Ever hear of “Christmas in July,” well, we’re celebrating “Thanksgiving in June!”
If only I could coordinate a delicious Turkey dinner through the internet somehow?!?
As a parent of a five year old, we have conversations (quite often) about being thankful for what we have instead of always thinking of something else we need/want.
More than once, the words that came out of my lips, (in my stern Mama voice), came back to hit ME in the face! I needed to hear my own advice, to be thankful for what I am blessed with instead of always picking things apart, wanting more, or feeling “left out,” somehow.
Thanks to Social Media we are bombarded DAILY with ads designed to make us feel like our lives are incomplete without their product, service, or whatever it is they’re selling. And these ads are done so well that we just think we’re scrolling our newsfeed of “friends,” which causes us to think that EVERYONE is that skinny, well dressed, organized, rich etc.
Assuming I’m not alone, I want to sincerely ask from the bottom of my heart …
Would you join me for this little 10 day Journey?!
We’re going to look at verses in the Bible on gratitude, discover how we can apply what we read, and then each day be intentional about looking for “our greatest blessing of that day.”
And Bonus! It’s encouraged and, actually EASIER, if you get your family on board too!
I mean, couldn’t we ALL use a little shift in our focus … be more intentional about discovering the good in our lives instead of focusing on what we don’t have/think we need/or dislike about ourselves?!?!?
Here’s The Deal:
Your task or challenge is simply to sit down at the end of each day and share the best blessing you received that day.
(It could be as simple as “traffic being lighter than normal“, “or the weather was pleasant“.)
Once you’ve identified your greatest blessing for the day …
You need to:
- POST IT TO THE FILL ACTIVITY FEED – Feel free to include a picture if you like, or simply type out what your blessing was for that day.
- Share it with someone else. Text or call a friend, or …. If you live with others, I encourage you to make this a family thing, inviting them to do this little challenge alongside you. Sit down to a family dinner, before bed, or whenever you have the time, and take turns simply sharing the best blessing you received that day.
Kids will LOVE this, and you’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ll all start looking for the positive things in your days, instead of focusing on the negative.
This small act is going to make ALL of our lives instantly brighter!
