Thankfulness Day One

Life is busy. It just is.

But this week, I'm determined to be purposeful in my thankfulness. 

It's how I want to live really, with a thankful heart.  So many other things creep in and push the thankfulness out. I'm glad for the reminder of a National Holiday to get me back on track.

Today I'm thankful for a giggly girl, who shows me that even in death, there is joy to be found and there is always hope for the future. He [Jesus] will make all things new.

What is filling your heart with thankfulness today?


  1. great post :)

    i am thankful for the laughs and naughty-ness of my almost 2 year old nephew.

    happy almost thanksgiving!

  2. well put! I need to start thinking like that.

  3. I try to live by the Veggie Tales quote "A thankful heart is a happy heart." I'm overwhelmed with gratitude for my family ~ husband, children, parents ~ all committed to Him ~ I.AM.BLESSED.

  4. What a beautiful idea. I have been writing my thankfulness on facebook and it's been SO good to focus on what I'm thankful for instead of the frustrations and struggles of day to day life. Sometimes it's hard and I think - what in the world do I have to be thankful for today? But then I realize - I have MUCH to be thankful for. There's a verse that says to be thankful in ALL things and it's something I am learning to do. Because when I am, I find the joy and peace I so desperately long for.


    She definitely knows how to put a smile on my face :)
