Month of Gratitude - November 30

So I am a little late writing this.  I ended up spending the last day of the month feeling ill and sleeping.

As I look back on the previous posts in November, I found a common theme: Love of family, friends, home and faith.  These are the things that shape my life and make me know that I am truly blessed.

Now we enter the Christmas Season.  How I wish that the Spirit of love and peace that is felt by so many at this time would last throughout the year and be felt by all.  

I know that Jesus Christ was born in a stable over 2,000 years ago.  He marked the path and led the way back to God.  By following Him, we can be truly happy.  He is my Savior and because of Him, I know that my sins can be forgiven and that I can live forever with my family.  This gift is given to all.  It is this knowledge that lets me know that I am truly blessed.

Here is one of my favorite Christmas stories:

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men."


  1. I've really enjoyed your month of gratitude, Ann. It's a big undertaking, and you did it with genuine class. Thanks for the daily reminder of all the things we can be thankful for. Happy December, friend.

    1. Again, thank you for your kind words and support. I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday.
