A New Day of Thanks

I am feeling especially thankful and inspired by today’s weather – blue skies, whit clouds, colorful landscaping and slightly cool Autumn temperatures. What’s so special about that you ask, it’s like this every year in nearly every state of the US. That’s probably true, but I didn’t know last year that I would be here this year to enjoy it again….that’s what makes it special.

That being said, I’m grateful to the Creator for making it possible and I am inspired by it all and will show that gratitude by going out there and enjoying it. The Lord wants us to enjoy what He has provided. So, maybe a walk in the neighborhood, or better yet, seek out a walking trail in a nearby park. Several years ago [not saying how many -lol] my two daughters and I would pack a lunch and a snack and ride our bikes through Mill Creek Park [see picture above and below].  Sigh! Those were the days!

These are new days and there is always other ways to enjoy everything about life and what it has to offer. I encourage you to take advantage or “seize the day’ for all it’s worth. Take family or friends and get out there and enjoy the blessings that nature has to offer. Hokey as it may sound to some, you won’t be sorry you did. You’ll look back and have fond memories of these times.

And white you’re out there, give God the praise for the beauty of it all and allowing you to experience it again.

Me? Well …. it’s a toss up between taking a neighborhood walk after dinner [helps with burning some of the calories I’ll consume at dinner] or shoot some hoops with the grandkids.  I hope you’ll find some time to enjoy it too.

Be Encouraged – You Are Loved
