Make the voice of thanksgiving heard!


It's November first.
There's no time like the present to start a new habit,
 to renew your mind from old habits of murmuring and complaining, 
to retrain your mind to respond in gratitude and thanksgiving!
Why not begin now?
I've asked my church to join me in journaling at least three things they are thankful for every day.
I'm putting a challenge out on Facebook for everyone to join me in posting one thing they are thankful for every day in the month of November.
By Thanksgiving day you could have developed a new habit of gratitude!
You can have a mind and heart that is full of thanksgiving instead of dissatisfaction.
It's as easy as noticing and counting your blessings.
Won't you join me?
(You may want to read Ann Voskamp's life changing book, One Thousand Gifts, too!)

  5. November always brings a greater awareness of gratitude (or sometimes the lacking of in my life). I have so much to be thankful for, even during times of lack.

    1. Barbie, gratitude in the deep valley times isn't easy, but I know it's the will of God. Love you, and am still praying and believing with you.

  6. I love Ann Voskamp's book and have been counting blessings for several years. It is a lifestyle that should be embraced all year round. So blessed that you linked up with The Weekend Brew.

    1. Lisha, I started keeping my gratitude journal because of Ann's encouragement on her blog, before she wrote her book. It's been a life changing habit that I've been doing for five years now.
