Here's my themes flower picture for today!
This little flower (though some may call it a weed) represents what I'm thankful for this Thanksgiving.
I'm thankful for the little things.
I'm thankful for the things some people call insignificant or unimportant (like this little flower).
I'm thankful for everyday blessings.
Things like grading a perfect paper, getting dirty with my little brother and my dog, Sarah, feeling a strong, cool breeze, drinking a perfect cup of coffee out of a simple, pretty mug, taking a picture I'm awed at because of the way it captured God's beautiful creation, the little nuggets of knowledge God reveals to me in my Bible reading, my dad reading to us and replacing the character's names with our own, looking at a sink recently emptied of dirty dishes through working together with Mark, laughing at my little sister's silly antics, sitting quietly on the swing at church with Megan, each of us thinking our own thoughts, the simple pleasure of learning something new on the piano thanks to wonderful friends, and the list goes on and on.
Anyway, that's a few of the things I'm thankful for. And you know what else? I'm thankful that Thanksgiving does NOT only come once a year! It can be every day for the rest of your life.
"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
~1 Thessalonians 5:18~
