We hope you’ve had a great weekend, drinking up the last drops of fall color, soaking up the sunshine, and enjoying the unseasonably warm weather before the frosty, refreshing tide of winter comes rolling in. Despite what the weather of this past weekend might have convinced you, it is already November! Yes, we’ve enjoyed the entirety of the essence of the bridging month of September and the delightfully vibrant, crisp month of October, and now it’s time for November. What qualities are defined by this month? Well, let’s think about something besides the weather for a moment. What good is there in confining our “thanks giving” to one day out of an entire month, when we have so many incredible blessings to be grateful for at all times? In honor of that proposition, let’s make November a month of gratitude. Of course, we should always ponder the bountiful bouquet of blessings bestowed upon our bodies and souls, but if one must take a month to, especially ponder upon what we have to be thankful for, let it be November. So, for our first post of the month, here are just a few of our reflections as we head into the season of gratitude:
Lastly, (at least for this post; there is no limit to our thankfulness outside of the tight and impersonal confines of cyberspace), we are grateful for gratefulness! In other words, we are grateful that not everything in the world feels grim and unpromising. Blessings are everywhere for everyone if we just take the time to notice. We encourage you this month, and always, to just pause, take a deep breath, glance around you, think of the positive, wonderful things in your lives, and take a moment to acknowledge how blessed you really are as the craftsmanship of an all-powerful Creator.
Thank you for being grateful with us as we celebrate the time leading up to the Thanksgiving/Christmas season.
