[30Days: day 1]

[30Days: day 1]

A couple of Sundays ago, my pastor challenged us to be thankful.

Not just thankful, but intentionally writing down three things that we’re thankful for and describing one in detail.

So… I want to try blogging for 30 days straight, short posts on being thankful for little things in life. Join me!

DAY 1: Wednesday, October 28, 2015

  1. Blue bright skies. This time of year is rather dark and gloomy in Kyiv, with gray clouds hanging low and pressing on my mood. Therefore, every time I get to see the actual blue skies, I physically feel better. Go figure… But I am really thankful for colorful heavens.
  2. The Bible study group. I am thankful for the Wednesday groups our friends are doing. I love our meetings and the “meatiness” of the conversation. We dig deep and every time after the group, I am amazed at God’s love and providence. It is one of the most encouraging study groups that I’ve been to and I really value that we can be honest with each other there without fear of being laughed at for sharing our deepest concerns and worries.
  3. Hot water. It’s cold now and there are times when the only thing that seems to warm me up is a hot shower. And since we have installed a water heater last year, I have been enjoying this little (but, oh so important for me) pleasure.

What are you thankful for today?
