“In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18

What an incredible verse. What a challenge! To give thanks in everything. I was reminded of how much I have to be thankful for today when I got an email from my cousin. He is a Marine and is currently stationed in Afghanistan. I was immediately thankful and relieved to know he and his fiance are both okay upon reading his update.

I’ll admit that some days (weeks, even) I get caught up in the trouble and the stress of life and I forget to be grateful. Like that wonderful Bing Crosby song in White Christmas “Count Your Blessings” I could stand to count mine a lot more often. The list in my head, when I stop to think, is very long.

What are you thankful for today?
