I’m participating in a little Facebook challenge to post something or someone that I am thankful for throughout “Thirty Days of Thanksgiving” this November.
I would follow through on that set-up and say, “WRONG,” but well, actually it is pretty simple– on the surface.
Cutting through platitudes and digging into the places of my heart that hold the deepest gratitude is the tough part of the assignment. I find myself not wanting to type what’s expected, but rather desiring to reveal unknown pieces of my heart, hidden by time and distance or silenced by superficiality. But, I want to share more than what floats on the surface. Remember, “..deep calls unto deep…” (Psalm 42:7).
Having a forum to share our gratefulness is cathartic. It’s difficult for me to stop at one thing, person or idea each day– so I may not. I have a feeling that after November comes-and-goes, I will have plenty left inside my soul to expose.
Don’t be satisfied with delivering platitudes; share gratitude.
Gratitude conveys love.
