Being Grateful

It’s not just another day;
It’s Thanksgiving.
Be grateful today
For being able to see
The beauty of His creation.

The faces of people,
And the opportunity
To listen to their story.
On this day,
Open your heart
To the greatness around you.

Flip a switch
And the light comes on.
Through technology,
Catch up on what friends
Are doing using social media.

But most of all,
May everyone you meet
Be blessed by you
Because of the overflow of gratefulness
And then it will be
The best Thanksgiving ever.

 

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
