BLOG CHALLENGE and GIVE AWAY!!! Gratitude Month ~ November ~ Today I am thankful for...

Colossians 3:15
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

This month I challenge all of you, my blogging friends, to post a gratitude post daily. If possible, post a picture to go along with it! As an extra incentive, I will offer up something special for those of you that participate in this every day...I'll start counting from November 3rd since some of you may not see this until then. Everyone that participates daily starting no later than the 3rd will be entered in a drawing at the end of the month. Keep it simple or go all out! Comment and let me know if you're up for the challenge!


Today, I am thankful for my church family. We celebrated the wedding of Juan and Denisse Castillo. It was a beautiful wedding and I enjoyed seeing so many of our church members come together to help them make it so special. I love the members at our church like my very own family. Pastor Marco and I thank the Lord daily for them!

I think this will be a really good challenge for me, considering I feel like all I've done this year is focus on a lot of negativity. It's time I turn that around. I'm in.

Sherry, did my first gratitude post today. And I have to say I think it really helped me. My husband called me this afternoon and told me the motor on his car is dead. (We just put $400 into the car last week). So now we have to go out and get a new car. He is really stressed, but I'm just thanking the Lord and at peace that God will provide. So I think having an attitude of gratitude helped to temper my anxiety with piece!

I am up for the challenge. I hope I can make it all the way through the month. Guess that depends on whether I have internet access over Thanksgiving and that will be determined by where we gather which has not been decided yet. Thanks for the push to blog every day.
