As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow, I hope so many of you are getting ready to spend time with friends and family. I also hope you will literally take some time to give thanks. So often we get busy and forget that gratitude makes a difference in all that we do.
Previously I have mentioned how Ann Voskamp has made such an impact on me. And for the last few years, I have counted the gifts. Again and again, I’ve grabbed my journal and counted the ways God has been faithful to my days – from portrait sunrises to dinner around the table. It’s become habit and something worth doing every day. Even when facing difficult circumstances or a broken heart, I have learned I can always, always find something to give thanks for each day.
Ann did a wonderful talk on what it means to change our days, our families and our communities by giving thanks. As we enter into the holiday of thankfulness, I hope you will enjoy watching her passion for this life-changing habit!
May we be known by our gratitude!
