Sunshine and warmth.
What a day!
It’s easy to name the Thanks when the sunshine spills over and the warm breeze lulls your senses.
It’s in the hard and the uncomfortable that we forget to stop, and give thanks.
This is an Art.
Day after day.
Moment by moment.
Seeking the good.
Finding the joy.
All around us there are changes.
Nature has put on it’s best finale this year.
Displaying a majesty of colors and brilliance.
Breath taking views that leave one speechless.
Now, those brilliant leaves lie on the earth’s floor.
The starkness is striking.
Yet there is still much beauty and reason to be giving thanks.
(I am talking to myself)
If the world around you feels out of sorts and unstable, will you join with us in naming our thanks?
It really changes us.
Our hearts soften.
The Anxiety dissipates.
Our view of things change as we name our thanks.
30 Days of Thankfulness
I am thankful for:
Hot coffee and conversation around the farmhouse table
A few repairs done on the old barn
time for a drive with my farmer to pick up an order
a house full of young people giggling and laughing
a childhood friend who has a birthday today
the sunrise over the mountain
the rhythm of baking
coffee (did I mention that.)
quiet time with the Lord as he fills my empty cup
a new day, may God find me faithful
the fall colors and beauty in nature
