Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
Finding the good, even in the small things, not only acknowledges that they exist, but that they are a gift. We live in a time when everything is taken for granted or is expected. And, when we don’t get what we think we should, we suffer depression, anxiety, or act out like a spoiled child not getting his/her way. Giving thanks in all things, for all things, is not just a good idea; it’s good for us – mind, body, and soul. So, give thanks with a grateful heart and reap the rewards that await you.
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

Today I am thankful for:
- The rain after a long, dry summer
- Woodsheds full of dry wood for the winter ahead
- A roof over my head, food on my table, and gas in my well-running car
- Sweet, thoughtful friends
- Being woke up with doggy kisses and kitty snuggles
- Praise and worship music
- My sister
What are you thankful for?
