Those of you on Facebook have probably seen the trend of the past few years that involves stating one thing you are thankful for each day in November. I have never participated, but this year I felt drawn to the idea of deliberately looking for something to be thankful for each day. However, I have decided to post my daily “thanksgiving” on my blog, so I can be more verbose than a Facebook status post usually allows.
Today I am thankful for the beauty of nature. I was especially struck by the vibrant reds, golds, and oranges of autumn as I drove to work this morning. I took a moment to thank God for the beauty He places all around us, the beauty I get to enjoy in the midst of the monotonous, routine drive I make every day. The wind had the leaves on the trees practically dancing and clapping, as if in praise to their Creator, and I thought of the day when we will all bow before Him and worship. What a day that will be.
What are you thankful for?
