Happy Thanksgiving! Every year as Thanksgiving approaches we spend some time taking part in a Gratitude Challenge. Sometimes we keep a Gratitude Journal, other years we create a Gratitude Jar, sometimes we do photo challenges, and other years we write stories or poems.
However, we do it, we are always focused on counting our blessings. We like to pause and hold them extra close and look a little deeper at them. We like to let the value they contain and the appreciation we feel sink deeply into our hearts so that the presence of our greatest treasures can sustain us all year long. We invite you to do the same.
I’m thankful for a God above who loves me as I am.
Who hears my prayers, calms my fears, and reminds me that I can.
I’m thankful for my Savior Jesus who changed and saved the world.
Who died for me and rose for us, and every single boy and girl.
I’m thankful for this world of mine with mountains, skies, and seas.
Full of people, full of hope, full of life, and all its beauty.
I’m thankful for my family and each face and heart that make it mine.
I’m thankful that I’m blessed each second and loved and treated kind.
I’m thankful that I’m warm and fed and blessed with this great home.
I’m thankful that no matter what, I never feel alone.
I’m thankful for the sun and moon, the stars, the rain, the snow.
I’m thankful for a life of moments to love, to learn, to grow.
I’m thankful for each breath I take, each beat my heart goes on.
I’m thankful for a world with music in both laughter and in song.
I could never tell it all, how grateful is my soul.
Blessings are truly countless when He’s with you as you go.
