You’re Not Good Enough…Be Thankful

I don’t know about you, but sometimes it is really hard to live a life of thankfulness. I’m pretty good at showing gratitude for a one-time gift. But being thankful constantly, in all things?

Thankful for a Future Season

  I love fall. The colors, the temperature (which fluctuates a lot in Georgia), the football, the food, the shopping… it’s by far my favorite time of year. But I also know that soon I will be ready for winter. We just got into November and I am already itching to turn on my Christmas more »

Many people are participating in “30 days of thankfulness” on Facebook and Instagram, sharing their gratitude over the things that are near and dear to their hearts. It’s kind of refreshing to me…scrolling down my newsfeed to see thankfulness in the place more »
