When I started blogging not so long ago, I saw people were listing the things for which they were thankful. A lot was said about Ann Voskamp's book 1000 Gifts. So I tracked it down, bought it and have read it. What a life changing book! Ann makes you realise how important thanksgiving is.
I did start listing my daily blessings for which I was thankful, but realised that some days the things for which I was grateful were the same, then I started not counting them, as I'd be repeating them, then I found I was trying to find something to list. The point is, it was becoming about the list.
Then in my quiet time I read from Billy Graham's Wisdom for each day, the following:
Make it a practice to thank God every day for the blessings you have. Thank Him also each day the He loves you. Worries flee before a spirit of gratitude.
I want to constantly throughout the day, thank God for every blessing I see. A constant chatting between me and my Saviour in my desire to connect with Him and acknowledge Him as the author of all that is good in my life. I want it to become a way of living for me. I have decided not to list these things here. For me, it had become about the list so I have taken the list away.
The reason for this page is to remind myself to be thankful, always, daily, no matter what the circumstance.
