(The word-nerd in me loved this picture with the letter tiles. It is the small stuff that makes me happy :)
This year (and last) have been difficult for many. For that reason, we've had to find the joy when and where we can. I firmly believe that joy is a choice. (And that is coming from a person who has struggled with major depression and anxiety for years).
It can be difficult to choose joy when things are falling to pieces all around you. If that is you this year, give yourself some grace. If that isn't you this year, give someone else some grace. It just may be that they are having a difficult time and need you to lighten their load.
There is so much to be thankful for (so much Good Stuff). Sometimes, we just have to look a little harder.
I'm going to leave you with some Bible Verses about giving thanks.
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. ~ I Thessalonians 5:18
O give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love endures forever. ~ Psalm 107:1
Do no be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God. ~ Philippians 4:6
Enter His gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His name! ~ Psalm 100:4
I will praise the name of God with song. I will magnify His name with thanksgiving. ~ Psalm 69:30
I pray you have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving Day full of food, family and praise.
Don't forget to choose joy :)
