April Theme: Gratitude

Happy April Friends!

I don't know about you but the light snow falling outside of my window this morning really reminds me of how ready I am for rainstorms and flowers. Along with hopes of beautiful spring weather, today I am glad to inform you that April's theme is Gratitude. I hope that you will join us as we learn about gratitude and how to be thankful in all circumstances. 

When I thought of this month's theme this verse immediately came to mind...

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 

In honor of practicing gratitude despite circumstances, I hope that you will join me in making a list of what you are thankful for. I think that you will find even in the hardest of times, there is always something to be grateful for.

I am thankful for...
Good friends, babies, family, music, birds, sunshine, warm weather, a God who heals, joy, hope, muffins, coffee, puppies, pink tulips, my job, an education, a warm home, a clean house, quiet moments, candles, chocolate, colors, my car, birthdays, redemption, Easter, a God who loves, art, pianos, guitars, buttercups, doors and God's provision.

What are you thankful for today?

  1. Mmmmm... it's always nice to read the positive stuff :) Thanks for your gratitude!

  2. Thank you for the reminder! That verse was fresh breath for me this morning.

  3. This month's theme is so perfect with winter being on its way out!!! :)

    Reading over your list reminded me of so many things that I really am grateful for even though I don't really THINK about them!

    I'll add these things:

    God, the Gospel, my community, dinners (and ANYTHING) with friends, people who have shared their knowledge with me over the years, family, fingernail polish, fresh spring air, my vacuum, laughter, warm socks, hot water, record labels whose artists rap the gospel, blooms, skype, sunshine, memories, and the list goes on and on!!!

  4. I love your list! I'm so ready for the fresh Spring Air!!! We've finally gotten a taste of it here and it has been SO nice.
