Thanksgiving, the word evokes memories, memories of family traditions, a time of joy, a time to slow down and appreciate all that we have been blessed with. Each day is a blessing, a gift and no matter what the circumstance, a new day is a special gift and marked with His grace and mercy. To truly appreciate and live life we need to take the time to be thankful. Thankfulness and counting our blessings have the added benefit of bringing joy, love and deep abiding peace to our lives.
O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever. – 1 Chronicles 16:34
