Thankfulness

Hi everyone! I hope that you all had a great weekend and Thanksgiving! Since today is the last day of November, I’ve decided to do a post about thankfulness. Let me know what you think of it. 🙂 Enjoy!

( From the web )

I really like the picture that I found above because there is always something to be thankful for. We don’t always take the time to give thanks and be thankful but I think that it is very important that we do. We have all been blessed with so much and we should take the time to give thanks and we should be thankful for everything.

My sister told my about something that she read in a Corrie Ten Boom book and it really amazed me. She said that Corrie and her sister were in jail, and they were miserable. They had fleas in the cell where they were staying and her sister told her that she should be thankful for everything, even the fleas. That confused Corrie though. How could anyone possibly be  thankful for fleas? Well, every cell had a guard but for some reason, in Corrie’s cell, there wasn’t one. They didn’t know why but because of it, they were able to sneak a Bible into the cell. Well, they later found out that their guard wasn’t there because of the fleas, it didn’t want to get bitten. So, because of the fleas, they were able to sneak a Bible into their cell and minister to others who were with them. Corrie then learned to be thankful for everything, even fleas. This is just awesome to me. Though we don’t always understand why, we should be thankful for everything.

O give thanks unto the Lord, for His mercy endureth forever.

~Psalms 136 : 26

  1. The attitude that also comes with being thankful for everything will be sure to show, and others will notice. Corrine ten boom is a truly a Godly example to me.
