Day4

Thankfulness…

I could write for days about Thankfulness…but I only have minutes tonight…

In the month of November, I saw numerous amounts of people writing what they were thankful for each day – 31 days of Thankfulness in November. But what about December? What about January?

Are you still thankful today? tomorrow?

I am…

…so very thankful!!

It's a heart issue, though.

We can say we are thankful, and most likely, we are…but when Thankfulness changes our attitude, when it changes our hearts, that's when true thankfulness has shown up!

Here's a book that I'm slowly working my way through. I don't want to miss a word of this fantastic book, so I'm really pouring myself into it as I read…

I've probably mentioned it before…One Thousand Gifts

check out Ann Voskamp's web site HERE! so inspiring!!

…and life-changing!! You start to look at little things that you wouldn't normally think of as blessings! That, my darling friends, is what changes the heart!!

Each year at Thanksgiving, we do something crafty to share what we are thankful for…

this year was no different. We did quilt blocks that I will be making into a quilt, hopefully finishing in January!! (I'm going to be a finishing fool in 2013!!!)

Here are some of the blocks…

Are you still thankful even though November has passed???

Tell me what little things or big things you are thankful for today!!

"Enter His gates with thanksgiving
And His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His name." Ps 100:4
