Day 30

To whom am I thankful?

Not my lucky stars, because I don’t think stars are lucky to begin with.

My thanks goes to the one who made those beautiful stars.

What Christ gave me was the greatest gift ever.

I am so unworthy of this gift and His love, but I am so grateful for it. And it is to Him that all my gratitude goes.

I am thankful to him for all the things I have listed in the past month. He gave me friends, family, joy, sunshine and the ability and reason to be thankful. 

Because of Jesus, I CAN give thanks in everything.

 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalm 34:1

I hope you have enjoyed this month of blog posts.

I encourage you to try it yourself.

Everyday for the next month find something new to be thankful for. Being thankful is not just for one day in November.

Thanksgiving Day is just a day set aside to remind us.

 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28

Day 22

So after being grateful for work I am also grateful for vacations.

When I am working hard and I think of an upcoming vacation I almost get twice as much energy to get my work done and after a vacation (Even if it is a short one) I am ready to tackle work again.

And therefore I am also thankful for Sundays,

Sometimes when my week seems to be dragging on and by Saturday I want to quit work for good, just by taking my Sunday completely off then by Monday I am ready for another week of work.

I am very thankful for vacations how about you?

 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.  Genesis 2:2
