I love everything about fall. How about you?
We’ve been experiencing a lovely fall in the Alberta prairies. The result is the leaves have stayed on the trees much longer than I have seen in many years! I am grateful for the rich fall colours I can witness on the cherry and poplar trees in my own neighbourhood. So, I don’t have to go far to experience the splendours of fall!
In Canada, our Thanksgiving holiday is in October. I’m thankful for a sister who makes Thanksgiving dinner, as I can’t seem to master cooking a turkey. It tends to be over-cooked, or not done at the same time as all the other meal items! But dessert…that’s another story. I am actually okay at baking desserts. So you can see where my priorities lie!
Benefits of Gratitude
I know that we see many messages about the benefit of gratitude, including that gratitude can make us happier. It’s a message, though, that we need to keep taking in. Other benefits of daily gratitude include:
- feeling more positive emotions
- improving your health
- helping you better manage negative emotions such as conflict
- becoming more present in life
- developing healthier relationships
A mindset of gratitude does take practice. Thankfully, even our bible reading can fill us with gratitude! To help, I created a calendar with daily thanksgiving scriptures. Will you join me in these daily readings? You can download a PDF version of the calendar HERE.
