It's easy when we are surrounded by family and friends at Thanksgiving and Christmas to focus on what we are thankful for...we have them right in front of us. But after everyone has went home, back to their own daily lives, the celebrations are over, the routine is back in full swing...we put the festivities out of our minds...the winter blues can creep in.

My dad says, "The problem with life is, it is so daily". So many of us just cannot seem to handle the day to day...we are so much better with the pop ups and pop ins than with the faithfulness/dailiness part.
When we see ourselves getting too bogged down with the dailiness of life, looking around and seeing nothing new or the routine is starting to get to us...REMEMBER to be THANKFUL.
I have posted this scripture before, but I needed it today and I would like to share it again. I love it in any translation but I adore the way the Message Bible has it.
On your feet now—applaud !
Bring a gift of laughter,
Know this: is God, and God, .
He made us; we didn’t make him.
Enter with the password: “Thank you!”
Make yourselves at home, talking praise.
For is sheer beauty,
all-generous in love,
loyal always and ever.
-Psalm 100 MSG
I am going to have this scripture made into a sign and hang it on my wall in my kitchen/family room area. I need to be reminded daily, TO BE THANKFUL!
I will sing/dance myself into His presence today...Love that. Although, Henry told me that boys don't dance because it makes them into POOFY POODLES...best line ever.
