The very first scripture that I learned was Psalm 100:
If I close my eyes I can still see myself as a third grader holding my red hard bound RSV version of the Bible reading the psalm with the other children n my class.
To this day those words shape who I am.
And who I am is about giving thanks today.
Blessings to you!
At my house Thanksgiving and football go together. This morning my husband called me into the family room so I could watch this piece on Sports Center.
I could go on and on about this story and why it’s so special to me…but I invite you to hear it with your heart. Then pause and give thanks for what you have.
But before you rush from this into your celebrations, however big or small, check your attitude of gratitude. Take a look at what you think you “can’t” do. Then be sure you’re doing all you can. Here’s Jake Olsen’s story:
Blessings to you this day of Thank-full-ness.
I’m full of thanks for family, food, and football. I’m thankful that my daughters and grandchildren will be in my home today. I’m thankful that I am married to a man who loves to cook and is really, really good at it. And it goes without saying how happy I am to enjoy football with my family.
I’m blessed. I know it and I’m thank-full.
