GIVING THANKS

IMG_6593

THANKS GIVING IS NOT A ONE TIME HOLIDAY FOR ME!

BEING THANKFUL IS A CRITICAL COMPONENT OF TRUE HEALTH !

IT IS A DAILY & CONSTANT HABIT THAT HELPS COMBAT DEPRESSION AND/OR

DISCOURAGEMENT WHEN PLANS DO NOT TURN AS EXPECTED OR HOPED.

SO MANY TIMES THOUGHTS OR “BAD” NEWS CAN BEGIN TO DISCOURAGE US

BUT HAVING A HABIT OF COUNTING BLESSINGS AND BEING THANKFUL FOR AS MANY THINGS AS POSSIBLE STOPS A NEGATIVE ATTITUDE FROM TAKING AWAY OUR PEACE.

THANKS GIVING IS SUCH A GREAT HABIT TO HAVE!

KEEP A THANKFUL LIST GOING IN YOUR HEAD & HEART AT ALL TIMES.

WRITE DOWN & PRACTICE TELLING YOURSELF & OTHERS WHAT YOU ARE THANKFUL FOR.

WHAT COULD BE NICER THAN BEING THANKED & NOTICED WHEN WE DO SOMETHING

THAT OTHERS APPRECIATE. GOD LOVES A GRATEFUL HEART & SO SHOULD WE.

LET’S GIVE THANKS CONTINUALLY TO GOD & OTHERS AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE.

THE LITTLE THINGS THAT OFTEN GO UN~NOTICED TURN OUT TO ACTUALLY BE

THE BIG THINGS IN LIFE:

*SMILES ( COLLECT & THANK OTHERS WHEN YOU RECEIVE A GENUINE SMILE!)

YOU WILL BE SURPRISED HOW MANY PEOPLE NEED A SMILE OR A THANK YOU
TO BRIGHTEN THEIR DAY ….INCLUDING YOU!

*SUNRISES & SUNSETS ~ NOTICE THEM & MAKE A POINT TO THANK GOD!

THEY ARE POSTCARDS FROM OUR CREATOR & WE SHOULD RESPOND TO ETERNAL MAIL!

*FLOWERS & TREES MADE FOR OUR ENJOYMENT

*A HOME GROWN APPLE OR HOME COOKED MEAL~ MANY PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE THAT BLESSING

*SHOES THAT FIT~ GROWING UP I REALLY APPRECIATED THE YEARLY NEW PAIR I GOT AT CHRISTMAS

*SOCKS WITHOUT HOLES OR SOCKS AT ALL! ( MUCH OF THE WORLD GOES BAREFOOT)

*A WARM BED ON A RAINY NIGHT WHEN FOR SOME REASON YOU CAN NOT SLEEP!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

THESE CAN ALL TURN INTO PRAYERS FOR OTHERS ~HELPING US TO REALIZE

HOW BLESSED WE REALLY ARE~

*PRAY FOR A WARM BED FOR ALL THE HOMELESS

*SOCKS & SHOES FOR THOSE WITH NONE

*AN APPLE OR SMILE FOR A HUNGRY OR LONELY PERSON

*EYESIGHT FOR THOSE WHO ARE BLIND OR AWARENESS FOR THOSE WHO

JUST DO NOT NOTICE

*FLOWERS ~ TREES

*SUNSETS & SUNRISES…THE MANY SIMPLE PLEASURES IN LIFE.
