Choose to Be
I have a date on Tuesdays now at Two Shoes Tuesday. You should check it out.
As I read blog posts this morning, it is apparent to me that most of us are feeling the same way today. For some reason, today seems to be the day . . . to feel grateful . . . to see things in a different way . . . to notice . . . to choose to be thankful. November is typically the month to acknowledge our blessings . . . but today in particular just has that feel about it. I don't know what it is, but I feel compelled to feel grateful today. I look around and see the beauty around me (well, not here in the basement - - although I'm sure I could find beauty down here if I chose to), but this little town of ours is gorgeous this time of year. It's almost as if it was supposed to be part of New England but escaped to the west instead, to grace us once a year with explosive autumn colors.
It is my choice to feel grateful today . . . not only for the beauty of nature, but for so many other countless things. I feel small, yet I feel so noticed. Noticed by a God who has blessed me so abundantly. And for that I choose gratitude.
