I know there are a lot of blogs out there that do this, Ann Vokstamp and her wonderful book 1000 Gifts has had a profound effect on getting people to be more thankful, and seeing the value in speaking out the things God has done for you. But really, there is something here, something to be said for acknowledging the things you are thankful for on a regular basis. Even when there is seemingly little to be thankful for.
Today, it is with great pleasure that I introduce to you the first of many Thankful Thursdays here at Bring Love In. Because there should always be at least one thing we can acknowledge that He has done for us today.
Today I am thankful that we are coming through a season in our lives, not that it has been a bad one, or that I am happy to see it go. But I am happy for seasons in general, I am thankful that God loves us, and teaches us in seasons, and brings us through to new seasons when the time is right. This next season, the one where we are back in Ethiopia and putting our all towards getting forever families set up is a really good one. I am looking forward to this!
Today I am thankful for the summer camp in Chico that I was able to go help at with my son last week. God moved in the lives of the kids there and I am thankful to have been a part of it.
I am thankful for the Morrell Family Charities, and the matching funds donation that they approved us for. Its an honor to work with them, and that they see our project as worthy of supporting.
Now its your turn, what one thing are you thankful for today?
