It's November 1st. A fresh start to a new month! With that in mind, I'm going to be blogging for 30 days about thankfulness.
You can find a list of what I'm going to be blogging about each day here, or see directly below! While the list only goes to 25, I'll spend the last five days free writing about gratitude.
Taking time out of the day to be thankful is not only a healthy practice, but I'm finding it's also a necessary one. Choosing to change my thought process and focus on the good makes me more positive. It keeps me more hopeful, and these days, hope is such a beautiful thing.
So, day 1: What made you smile today?
Lots of things made me smile today! The weather was stunning. The breeze felt lovely walking to classes and walking into the church to go to work. I smiled today because I gave a presentation in my Spanish culture class, and it went well!
I started to help preparing for an awesome weekend at church with a fantastic group of fourth and fifth graders. Knowing that I'm going to watch these kids dive deep into His love and discover more of who they are in Him made me smile today!
I am grateful that the Father brings joy to us even in the simple, every day things. Throughout this next month, may Romans 15:13 become very real for you!
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
