it's all over the place.
and to be honest, i haven't been feeling as thankful as i should.
i've been rolling my eyes.
or thinking about what i am not thankful for.
but then i read a quote saying how it is so important to focus on what you ARE thankful for, and stop focusing on what you aren't, then those things will slowly fade. (OBVIOUS, i know. but sometimes you just need a reminder!)
so i've been trying to recenter.
i want to FULLY enjoy these days with my child,
evenings spent at home with my husband,
the holidays spent with family.
i want to be able to recite one of my FAVORITE verses with joy in my heart.
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever.
His faithfulness continues through all generations.
so here are a few things from this month that i am choosing to focus on to help cultivate a thankful heart!
