Time to Give Thanks

As we enter this Thanksgiving week, I’m a bit overwhelmed by the many reasons I have to give thanks: – a text from a friend, an unexpected invitation to lunch, an amazing sunrise, Sisters in community to share the amazing sunrise, warm clothing when so many go without, gas in the car and easy access to travel, a funeral celebration reminding me of the precious gift of life, a smile and joyful greeting of a coworker, a Christmas cactus in bloom….

Maybe I’ll make it a point to keep the list going all week. God is indeed good and all is gift from Him.  What’s topping your Gratitude List this week?

    Knowing I am right where I need to be, in my life,in my relationships, in my world. That we are all right where we need to be. Most of all that God is right there with us all the way. That it is a short reach for his hand.

      Isn’t it true that if we accepted that we are where we need to be, things would look very different than when we hope and long for something else? Many blessings to you!
