Having a day set aside for thankfulness is such a treat. To gather around the table, feast, and remember our blessings is a holy thing. So often, the worries of the moment crowd out gratitude. But dwelling on the nature and character of God draws us back into gratitude and peace.
It’s difficult to pin down one characteristic of God I’m most thankful for. How do you state your favorite thing about he who gives and sustains life and light? Yet in each season of life, I find myself needing to lean into a different aspect of his character.
Right now my family faces a lot of uncertainty. An unexpected lay off—and lost income—has thrown everything up into the air for us. As we start the holiday season, we don’t know what city or even state we will end it in. We get through our days, piecing together gigs, taking care of a toddler and a baby, and savoring this rare season with all four of us together all the time. Everything feels in flux.
