Thankful

I’m not one that really gets into traditional traditions (if that makes any sense at all).

I’m one of those guys who thinks we should tell those we love, we love them – not just on Thanksgiving, but on every other day as well.  I’m that guy who thinks we should thank God for what we have, not just talk to Him about what we want.  I’m one of those who think we spend way too much on useless things for ourselves and for family and friends – that we should spend less and give more.  Give more to those people and organizations in need, people who don’t have as much as we do, people who could really benefit from our excess.

So today, I am grateful that millions of people will pause and consider what they have and what they really can be thankful for.

And tomorrow, I pray that some will reconsider how they spend money and just maybe consider giving to others!

Not All Days Are Sunny

Woke up to a rainy, grey day today.

I’m not gonna lie.  My favorite days are filled with sunshine.

Knowing there is a season for everything helps approach the grey days!  Knowing that without the rain, the grass wouldn’t be as beautiful in the sun.  Knowing the rain is not only refreshing but sustaining.

While I do love the sunny days, I’ll take today because I know it’s necessary.  Life is much like this as well.  Not every day is filled with sunshine.  God really does know what He is doing when He brings rain into our lives and I’m thankful that He knows better than me what I need!
