Stuffed with Joy

It’s that week, the week we cook more food that we can possibly consume in one sitting, and then fall over in a stupor and become one with the couch. One year I decided to forgo the Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving and we put homemade leaves on the tree. Each leaf had something written that that person was thankful for. I am unsure if the practice of naming what we are grateful for actually changes us or not, but I do know it shifts our focus to what we do have, not what we don’t. So, what are some things you are truly thankful for this season? We truly are a blessed people!

“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise:
Give thanks unto him, and bless his name.”
-Psalm 100:4
