30 Days of Thankfulness – 11/7/22

For the month of November, I’m going to continue with my habit of posting things I am thankful for. Thankfulness is different from happiness, and I don’t want to conflate the two.

Today I’m thankful for the wildlife that inhabit my little corner of the world. Mama and baby deer are helping clean up after the high winds brought limbs and leaves down. They are a constant joy to me (except when they eat all the blooms off of the new flowers I just bought.)

30 Days of Thankfulness – 11/7/20

Today I’m thankful for my feathered friends that brighten my day as they flutter and flit past my window. Juncos, chickadees, robins, Stellar jays, finches, hummingbirds, sparrows, and flickers. They dine at the bird feeder, and bathe in the bird bath (when it’s warm enough). They are a constant joy and entertainment to me.

For the month of November, I’m going to try to include gratitude in all my posts (and post every day.)

Advent: Light #EvergreenAdvent

Isaiah 60:1-5

The Glory of Zion

“Arise, shine, for your light has come,
    and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth
    and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
    and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
    and kings to the brightness of your dawn.

“Lift up your eyes and look about you:
    All assemble and come to you;
your sons come from afar,
    and your daughters are carried on the hip.
Then you will look and be radiant,
    your heart will throb and swell with joy;
the wealth on the seas will be brought to you,
    to you the riches of the nations will come.”

Light

On these dark, foggy days in the dying of the year, we get occasional glimpses of the light that is to come when the clouds thin and the light shines through.
