“…and that ye live in thanksgiving daily, for the many mercies and blessings which he doth bestow upon you.” Alma 34:38

Thanksgiving is a holiday skipped by the world. We jump straight from Halloween to Christmas, and although I love both of those Holidays, Thanksgiving is a time that I don’t appreciate missing. In a world moving swiftly around us, how do we find the time to slow down and remember to “live in thanksgiving daily” as Alma directs? It’s a choice. A choice to take the time to be thankful for the many blessings we have. A choice to look around and see just how lucky we are. We must simply decide to open our eyes.

I love this image of Christ from the bible videos. It is so direct, and so peaceful. I look and see the light that Christ emanates and it gives me the hope and motivation to be a little better.

Here’s to a thankful season surrounded by the love of my life and my sweet family as well as a time to look around and see just how Christ has blessed my life.
