1 Corinthians 1:4

The Message (MSG)

4-6 “Every time I think of you—and I think of you often!—I thank God for your lives…”

Fall officially started today!  Woo hoo…I think this is my favorite season.  I love the crisp air, the breeze, the changing leaves, and the holidays!  My favorite holiday, ever since I was little, has been Thanksgiving.  It was, and still is, the only holiday where both sides of my family gets together in one place.  We have always held Thanksgiving at my parent’s house and it is a time of food, family, and a lot of gratitude.

There is always SO much to be thankful for.  People to be thankful for, blessings to be thankful for, and a God full of love and grace to be thankful for.  Even in our most darkest hours, there is something we can always be thankful for, but how often do we really tell those that we are thankful for them, for something they did, or for simply who they are.  God has really been placing this on my heart lately.  I have SO much, and SO many, that I owe gratitude to and for.

I have decided to embark on a personal challenge…a 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge.  I got the idea from here.  It’s simple, your goal is to express gratitude to one person a day, anywhere in the world, for any reason,  for 30 consecutive days by sending a heartfelt card.  Who doesn’t like to get mail {real mail}.  I am going to be using SendOutCards.  The are many reasons I am using SendOutCards, but the main reason is  because I don’t have to leave the comfort of my own home to try and pick out a card with a squirmy 16 month old…and I am lazy ;)!  With the economy the way it is, you don’t even have to send a card if.  It could be a phone call, a hug, or a personal Thank You!  Just let someone know, everyday, that you are thankful for them.

I can’t wait to see God work through me in this challenge and I am excited to share my experiences with you.  I would also love to have you join me and see how God works through all of you.  October 1st is my official start date.  Start with me or chose your own start date, but be sure to comment and share your experiences!!
