What a Monday!

Welcome to my daily gratitude journal. Everyday I will share one thing for which I’m thankful in each of the areas of family, work, and well-being.

Every day, every moment, and every experience (even the “bad” ones) present opportunities for thankfulness. But to whom are we to express thankfulness? God, our Heavenly Father, must be the object of our thankfulness. All good things come from Him (Jas 1:17); and He works all things (once again, including the “bad” things) together for the good for those who love Him (Rom 8:28).

Today, I’m thankful to God for…

Family: The opportunity to spend time with our two daughters today while they were out of school for the holiday. We saw the My Little Pony movie and I actually liked it! Another joy was reading and discussing part of Solomon’s Prayer of Dedication (1 Kings 8:22-26) with them.

Work: Blessing me with the opportunity to contribute more and more each week at The Church of The Apostles.

Well-being: Being able to pick up our son with not as much pain. And this is coming off a weekend when I played pickup basketball (don’t tell my chiropractor).

These are the three things for which I’m thankful today.

I pray that my journal will inspire you to express thankfulness daily to God.
