November 2023: Embracing Gratitude & Things I’m Loving

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and the gratitude in my heart is overflowing. Even in the tough, messy, and mundane moments, God’s goodness shines through. Thank you, God, for sustaining me, even when I didn’t want to be sustained. Your relentless fight for me and the deep love you shower upon me leave me in awe. Your mercies, renewed every morning, are a constant source of gratitude.

As we step into this Thanksgiving week, let’s take a moment to reflect on the blessings that surround us. And here’s a gentle reminder: consider logging off socials. Personally, I find so MUCH joy in putting my phone aside when I’m with family during the holidays. There’s something magical about being present in the moment and barely picking up the phone. I encourage you to do the same. I hope you have an amazing Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Reflections & Journal Prompt:

Take a moment to reflect on the small, often overlooked joys that made your Thanksgiving beautiful in the past. Whether it’s a shared laugh, a comforting aroma in the kitchen, or a heartfelt conversation, capture these moments and express gratitude for the beauty in the details.

  1. Connections That Warm the Heart:

    • Consider the people who surrounded you during Thanksgiving—family, friends, or even new acquaintances. Reflect on the connections that brought warmth to your day. Write about the conversations, shared stories, and the sense of togetherness that made this Thanksgiving memorable.

  2. Personal Growth and Reflection:

    • Thanksgiving is not just about the feast but also a time for self-reflection. Consider the personal growth and lessons you’ve experienced throughout the year. What challenges have you overcome, and how have they shaped you? Express gratitude for the strength and resilience that brought you to this point.

  3. Quiet Moments of Reflection:

    • Amidst the hustle and bustle, there are often quiet moments of reflection during Thanksgiving. Whether it’s a solitary walk, a glance out the window, or a few moments of stillness, reflect on these introspective moments. Consider what you’re thankful for in the silence, acknowledging the depth that reflection brings to the holiday.
