I’ve been trying to decide what to write about today, the Gratituesday before Thanksgiving. It seems like I should write about something deep and tear-jerking…Thursday is Thanksgiving after all. I can’t possibly just write about how I’m thankful for warm socks or fingernail clippers…it’s the Gratituesday before Thanksgiving…I need to write about something BIG, right?
But if I write about how I’m thankful for Jesus and His sacrifice for me, it may just sound like I wrote that because I had to, even though I would absolutely write it from my heart. And how could I not write about how I’m thankful for my incredible husband? Of course, I’d need to go on and on about how my boys give me so much joy and how I’m so glad God gave them to me.
But then there’s my nice, big house. And the wonderful family and friends that bless me continually. And we always have plenty of food and we have quilts and a fireplace and furniture and books and wow…have you seen my new purse?
And what about my church family? What would I do without my church family? I’d hate to leave them out…this Gratituesday before Thanksgiving. It would be tough, though, to do without our reliable mini-van and all the hand-me-downs our family receives to clothe our boys. But do you know how many Bibles we have in our house? And how lovely it is that even though our bedroom is torn up right now and undergoing renovations, we still have a comfortable bed in another room to sleep in?
What about all the trials I’ve been through? They’ve helped shape who I am. How can I not truly thank God for lovingly walking me through the fires?
And then there’s you…my readers. I would really want to let you all know what you mean to me…this Gratituesday before Thanksgiving.
So I just don’t know what to write about. As soon as I figure out what I’m most thankful for…I’ll be sure to let you know.
