Thanksgiving Challenge

10:43 PM

I saw this posted on Facebook and I thought I'd post it here too. This is a great idea! Reminding ourselves of all the blessings in our lives is always a good thing and will help you discover just how much you really do have to be thankful for.

Quite a few years ago now, my son recommended that I read "Wild At Heart: Discovering The Secret of a Man's Soul" by John Eldredge. This is an amazing book for anyone who hasn't read it. Personally, I'd recommend it to every woman because it will do more to help you understand how men and sons think and act more than any other book I've read.

One of the things that has always stuck with me about the book was that Eldredge poses the question: If God took away everything today that we weren't thankful for yesterday, would we still be able to see the faces of our children? Would we be able to hear their voices? Would we be able to smell a rose? Would we be able to walk?

Use this challenge to rediscover the things in your life that you have to be thankful for...count your blessings even in these tough times.

Here's the challenge!

Every day this month until Thanksgiving, think of one thing that you are thankful for and post it with the title: "Today I am thankful for..." The longer you do it, the harder it gets! Now if you think you can do it, then repost this message as your status to invite others to take the challenge. Then post what YOU are thankful for today.

Make sure you leave me a comment letting me know what YOU'RE thankful for!

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
