A Challenge

In our economy today (I'm thinking especially US with the upcoming election, but I know a lot of places are having a hard go of it) it is so easy to fall into the pattern of complaining and worrying instead of focusing on all the wonderful things that we do have.

During the week of Thanksgiving, I'm going to post five things a day that I'm grateful for. I think that it is so important for us to remember all that God has blessed us with.

So, I'm issuing a challenge: Will you all join me? If you don't feel like you can commit to five things a day, try at least to do one. I have a feeling that once we start counting our blessings things will come to mind that we hadn't thought of as a blessing before.

You can accept this challenge by commenting on my posts after I post my blessings, or by putting them on your blog.

Let's use this Thanksgiving season to truly remember all that God has done for us- past and present.



  1. Hello! I came to your blog through your sister's :-) I would love to do your challenge - I grumble far too much, so it would help me to be more thankful I think

    lots of love

  2. I'm so glad you're coming! I am looking forward to it!


  3. I'll try my best to participate too!! :)

  4. I might be double posting this, if I am, I do apologise; the page didn't load properly after I submitted my previous comment!

    I am planning to participate too, though I am not American, nor do we celebrate Thanksgiving. But it is still good to remind myself that I have a lot to be thankful for!
