Thankful Thursday 2-20-2020
Thankful Thursday patiently waits for the weekend ahead while providing a landing ground from the days we have each made it through. In this sacred space of gratitude, the pausing of my mind from the continual go, go, go opens the door to memories of loved ones, times gone by, and milestone experiences marking the journey through life thus far. Stopping and reflecting launches momentum. To prepare for the good ahead, I look at the good so far.
This “quiet” place of gratitude still hums with activity from the refrigerator running, the heater kicking on, and the various electronics plugged in and ready to be used. Even vehicles engines break through the sought-after silence I tie to a sacred place. No matter where I go or what the noise level, I find God.
When I seek God, I feel close to Him. I reflect on the people God has placed in my life: family, friends, random strangers that I have a bright, short conversation with at a store and leaves me walking away smiling at the fun moment and exchange I got to have. Pondering places from the home where I was raised to the towns where I gained my education to the various worship venues both man made and natural gracing my faith journey leaves me humbled.
God grew me with the people, places, and experiences surrounding me. For it all, my gratitude overflows. And He is doing the same with you too.
Blessings to you!
