Always Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving! Lately I've been reading blog posts and articles about being thankful, and some friends have even been writing down something they're thankful for each day of November. I think this is a wonderful idea---but it got me thinking...Wouldn't it be great if I took the time to do that each day of the year? My list of blessings is endless---the Lord has blessed me so much, and I'll be the first to admit I've done nothing to deserve these blessings. But that's how much my Lord loves me! So I could easily think of something every day to be thankful for. And even though the Thanksgiving season is a wonderful, special time of year, how nice it would be to practice being thankful ALL year, in every season. ~ May I be always thankful, no matter the time of year or how I'm feeling on a particular day. Because even if it's a day when I'm feeling lots of physical pain, then counting my blessings and having a thankful heart is bound to make me feel better! But most importantly, it would please the Lord. ~ ~ My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord: and let all flesh bless His holy name for ever and ever.
