ThankFULL

In college I watched an Oprah Winfrey on writing in a thank you journal. Everyday you were supposed to right at least one thing you were thankful for. I did this. And it helped we through a pretty crappy time I was having (don't worry I'm fine now!) Anyway I thought I would start that up again, since we are in the month of November and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I decided that each day I would post at lease one thing I am thankful for.

Today I am thankful for eternal perspective. Without it I don't know what people think about this world we live in or how they survive. I am so thankful to know that Heavenly Father loves us and is continually mindful of us. And that ultimately our faith in him, and obedience to him is all that matters. Easier said than done though, especially when we deal with "the now" which is the economy, our potential President, etc. But it is my knowledge and faith in the eternities that keeps a smile on my face and hope in my heart, and for that I am THANKFUL!
