Last year I swore I would NOT go through another winter without one of those Happy Lights. True to my word, I purchased one a couple weeks ago. It's a compact size so its convenient to move from space to space as needed. I had it set up in my kitchen window sill to start, letting it wake me as I made breakfast but I found that kind of startling light that early in the morning just didn't make sense to me, non-early bird that I am. I moved it to my work space, next to my computer. I think the discipline of sitting by the light at my computer desk will double as incentive to do some writing! Brilliant idea!!
It's only been a couple of weeks so I can't speak with authority to the job its doing but I am hopeful.
That's a great way to remind ourselves of all we have been blessed with in this life. Some of the things I've posted are simple: warm home, coffee, cozy socks. Some have more significance: a loving husband, friends, good health. Some have deeper meaning: God's gift of salvation, being His child, eternal life in Christ.
Whether it's elementary or complex, the mind experiences a shift in attitude when our hearts exhibit gratitude.
Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all things. 1 Thessalonians 5.16-18
Thanksgiving is just a couple of days away. Have you made a thankful list? If not, what are you waiting for?
