Thanksgiving: Day One and Two

I saw this quote from Harry Ironside recently about Thanksgiving:

“We would worry less if we praised more. Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction.” ~Harry Ironside

We have much to be thankful for if we simple stop and consider how blessed we truly are!
Unfortunately, in this day and age we are trained to be less content and less thankful than any other generation. This is especially true with the constant releases of new technology that we just have to have or else our lives will be terrible or something. I'm sure you can think of many other issues, items, situations, etc where maybe you or someone else isn't very thankful for what they have or been blessed with....let's strive to be different! 

Let's be people where thankfulness is natural response no matter the circumstance.
This is tough sometimes but not impossible - especially as we are not alone in the day-to-day battles. We have God's Spirit, His Word, and other believers to help prop us up, strengthen us, and remind us of how we should be living!  

Every November I try to share in one form or another what I'm thankful for. I'm going to strive to do that here on my blog for the entire month.

Meant to start posting yesterday but wasn't able to post.

Let me encourage and challenge you to take the time to do the same either here or through e-Mail, Social Media, or tell someone what you're thankful for! Do this the remainder of the month!

So here are the things I'm thankful for from yesterday and today:

Day One: I'm thankful for my family and friends.

Day Two: I'm thankful to have employment especially during these tough economic times.

What are you thankful for?

Please go share with others - as you have much to be thankful for!
