My brother called this weekend to ask about Thanksgiving plans.
Thanksgiving plans? But it's only October.
But as we started to talk through realities-school schedules, children's sporting events, work and my trip to Africa the last week of November, I realized, that actually, it's not too early to start talking about Thanksgiving.
In fact, as I listened to the two Thanksgiving radio features Anne Graham Lotz recently recorded, I appreciated the reminder that "thanksgiving" is something we need to be mindful about all year long!
"Our gratitude to God isn't meant to be measured out once a year around a dining room table. It's to be genuine "thanksgiving" in whatever we do-wherever we are!" -- Anne
With the days as full as they are for most of us, I have to admit that I'm not as quick to stop and give thanks as I should be. These two 1:00 features are great reminders from Anne even before the holiday season officially begins to consider the question, "What has God done for you recently for which you've yet to thank Him?"
Now that's a long list I'm grateful to have: good health so that I could hit my day running (literally--at the gym!), a few moments with my three children this morning before school to talk and pray and, ok, yes, I'm thankful for my cup of Starbucks this morning too!
How about you? What are you thankful for today?
