Thankful Thursdays: Gimme a T!
Thursday, October 13, 2011 by domesticateddilettante
The U.S. Thanksgiving holiday is exactly 7 weeks away from today. I thought it would be fun to spend the next six Thursdays focusing on the letters in the word “THANKS” and identifying something I’m especially thankful for that begins with the week’s letter. Does that make sense? Hold on…here’s what I mean.
This week I am thankful for…
It’s all we’ve got; yesterday is gone and tomorrow isn’t guaranteed.
As the saying goes, it’s why we call today the “present” – it is the most precious gift we hold in our hands. May we use our time today wisely, and as Hebrews 3:13 instructs,
“…encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today…”
We can’t change what happened yesterday, no matter how much we turn it over in our minds and think of what we coulda, shoulda, woulda said or done (or not said or done) differently.
We can’t count on tomorrow, even though procrastinators know it is always the busiest day of the year, because that’s when we’re going to get around to everything. Uh huh. Sure.
Squeeze everything you can into today. And squeeze everything you can out of it, too.
Hug your kids.
Smile at strangers.
Pray for a friend.
Pray for an enemy.
Just do it.
