Thanksgiving Thoughts

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.

We have been very thankful this week for friends, both here and away. Spending Thanksgiving with a friend was different but so welcome, plus we got good together time on the road to and fro. God sends friends into our lives just as He sends us into the families He chooses for us, and for that we've been so thankful.
