Before You Have Your Turkey…

There is always, always, ALWAYS something to be thankful for!”

Can you believe it’s that time of the year again?

It feels like just yesterday we were welcoming 2016, and now, we’re getting ready for turkey, trimmings, and all the good tidings that come with the Holiday season.

But before you get ready to gather around the table today, why not spend a few moments reflecting on all God has done for you this year?

1 Thessalonians 5:18 reminds us to “be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”

So while the year may not have gone exactly how you expected, I’m sure you still have many reasons to give thanks.

Like having a warm place to lay your head at night.

Being alive and healthy.

And having family and friends to fill your heart with love and cheer.

At times we take these “little” things for granted; we forget someone would gladly trade their problems for ours.

Whatever our circumstances may be, let’s resolve to step into this season with a heart of gratitude.

Let’s focus on what we have, and not on what (or who) is missing.

Starting today. And every day.

Wishing you a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving!
