Because of Bernadette …(her blog is) Haddon’s Musings I have decided to participate in her weekly ‘thankfulness Monday’ posts. I agree with her that perhaps if we can concentrate on things we have to be thankful for, with a goal to really appreciate all that we do have, we can offset some of the negativity that is so prevalent these days. One only has to listen to the news to know that there is much of it around us.
Today I’m thankful for the fact that each day is new. We have a new beginning to forge ahead and start afresh. Perhaps to give a different perspective to issues in our life. Perhaps to realize that nothing is impossible; nothing is without hope.
For every challenge that we face there is a solution, though we sometimes fail to see it immediately. There are times we doubt that anything can change, but with a new day, there is always a new outlook possible
As a Christian, I turn to my faith and to God. The scriptures are full of encouragement, and while I don’t know a lot of verses, there are some that are indelibly imprinted in my mind. One of my favourites is ‘ Philippians 4 vs 13… “Come unto me all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest”.
Anyway, today I am thankful that tomorrow is a brand new day, and all things become possible!
