This week the United States celebrates Thanksgiving. The time together with family and friends on the specific day makes me pause and think about all of the things to be thankful for. We live in an imperfect world fill with blessings and challenges….some random, some self created. In my opinion, this is the time to take a step back and focus on all the beauty of life as we live it. It’s easy to get caught up in the negativity of the world we live in, being reminded of it daily via news and online access.
I start with being thankful for all of the people in my life that I love and enjoy. Whether it be family or friends. Think about how many people you have come to know and love throughout your life. Be thankful for the love that comes from those relationships as well as the guidance we receive from others experience.
Think about the beauty of the world we live in and how inspiring nature is in its natural state.
From that overall view point, I come down to those quiet, peaceful moments with those closest to you albeit a parent, spouse, child or very close friend. In those moments we help each other grow and find peace within.
And that brings me back to my faith and trusting in His faithfulness and being grateful for it.
Again, I’m not saying there aren’t issues and challenges we all face daily, but I do believe it’s good to take a step back and think about the people and things that we are blessed with.
Thoughts? As I have said before, everyone reacts to visual art techniques and looks differently, so I am not in the least offended by opinions.
