A Reason To Be Thankfyul

Today was one of those days that you are just glad is over. Since I began my journey to list all of the gifts in my life... the 1,000 gifts, I decided to never grumble. Today I grumbled. I grumbled a bit last night too. I messed up, and I grumbled.

I had to reflect back today and read my list of gifts over... even add a few new ones to the list. I had to step back away from the noise of my life and just thank God for the moment, even this hectic, crazy moment in my life that I am in right now. I am thankful today. Thankful that even when the world screams around me frantically, He stills my heart and quiets my soul.

There is always a reason to be thankful... Always a reason to Thank God. ALWAYS!

Today I am thankful for the safe haven I get to call home, for my comfy chair that I sit in as I write this right now, for my beautiful children that await me every day and for this very moment in time that gives me a reason to be thankful.

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful"
Colossians 3:5

"The greatest saint in the world is not he who prays most or fasts most; it is not he who gives alms, or is most eminent for temperance, chastity or justice. It is he who is most thankful to God."
William Law

A very down-to-earth confession. It takes courage to admit that sometimes we stumble ... but then get up again. Glad to be here, Angelina.

Such truth. I'll start counting complaints before I remember that doesn't help. Counting gratitude sure does. Great quote from William Law.

Amen! So so so true! When my nerve pain gets really bad... I just think about the things that I'm thankful for.. I am so overwhelmed in the love of God that He is here with us! There is no reason to complain.. He is enough for us... so many times we stumble but He is bigger then that. Thank you for this reminder!
