What does Thankful mean?
: glad that something has happened or not happened, that something or someone exists, etc.

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Me: Give thanks in ALL situations? How is that EVEN possible? How do I give thanks when my three year refuses to go to sleep, or when my dog chews up my new UGGS, or when I get a rude email at work?
After thinking about this, I realized I’m asking the wrong question. It’s not HOW we give thanks it’s WHY we give thanks. You give thanks in ALL situations BECAUSE it’s the will of God. It’s almost like that Parent/Child relationship. We do it because our FATHER said so.

Ok, I’ll get off the pool pit and continue with what I really meant this post to be about.
What I am thankful for:
4. I am thankful for my job.
5. I am thankful for my AR friends; they truly have made AR our home.
And I’m slightly (extremely) thankful for: wine, running groups, Oreo’s and the fact that my co-workers pretend not to see my playing on the internet at work.
