Take Time to Reflect On Your Blessings

Thanksgiving, is a holiday that it celebrated by many people of different faiths.  It is a season where most of us are on one accord; which is demonstrated by showing love, gratitude and kindness to one another.  This may also be a good time to reflect on your blessings. It doesn’t matter whether your blessings are large (new job, house, or car) or small (running water, electricity, ability to move on your own).  Earlier this year I created a blessing jar; and what I do is write down unexpected blessings ( a good conversation with a friend, a surprise visitor. or gift) that I am grateful for–it doesn’t matter if I am the giver or the receiver.  My intention is to take time to reflect on by blessings by setting aside time to read them one by one at the end of this year or the beginning of 2018.

My question to you is how do you give thanks for your blessings? How do you reflect on God’s goodness?

  1. Getting caught up in all the hectic, busyness of life, we all forget to take a moment and just say: “Thanks God!”, myself included! While it’d be great, of course, if we could all do this outside of the Thanksgiving season, this season is a helpful reminder to do just that- give thanks 🙂 I’m grateful for the reminder from your post!

    • Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I absolutely agree with you, By taking time daily to give thanks even if it is just a moment or two would be great and I feel will bring more joy into our lives and provide a way to de-stress from the busyness of life. An attitude of gratitude goes a long way.
