Gratitude Day 327

Fri., Sept. 20, 2019

Philippians 4:4: Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

It was right there in front of me. I just needed to read it.

“Give Thanks.”

Late last night, I pulled out a few fall decorations. Company is arriving today. Maybe I should make the house look a hare bit more like fall?

Nothing like waiting until the last minute.

As Hubby Rick snoozed in the TV room, I quietly moved a few things around. Pulled out the pumpkins. Switched out a few flowers. Drank in the scent from the pumpkin candle. And called it “good enough.”

This morning, I walked through the dining room. Fog hung outside, heavy and dense. Light was barely breaking through to begin the day. Crisp air wafted through the front parlor, coming through an open window. I sat on the couch in this room, which seldom has visitor. With a cup of coffee in hand, slowed down and saw the words.

“Give Thanks.”

The list would be long and cumbersome and laborious if I accounted for everything I am thankful for. It would begin and end with blessings I have beyond my imagination.

And so, let’s just leave it at, “Give Thanks.”

What are you thankful for today?

For the ability to give thanks and rejoice today, I am grateful. 

Almighty God – May I rejoice and be thankful for all the blessings I have in my life today. “Give Thanks” seems too shallow. Maybe not enough. Thankfully, Your heart knows all that is in my heart.  Amen.

Blessings –
