In the world we live in today, we take many things for granted.  If we go to a restaurant, we want quick service, correct orders and a nice server.  This is just one of the things we have come to expect out of life. But consider this…Be ThankfulWow!! What a challenge!  If you are anything like me, you immediately started to list off things that you are thankful for… my family
my house
my car
my education
my friends
my bed
my clothes

Then I realized: I was being petty.  I have so much to be grateful for, things which everyday I take for granted.  My health, the trees, the sky, the sun, everything on this earth… but even more so, my very existence and my salvation.  God sent his only son to die for my sins.  Even if I were the only person on this world, He still would have died for me.  Nothing I ever say or do can be enough to be worthy of this gift.  This is just one of the many reasons that I am thankful for God loving me and saying all I have to is ask and receive the gift He has given.

Challenge: everyday, be thankful for the great and wonderful gifts which are all around us, given by our loving Father in heaven.
