I find it equally heartwarming and troubling when November arrives and Facebook explodes with daily posts of the things people are thankful for. After all, shouldn’t we be thankful, oh, all the time? Like, every moment of every day?! Still, there’s nothing wrong with taking some time to be purposefully, publicly thankful. And when Christmas candy has already hit the shelves, a mere four days after Halloween, I am happy to put up a jingle-bell barrier and focus on this month’s holiday – a festivity of friends, food, and fervent thanks.
30 Days of Thanks
Nov. 1: Sick days.
Nov. 2: My parents. So good to me.
Nov. 3: A roof over my head, food in the fridge, Internet on the computer, and basic cable on the TV.
Nov. 4: Finding this church — a haven, a quiet refuge of worship in a crazed world.
