Day 1 friends, let’s be thankful. I know I so often sit in my weariness and forget to be thankful. I have lots to be thankful but there always seems to be a “but.” I found that today as well. I woke up feeling quite optimistic. That’s pretty uncalled for for me. In my optimism though, I was worried. Worried it would be taken away from me because I don’t know how to hold onto it. I allow others to suck it from me because I always have been like that. I am praying that during this journey, I will be able to find a way to allow that NOT to happen. Anyway, the reflection questions are best to answer in the evening so I will do that in my journal tonight. Have a super duper day friends! It a mild day temperature wise here but the snow is blowing and the roads are horrible and icy. A great day to stay in and be thankful I have a nice warm house to protect me from the elements of the weather. TTFN
Good morning everyone. Today is a brand new day!! How about we rejoice, and actually be glad about it! Today is the day to simply ‘be thankful.’ No better way to start this 40 day journey than being thankful and living in response to all that He has given us.
As you go through day one, respond with ‘thank you’ to all the things you are thankful for, or for the things God brings to your attention. Here is an example: Do you love coffee, in your mind say ‘thank you’ to Jesus as you sip away. Open your eyes to all the things around you that you are thankful for. At the end of the day, look back and add up all the new things you recognized today. You will be surprised.
Enjoy the bible verse below, and enjoy the Journey you experience today!
