“If you made a list of all the things you could be thankful for, the list would undoubtedly be longer than your misfortunes.”
It’s another Thanksgiving, and before we jump into the Christmas crazy, I wanted to be intentional in being grateful for the things in my life. I’m so thankful for the opportunities I have to share my words and thoughts with you, and am thankful you are here to read them.
So I’m giving thanks for you and this little corner of the internet where we are here together.
Below I’ve listed some of my favorite Thanksgiving Bible verses, and with each a prayer. Shooting up a quick prayer of thanks will keep us in an attitude of gratitude.
I pray each of you have a fabulous turkey day! (Or, if you’re like my family, a fabulous tofu day! 😉 )
