Life { Faith } Tea

and ramblings on everything in between



Happy Thanksgiving, y’all! What a perfect day to be still and give thanks and eat, eat, eat. This time of year always has me thinking about the things I take for granted instead of giving thanks for each day. My youth group co-leader posed this question to our high school girls recently:

“What if when you wake up tomorrow morning God has taken away everything you didn’t thank Him for today?”

Pause here for a second. Let the weight of that sink in.

Oh.My.Goodness. How awful to think of the little I would wake up with on that make-believe morning.

We cruise through life assuming everything we need and love will be there every time we want it. It takes more effort to stop and recognize it as a blessing than it does to become so accustomed to it that we don’t see it anymore. So with that, I’m dead set on waking up with all that I am thankful for tomorrow morning. I hope you take a moment today to reflect on what your own list contains.
