiving a week early. So, every day for the next seven days, I want to give God some praise and Thanksgiving some props.
I hope you will join me in celebrating early by posting with me, but if you don’t, that’s okay. Let’s try three each day. One each for the body (things that make life a bit easier), the heart (things that you love, love, love), and the soul (spiritual things).
Today, I am grateful…
…that I live in a country with drinkable tap water (I have Peru to thank for this lesson).
…for the girls in my accountability group (Kels, Robyn, Lil, Donna and Hope – you keep me sane and honest, and I love you dearly).
…that God chose me to be His child.
OK. Your turn. What are you celebrating this Thanksgiving?
Great idea (and one that we are following in church now too!)
I am thankful that there are treatments that help us when we are ailing and researchers that really care (who aren’t in it for the almighty dollar).
I am thankful that I have friends and family who are truly interested in my whole well-being, including my spritualality.
I am thankful that God still speaks to me and even more thankful for the clarity that He gives me to hear!
