From Where I Sit: Giving Thanks

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. ~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

November is known to bring out extra expressions of gratitude, but we really are to be giving thanks at all times.

So I’m sitting here in my home, working out my thankful muscles by counting TEN blessings I can see right now…

1. Baby toys spread out on the floor.

2. Sunshine peeking through the blinds.


3. My Cheerio-eating, Cheerio-dropping littlest.

4. Overflowing blanket basket.

5. The fireplace.


6. A new Bible story book the boys and I read and laughed over last night.

7. Elephant stuffed animals {Did you know elephants are my favorite?!}.

8. Big brothers quietly eating breakfast.


9. Train Like a Mother.



10. My first fall mantle.

Your turn! Give thanks for ten things you can see RIGHT NOW! Go!
