Check Yourself Out
What are you thankful for? What good things or people make your life as great as it is? And don’t say, "There’s nothing to be thankful for!" There is something, big or small, in everyone’s life, that makes you feel like smiling.
Make a list of everything that you’re thankful for, and post it in the comments to share with other people. Really think about this. Jot down everything that you’re thankful for – no matter how big or small. You’re thankful for being alive (a big one). You’re thankful for having an allowance raise (a small one). Think of things that you usually don’t think about that still are good things in your life. You might not know it, but you’re probably thankful that there are those pretty wildflowers scattered across your field, or the birds that fly above the trees in your backyard. Post it in the comments.
God wants us to be thankful for every little thing that is good. He also want us to thank him for that. He made those wildflowers, he made those birds, he made your best friend, and he softened your mom’s heart so you’d get that allowance raise! So, after making your list, start praying, thanking God for each and every thing. Your list will probably be long – post it anyway!
