I had a dear friend remind me recently just how much we have to be thankful for. She put it plain and simple, and it really hit home for me. She said “I am just grateful to God for waking me up each day.” I don’t know about you, but my first thoughts when I wake up in the morning go something like this… “Oh no, it is morning already, ugh…” What would happen if I changed that thought pattern to this? “Thank you God for waking me up today, and for giving me life.” I’m sure spilled Cheerieos would make me much less grumpy if I started my day out with those words.
I truly do have so much to be thankful for. I am MOST grateful for my Creator, who has given me everything by sending His Son Jesus to die, so that I might live. Oh, to keep that thought in the forefront of my mind everyday! No matter what happens here on this earth, because of Jesus, we have Hope for all of eternity!
