let me say...it was overwhelming! do you want to see the heart of love, sacrifice, beauty, all poured out on a page? this is it. her words and heart will take your breath away. because through all of the traumatic stuff that was/still is happening in her life, her blog is titled Thankful Every Day. she purposefully looked for something to give thanks to the Lord for. every. day.
about the same time, a dear friend gave me a copy of this book:
which is totally amazing and challenges us to thank God for 1000 things. for real. on paper.
could i make a list of 1000 things to be thankful for?
i would say with every fiber of my being that i am thankful to God for everything.
but what kind of changes would happen in your life if you practiced thankfulness out loud, on paper, deliberately? even when your spouse's body is deteriorating? when your love is leaving this world?
i read this post that challenged me to do this.
practice thankfulness every day in October. deliberately.
will you join me?
today i am thankful for my husband! today is his birthday(30!!) and i could make a looong list of all of the ways he blesses me, but the goal of this thankful every day challenge is to be simple about it. so there you go!
