What makes you thankful?
It’s the first day of November. A month dedicated to thankfulness and gratitude. Before we know it, Thanksgiving will have come and gone, and Christmas will be upon us. But before we get lost in the holiday hustle and bustle, many women are making a point to slow down and be intentional about cultivating gratitude.
If you are thinking today’s featured post is titled, “5 ways to be thankful this holiday season,” I’m sorry to disappoint. But I’m actually taking this in an entirely different direction.
Thankful For The Scars
While reading through the posts that were linked up last week, I found a treasure.
Joan wrote about the scars she has experienced over the last year or so. Both physical and emotional.
And we can all relate to that, can’t we?
If we haven’t had health problems ourselves, we know someone who has. And everyone has emotional scars of some sort or another.
But where Joan went with that was what struck me the most about her post. She wasn’t complaining. Not in the least. Her experiences didn’t leave her bitter.
Moreover, she ended her post by shifting the focus from the scars in her life to the scars of Jesus. I couldn’t even begin to do it justice, so I really hope you take the time to hop over to her site and read it yourself.
