It's November, and this month I'm going to make a conscious effort to write my thanks every day. I often think of things I am grateful for and thank the Lord for them throughout the day. This is good. But when I actually pause to write those things down, they become a testimony of the Lord's grace in my life--a gift that keeps on giving every time I read and remember.
I am not committing to making a list of a certain number of things each day. Some days I may only write one thing I'm thankful for, other days I may write several. Perhaps sometimes list the same thing twice (I daily thank the Lord for my wonderful husband and daughter!). There are no rules to this--except that every day for the next 30 days I will GIVE THANKS. Would you care to join me?
470. I'm thankful that my hubby and I are a team. Not just roommates, or living in the same house with our own little worlds--but actual partners. We become what our spouse needs most--whether it's someone to laugh with, a shoulder to cry on, a nurse, a playmate, a steady hand, or a companion.We work together toward the same goals, even when that means setting personal desires aside (or at least postponing them a bit). The sacrifices aren't one sided, and because we work together so well they rarely even feel like sacrifices.
