Thankful Thursday - October 27

In the spirit of a book that my dear friend Debbie sent me when I was going through a particularly difficult time, One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, I am starting my list of things that I am thankful for.

Today I am thankful for:
·         Dishes to wash on a cold fall morning when my hands are freezing.
·         A job to go to and people I love to work with.
·         My grandson’s smile.
·         The crisp fall breeze swirling the amber, scarlet, and purple leaves around my feet.
·         Laughter until it hurts.
·         A husband that will rub my back all night when I start tossing and turning. Even without being asked.
·         A drive-by hug from my kids.

With so much going on at any given moment of any given day, I sometimes forget to stop, drop, and roll.
   Stop listening to lies of the enemy of my soul. (Philippians 4:8)
   Drop the garbage that has accumulated in my life and mind. (2 Corinthians 10:5)
   Roll out the praise and thanksgiving. (Psalm 100:4)

So, today is a new day, with fresh mercies and opportunities to grow and learn. I’m thankful for today and all that it holds. For opportunities to find Him in his brilliant creation. 

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! — 2 Corinthians 5:17
