The gift of gratitude

Nothing in my own opinions would suggest that one should move house near the holidays.

The very idea seems rather like a bad joke.

However, life often has taught me my greatest lessons through things which seemed ridiculous.

God has truly used this time to show me just how much we are blessed.

It’s been like Christmas morning every time I unpack something!

Although, there’s still a lot to do and we probably won’t be settled for a while yet, it’s been an amazing season.

This Christmas God gave me a fresh perspective on all He has already given into our care.

I am humbled and deeply grateful.

Truly, gifts from God are treasure indeed.

Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.
Psalms 100:1‭-‬5 NKJV

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You so much for Your Word. Thank You for doing what You have in our lives. Lord, thank You for the many, many blessings. I truly can’t count them all. Lord, please continue to teach me how to have a grateful heart. Lord, I want to walk in Your will and rest in Your truth each and every day. Thank You for teaching me to let go of the things I used to think important. Thank You for teaching me I can be a good hostess no matter what. Lord, please continue to hone my heart and to value those things which You value. Lord, please continue to guide me in living with thankfulness daily. I love You, Jesus! Amen.
