With Autumn on the wane, I find myself reflective and pondering so many things. The changes in our nation, elections, horrible evil around the world, pain, suffering, friendships, serving others, walking with God in hard times.
I don't have any answers. I only know He keeps calling me to keep my eyes on Him. On His work in my life - stretching me, correcting me - opening my eyes to needs, to love others, to have compassion, to pray, to be His hands and feet.
With the holidays on the horizon, I am focused on Thankfulness.
I think it is a learned skill, being thankful. I want to teach my children to recognize their blessings, and to think of being a blessing to others. It's something we'll all work at for the rest of our lives.
Regardless of the season we can be thankful.
