We have a lot to be thankful for. God has blessed each and everyone of us with so much; a roof over or heads, family, a warm bed at night, children, a spouse, a church family, friends, food, the weather, our country, etc. You may not possess all of these, but I guarantee that you have things to be thankful for. No matter how down you may feel, you can always find the silver lining.

There is a little boy who I have been reading about on Facebook, his name is Tripp Halstead. On October 29th, a large tree branch fell on him and he has been in critical condition ever since. He is still hanging on and fighting for his life and so is his parents. They have been so encouraged by all the people on Facebook from around the world who are praying for him and encouraging this family. Even though their circumstances are not envied by anyone, they have so much to be thankful for this season; their son is still alive, the nurses and Dr.s are doing everything that they can, their new family all around the world never cease to encourage them and pray for them. It is inspiring to see a family, who could be so mad at God and so angry towards what is happening to their little boy, praise the Lord for the little miracles that occur in their sons life each and every day.

I hope that you are reminded today that you have so much to be thankful for. Hug your loved ones extra hard today and give thanks to the Lord for all that He has blessed you with.

I made this sign for my home in order to remind me that no matter what is happening in my life, big or small, I always have a reason to be thankful and I owe that thanks to God!
