I am finding myself in a place where I feel that I deeply and truly have so many things to be thankful for.
I’m thankful that we had a nice and long mild fall.
I’m thankful for my friends; for their willingness to drive to meet up, and for those who are very close by.
I’m thankful for my church and my small group, and for the friendship and encouragement I receive from them.
I’m thankful for my awesome family and for their consistency in my life.
I’m thankful for my roommate; for her positive spirit, grounded heart, and genuine friendship.
I’m thankful for my job; for the fun I have in the workplace, for the satisfaction of hard work and for the people I get to work with.
I’m thankful for my health; for the things I learn and apply about diet and exercise, and for the joy it brings in my life.
I’m thankful for America; for its beauty and vastness and for those who have served and are serving to protect its people.
I’m thankful for amazing grace and for the salvation I have received through Christ alone.
I’m thankful for Thanksgiving Day; a time where America stops to dwell on the good things in life. For a day to gather together and eat and enjoy the company of others.
