the season of thanksgiving

It is November. It is the season of gratitude. A time that so many people intentionally dedicate to being thankful.
I know that it is important to be thankful all year, but I have to admit that I really do love this specific time of thanksgiving!
My heart always fills with joy when I purposefully reflect on the many ways that I have been blessed! 
It is so good to be reminded to be thankful & to be reminded that God is the source of it all!

That being said, the thing that I am the most thankful for in my life is my faith... 
Knowing & feeling God's unfailing love everyday is the greatest joy I have!
Growing up, my family played a big role in my faith. I was taken to church every Sunday since I was born... 
Now that I am older & I have made my own choices with my faith, I am so thankful for being brought up that way. 
My family & my church have really helped me to grow & be secure in my own faith... Because of my faith &
 my church, I have had the opportunity to do many amazing things & to meet many special people along the way! 
I am so thankful for a church that is all about teaching the true words of the Bible & reflecting God's love to the world. 

This past Sunday, at church, the message was actually all about fellowship & it reminded me of how thankful 
I should be for the kind of fellowship I have at my church... We are all very different in ages, backgrounds, etc... 
But so many times we have laughed & cried together. We have shared meals & made memories together. 
I have grown so much because of that fellowship! And today I am especially thankful for my church!
