Maybe it’s the weather, maybe it’s the post-Halloween sugar crash . . . but the past couple of days I’ve been feeling rather down. I think for people who live in the Northern hemisphere, fall is a time when we begin to gather ourselves in. It’s a time when we become a bit introspective – reflecting upon the our lives, and storing up our thoughts to make a lovely simmering stew.
Thanksgving also encourages introspection – making a list of all the things we’re greatful for. I realize it’s usually the very small moments that I’m most thankful for. I remember driving one time in my car and the sun was shining and in that moment, everything seemed okay. Those are the moments I’m thankful for. The few seconds when the sun was just right and I could feel God smiling on me.
