Happy Monday!

Not only is it November, but it is the beginning of the second week of November!  I’m a little late but maybe we can do TWO acts of gratitude daily or at least until caught up.

Seriously though, can we be do too many acts of gratitude??

When I think of how grateful I am that Jesus has saved me so many times, I should be doing nothing but!

I pray that you and I, do these things all year long, do them until they are firmly planted within our hearts, souls and minds.  I will start it off first.  I am So grateful for each of you!  The support, encouragement and love you have shown me is amazing!  Thank you.

(6) So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, (7) rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

Colossians 2:6-7

Pray Unceasingly!!



30 Days of Gratitude Challenge – Becky, So Very Blessed

Take the 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge with small, simple daily tasks to grow a more grateful heart of thankfulness and joy.

Gratitude Meaning

There are all kinds of different definitions out there for this simple concept, but essentially gratitude is a feeling of thankfulness.

It’s not an obligatory, “thank you” when you get an ugly sweater from Aunt Margaret.

It’s a heart that is genuinely grateful for the tangible and intangible gifts in your life.

It’s a recognition and a deep appreciation of the things around you, from the seemingly insignificant things to the overtly wonderful blessings.

I have put together a list of 30 small tasks to help you develop a heart of thankfulness this month.

There are a mixture of all kinds of types of activities to meet you on every level – acts of service, activities, and even just intentional thoughts.

Do them in order or just pick one activity a day and do them in whatever order you’d like, crossing them off as you go.
