Oh how I love Thanksgiving month

I have got so much to write about! Life is good--really really good right now :) God is good! I love the idea of posting something everyday that I am thankful for. Yet sometimes I feel like I am bragging--ya know cuz' life is just so AMAZING ;)! Last year I tried to curb it by being thankful for common everyday type of things that we can all be thankful for no matter our life circumstances. They are so many, and we should be giving thanks for them.

Yet this morning I was helping my son learn a scripture about gratitude for *primary tomorrow. The assignment didn't have a specific scripture with it so we were looking up scriptures to do with gratitude. I came across this scripture in Psalms:

  • Psalms 105:1

    1 O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.

    His deeds are different in my life than in yours. Yet The Lord has worked miracles in all of our lives. So I am going to make known His deeds in my life. I probably won't write everyday--that is a hard order to commit to in my life right now. Yet I would like to! 
    My greatest desire is that it doesn't come off as boasting but if it does, here are the words of one of my heroes--*Ammon" 
      • Alma 26:36

        36 Now if this is boasting, even so will I boast; for this is my life and my light, my joy and my salvation, and my redemption from everlasting wo. Yea, blessed is the name of my God, who has been mindful of this people, who are a branch of the tree of Israel, and has been lost from its body in a strange land; yea, I say, blessed be the name of my God, who has been mindful of us, wanderers in a strange land.
      So today we will start off with the fact that I am thankful for the scriptures. I am thankful that we have the dealings of God with people for thousands of years. I am thankful to have these stories of truth. I am thankful that truth is timeless and that I can find help for my latter-day life in them. I am also thankful that I believe that God speaks to me. He uses the scriptures, at times,to tell me the things I need to know.
