It shouldn’t be like this.
My soul; so forgetful.
Soul Amnesia I’d call it.
30 Days of Thankfulness.
Or so I thought.
To remember gratitude.
In the places of our soul.
Here it is another year and I have found myself with soul amnesia.
Forgetting to name the good and working to see the finger prints of God.
I almost missed this the other day.
Thankful for the dancer girl whose excitement caused me to shift.
I was busy.
Caught up in the doing.
I needed a reminder.
Help in overcoming my soul amnesia.
I stepped outside to marvel at the beauty.
I breathed in the crisp, fall scent.
Can you pause too?
Are you weary from soul amnesia too these days?
Will you join me for the next 30 days?
Healing our soul amnesia.
Remembering the goodness of God.
Naming them one by one until our souls are at rest; our go to is prayer,
and our hearts settle into the peace that only Christ can give.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Won’t you join us?
30 Days of Thankfulness
I am thankful for:
Rainbows that interrupt the day
Children that notice the beauty around us
Moments to slow down
Coffee, always coffee
A house full of youth
Crisp Autumn evenings
the smell of wood burning, providing much needed heat
this hard season, may we all grow stronger and learn to live better in community
early evening time to step into the quiet
darker mornings to slow down
an opportunity to get rid of my soul amnesia and rest in the goodness of God
