Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
This has got to be one of the best times of the year. I’m not talking about the food, the time off from school, or the shopping either. While all that can be engaging, the best part of this time of year is that many people begin to count their blessings.
Some of us realize how truly blessed we are.
Do you realize how blessed you are today? If not, you might be surprised. Here are a 3 places to look:
1. Look back. Where were you this time last year? What were you doing? Look at how you’ve made it this year, where you’ve been, how you’ve grown. You may not be where you want to be yet but you are definitely on the way.
2. Look around. We never want to glory in other peoples misfortunes. However when we look at our neighbors we can easily see how blessed we are. Most of us are surrounded with blessings other people would kill for. This can also be a way to notice one of the greatest blessings you can receive. Noticing the needs of others can give you a chance to serve. There’s no greater blessing than to BE a blessing to someone else.
3. Look up. The Bible says, “All good things come from the Lord.” The Bible also says, “I look up to the hills. Where does my help come from? It comes from the Lord, Maker of Heaven and Earth.” I guarantee God has been better to me and you than either of us deserve. That’s the mark of a great daddy.
I’m so thankful for all of you. Thank you RLC for such a great first year. With our one year anniversary coming up, I can’t wait to celebrate with you and see where we go from here.
Hope you all have a very safe and very Happy Thanksgiving.
