Giving thanks

November is a great month to count your blessings.

As we are approaching the end of October, the next month we will enter is November. When people think of November, they often think of Thanksgiving. This is my favorite holiday, next to Christmas, and I love it for many reasons.

One of the main reasons I love Thanksgiving is because it is a great time to think about all of the things I am thankful for. On top of this, I always like to think about the reason why I am so blessed in life. It is because of God that I have these things, but I often take this for granted and I think many of us do. God blesses each of us with so many things, and the month of November is a great time to remember this.

One of the activities that I have done in the past during November is to make a list of things I am thankful for. A great way to do this is to do it on a daily basis. Each day, starting with the first of the month, you can choose one thing you are thankful for.

You can write it in a notebook or post it on a social media site. As you do this, reflect on this one item each day and really think about how it affects your life. Thank God for this particular thing and remember that it is because of Him that you have this. Although this is an activity that we should do daily, it is something that many us fail to do. Make November an entire month of thankfulness and watch how God will use this to bless you.
