Thankful Thursday 1-14-2021

A New Day

Thankful Thursday takes us one day further into the year 2021. A new day dawning. Opportunities await. Which ones will you choose?

With all the changes life has thrown our way, new ideas and exciting connections have grown from the breeding ground of creativity. As you look around, you find these gems. Yes, they are new and different. They bring hope, excitement, and growth.


Our traditions and habits have been shaken in this past year. The challenge to our comfortable and “normal” way of living has given opportunity for new ideas to arise. These ventures and creative approaches seek to meet observed needs. When we choose try the efforts of those seeking to serve us, blessings begin. Both parties receive blessing through combined efforts to partake in the new.

Use one dawning new day to take on a new opportunity. As 2 Peter 3:18 says “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.” In 2021, take one step. Grow your knowledge by one piece of information. As you do so consistently, those baby steps you have taken will blaze a whole new trail and perspective in and on your life.

Blessings to you!
