Challenge: Thankful Journey

"I rejoiced in the Lord Greatly that now at last you have renewed your care for me. You were, in fact, concerned about me, but lacked the opportunity [to show it]. I don't say this out of need, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am [in].  I know both how to have a little, and I know how to have a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being content-whether will fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me."
Philippians 4:11-13

Hello Everyone,

I got a great idea from my cousin about expressing thankfulness each day leading up to Thanksgiving Day. Since November has already started, we are 9 days behind.  I would like to know what you are thankful for.  Each day for the next 15 days, I want to hear a thankful praise from you.

As the Apostle Paul expressed his beliefs on contentment.  What ever situation you find yourself in, offer the sacarifice of praise and thanksgiving to the Lord.
