(Anyone besides me feel like time is speeding up?)
In truth, this whole year has been a Thanksgiving of sorts for me. Not that I've eaten roast turkey and stuffing with any regularity - although I have fallen asleep in the recliner watching football a couple times - but that I've tried to continually notice and give thanks for the good things in life. In life in general and in my life, both big and small. Perhaps you noticed I've ended many of my blog posts this year with a line of thankfulness. I'm finding gratitude a powerful thing.
So here's a quote I've been chewing on of late - one that you might want to chew on as you celebrate Thanksgiving at your table. It's by Francis Frangipane:
"When God give us less than we desire, it is not because He is teaching us poverty but He is teaching us thankfulness. You see life, real life, is not based on what we amass but on what we enjoy.
At the core of our lives God seeks gratitude."
I highly recommend adding that thought to your mulling spices this month. Read Luke 12:15 as you do.
Thankful that when my thoughts grow confused, or my priorities become skewed,
God's Word always points me to what is real.
