Amanda at A Joyful Noise has invited her blog readers to join her in in a "Give Thanks Challenge" by KBR Ministries. The idea is that you write down 7 things every day in the month of November that you are thankful for. At the end of November you can write a letter to KBR to let them know you completed the challenge and they will send you a set of handmade note cards. I think that is very generous of them, but I would encourage you to do this to strengthen your walk with God primarily, and if you want the note cards, that's fine. I am excited about doing this because I know I can always be more thankful than I am and I know that there is power in being thankful. I wont be posting something everyday, but most likely once a week as time permits. I am also adding my own little challenge to it and will purposefully try to find things that aggravate me and add them to my list of thanks. Things such as physical aspects I don't like about myself (example: my poor eye sight. I'm the only one in my family who has to wear glasses before the age of 40), or people and circumstances throughout the month that I may not be happy with, but can somehow find it within my heart to be thankful for. I challenge you to join in as well. We may be a day or two late, but it's never too late to be thankful!
