give thanks...

See that pretty little button over there on the sidebar? I've joined up with the Giving Thanks Challenge over at South Breeze Farm. Please feel free to click on it and join up yourself.
Thirty days of giving thanks, something we should all be doing every day but it seems so easy to get away from at times. God's grace is so awesome isn't it? I don't know about anyone else but I've been pretty negative here at home lately, focusing more on myself than much of anything else. And when I start feeling discontent within my own heart it's so easy for me to start finding fault in everything around me.
At times like these it's easy for me to withdraw from everyone and everything, including God. The last thing I want to do is give thanks, but it's times like this when that's exactly what I need to be doing. Instead of focusing on everything that's not going the way I would like it to, I need to be down on my knees giving thanks for all that's gone so good in life!

Thanks Tiffany! You've inspired me to step up my personal challenge to stop grumbling. I'm going to give thanks to God every time I get the urge to grumble.
