"It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
Mental note to self:
- Give thanks to Him right away every morning
This will get me off to thinking in the right direction first thing. No room for negative or ugly thoughts when I'm thanking Him for everything I can think of as soon as I awake.
- Declare His lovingkindness every morning
If I'm alive and breathing, He has been gracious to me and has shown me great lovingkindness to allow me to see the faces of those I love once again.
- Every night, review His faithfulness to me and mine
If we made it through the day intact, and we had everything we needed along the way, He has been most faithful to us, and I should declare it to Him in a prayer of thanks, and teach my children the same.
That's pretty straightforward, I think. I'll spend some time praising Him now. How about you?
There is always, always, always something to be thankful for....
