Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever. Psalm 107:1
Last week challenged this series for the new year—A Full 2022. Covid hit me and I wasn’t feeling “full,” unless pain and congestion count. Hence my omission of a post last Thursday.
I insisted that despite chills, fever, and aches, I would be true to my goal of a full year. I chose to be thank-FULL. I thanked God for everything I could think of—warm blankets, a patient husband, chicken soup, ibuprofen, a cozy robe, calls from kids, soft tissues, cold water, dry crackers, mail delivery, the first true snowfall in our new house, squeals from neighbors sledding, sunshine and blue skies, deer prints in the snow…
I found the choice was not always easy but what was my option? Should I let disappointment ransack the first week of the year and pillage my heart?
Let’s begin making 2022 a FULL year by being thank-full.
