One morning last week, I was reading Colossians 3:12-17 in The Message, and was struck by the phrase, "Cultivate thankfulness". In God's perfect ways, Daniel and I actually had time to sit down and eat breakfast together that morning, and I read him those passages, taking a minute to talk about what it means to cultivate thankfulness. That same morning in my email, I had a link to a blog that was about the same theme, even to the extent of mentioning the same passage in Colossians and cultivating thankfulness! God is so awesome!
Well, I wanted to share this blog with you, because the writer has been sharing some great exercises to help us cultivate thankfulness. I hope that this week will be a time of thankfulness for you, whatever your circumstances are, and that we can all take time to remember what God has done for us in Christ.
Daniel and I are going to take a quick trip to East Tennessee today to see some friends, but I'll look forward to any comments you have when I get back.
