And Be Ye Thankful

Our Family

Our family has a tradition of sharing our ‘Thankfuls.’
Every month we get together for birthdays and anniversaries, food, fun, and just being together.
Before the presents and birthday cake,
everyone says three things for which they are thankful.
We call them ‘Thankfuls’
Our ‘thankfuls’ are not profound, rain, candles, a pillow, that it is bedtime, my garden is growing, after a long RV trip I was thankful for TP you couldn’t see through and wouldn’t melt in your hands (maybe TP is profound).
We try to stick to one rule, you can’t repeat what someone else has said.

from Simple Abundance ~~Sarah Ban Breathnach

. . .These are the six threads of abundant living which, when woven together, produce a tapestry of contentment that wraps us in inner peace, well-being, happiness, and a sense of security. First there is gratitude. When we do a mental and spiritual inventory of all that we have, we realize that we are very rich indeed. Gratitude gives way to simplicity –the desire to clear out, pare down, and realize the essentials of what we need to live truly well. Simplicity brings with it order, both internally and externally. A sense of order in our life brings us harmony. Harmony provides us with the inner peace we need to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us each day, and beauty opens us to joy.

Colossians 3:15
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts,
to the which also ye are called in one body;
and be ye thankful.

Colossians 3:15
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts,
to the which also ye are called in one body;
and be ye thankful.

Let me teach you thanksgiving.
Begin by acknowledging that everything–
all your possessions and all that you are–belongs to Me.
The dawning of each new day is a gift from Me,
not to be taken for granted.
The earth is vibrantly alive with My blessings,
giving vivid testimony to my Presence.
If you slow down your pace of life,
you can find Me anywhere.

. . . .

The secret of being thankful is
learning to see everything from My prespective.
My world is your classroom.
My word is a lamp to your feet and a light for your path.
