Reflections: 30 Things I’m Thankful For


I have so many things to be thankful for.

Family. Friends. Safety. Freedom. Food. Faith.* The Bible says, “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (1 Thes. 5:18) I touched on this topic of thankfulness in this post. Because Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away for some of you (it sure doesn’t feel like it here – it’s cold and snowy), I wanted to share 30 things that I’m thankful for. 

Giving Thanks (Even When The Sky Is Falling)


Sometimes it can be hard to be thankful.

Amidst everything there is in life, giving thanks can be challenging. You or a loved one might be sick. A family member or friend may have gone down the wrong path. Maybe something didn’t turn out the way you wanted it to. Or you simply failed a science test.

It’s that time of year where the snow is starting to fall and people are getting ready for Thanksgiving celebrations. Maybe you’ve had yours already. Nonetheless, I thought it would be a great time to share my thoughts on thankfulness.
