Is There Anything To Be Grateful For?
We all know that there are a lot of people being really challenged right now in ways that perhaps they never have been before. And while you might think that all of this would dampen folks’ gratitude, I haven’t found that to be the case. Actually, quite the opposite. What I’ve found is that these challenging times have made many people even more aware of what they do have to be grateful for.
Gratitude can play a big role in helping us find hope and healing in our lives. It helps us realize the good that is in our lives, even through the challenging times. Gratitude for good helps us get out of ourselves a bit to see that there is a Higher Power governing us all.
Having taken that step, we can get a glimpse that this Power is all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-loving. This Power is something more than maybe we can completely comprehend – it is certainly more than we can see from a limited viewpoint of things. But no matter how things seem to be going from a narrow perspective, the good that we do see can give us confidence that this Power is completely caring for everyone all of the time. And that is something to be grateful for.
Yes, I think that perhaps Thanksgiving is coming at just the right time!
