Thanksgiving 2010

The Thanksgiving blog. Thanksgiving kinda snuck up on me this year, not so much that I didn't know what the day on the calendar said, but I wasn't feeling very thankful. I had put my focus on my situation and my own selfishness and "sufferings".  Being thankful is a choice. You have to choice to see the blessing right before your eyes. Not only do we have to see them but also choose to feel grateful. I must confess that I haven't been very good at it lately.
It took a bad experience to see what I have before me. I needed to see how bitterness was creeping into my heart and changing how I was dealing with everyday life. It's hard for me to admit it. But in a moment of humility, my perspective changed. Thank you Jesus for humbling me once again. Thank you for the conviction of the Holy Spirit. Thank you God the Father for sacrificing your only Son to take my place on the cross.
Just in the nick of time I see what I have to feel grateful for. Thank You Sweet Jesus!
Happy Thanksgiving.
