So, this is a day late, but we need to be thankful everyday, not just on Mondays, so I guess it’s not “late.”

What are some things you are thankful for? Here are a few of the things I am:

1) Chilly mornings
2) Cuddling on chilly mornings
3) Waking up a sleeping baby to eat
4) A very stuffed baby
5) Giggles from said baby trying to get his daddy’s attention
6) Bruises from carnival rides
7) Dreaming of Strawberry milk
8) A day of no errands
9) Lost Weight
10) Devotions early in the morning with my Lord

there is always something we can be thankful for, and on the days we don’t feel like being thankful, those are the days we need to strive even harder to be thankful. By grumbling, we are acting like the Israelites did after God brought them out of slavery and into freedom. They grumbled and complained about every little thing. Let us not be like them. Let us have a heart knowing God is caring for us and we have lots to be thankful for.
