It’s hard to believe Thursday has rolled around one more time…so quickly. When I was a girl many people greater in years and wiser than me, told me to “enjoy the present”, because “time flies when you get older”. I was often admonished not to “wish my life away” when I expressed my desire to be older and on my own, liberated from my parents’ control. Back in those days I thought such wise counsel was baseless and unlikely…even foolish. Afterall…how could time fly?
Today I am thankful for wise counsel. I’m thankful for those who gave me wise counsel when I was a girl even though I rejected much of it at the time and considered it silly back in those days. I still remember their words clearly and recognize them for the true wisdom they were. I am thankful for my godly friends, past and present, who are not afraid to give godly counsel and for God’s word so full of truth and guidance to live by. I’m thankful for my pastor who shares biblical wisdom that helps me in my daily walk with Christ.
This past Sunday as I parked my car before going into church, I noticed the sign my pastor shares bits of wisdom with passersby. This week the saying fits the Attitude of Gratitude theme perfectly and has helped me remember to pause and think of all I have to be thankful for throughout the week.
Have you paused to think of the many things you have to be thankful for, or does your attitude of gratitude need an adjustment? Feel free to join in on Thursday and share what you are thankful for.

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:20
