thankful

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.

To everyone reading these words, and especially to my 650 – some WordPress friends, our family wishes yours “Happy Thanksgiving”. This especially goes out to those who enjoy dog hair, dog-breath, and the companionship of our canine pals. Particularly on days like this American holiday, we celebrate those negotiating around a kitchen – under the watchful eyes of a dog or two – to prepare a Thanksgiving meal. I hope however you all choose to spend the holiday season, you are reminded of the positive things over the past year. Stay healthy and safe!

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

Colossians 2:6 -7 (NIV)
