30 Days of Thanksgiving // Week Four Recap

I have been counting my blessings each day for four weeks now and I have found a pattern... Everyday I am thankful for: the food I eat, the faces I see, the water I get to use and the world I live in. The more I am grateful for these blessings the more I want others to experience them too. Starving children should have food, orphaned children should have a family, countries with poor sanitation should have clean water and proper latrines, and those of us rushing through life in a first world country need to slow down and relish the beauty of nature that God surrounds us with daily.

On Veteren's day I was thinking about how our country's freedom has never been free of charge. But then I thought about how our freedom in Christ didn't come free of charge either. The Son of God knew He was going to sacrifice everything to give us freedom from sin, and He did. The more I reflect on His great love, the more grateful I am just to live. 

How about you? What are some of the blessings in your daily life?
