In Everything, Give Thanks

"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." --Phil. 4:4-7

Whether or not you are a Christian, focusing on the good and being thankful is a good idea. This week, will you join me in thinking of a few things each day for which you are grateful?

Feel free to add them in the comments below, or not. I'd love to read them, but I understand if you'd rather not share.

My list for today (and I plan to do this all week):

1) A walk in the woods with a friend. This picture is from a couple of weeks ago, and the memories make me smile.

2) Sundays. A change of pace, family time, and an opportunity for a nap.

3) Central heating. It's been a bit cold in the mornings lately, and I am just so happy we have heat that we don't have to shovel or light or tend.

Anyone else?


  1. I am thankful for my warm home, my health, my job and my family. What a nice idea!

  2. I love this post.
    I am thankful for successful brain surgery, my home, my family.

  3. I'm thankful for life and good health, a husband who loves me, and for hot showers.

  4. I am thankful to live in a house with a yard, healthy children, and a church family that knows how to show the love of Jesus to each other.

  5. I am thankful for my comfy bed and beautiful warm days with chilly mornings.

  6. A long weekend getaway with my wife reminds me how precious she is, how incomplete I am without her and how much I love her.

  7. I'm thankful for my family - for each one who God has made so perfectly in His own weird and wonderful way!
