Happy November 1st!

I love November--the month of Thanksgiving.
It's such a wonderful time of the year, isn't it?
But just like any month, we will have our ups and downs.

Sometimes it is easy to give thanks.
Other times, well, it takes a conscious effort.

I love the gentle reminder
1 Thessalonians 5:18 gives:
"Be thankful in all circumstances."

What a good reminder for me today.
Happy November 1st!

I needed that, too. Thanks! By the way, one of the reasons I became a follower is because I saw you had a pug :) thanks for your comments!

I'm loving the quote and the gray background.

Such a good reminder. Especially for me right now (we are waiting for our house to sell, moved to a new state - 9 hrs from our families, living in someone else's place with someone else's stuff, and trying to be patient and THANKFUL). THANK YOU!

This is a good reminder for me as well. Something further we could meditate on is "why would God say this to us?" I have already started meditating on that (thanks to your reminder) and am being blessed by the answers that the Lord is helping me to realize!

Hehe...am working on a similar post. Love the way you think, girl! Such a good reminder! Love your printables...keep 'em coming!

That is so cool! November is probably my favorite month along with Thanksgiving. I love that Bible verse too. It's so important we praise God for the good and the bad.

Hope you have a great day!

How very true. I really need to get to know my bible better so I can easily turn to it for inspiration.

What a terrific post! Along with everyone else, I needed to read that. Thank you so much for your comment today on my blog today. I love my Pug & I love to know about other "Pug" bloggers. Einstein - great name - is a very handsome fellow! Nice to "meet" you!
Best,

It's a very short verse, but has such a huge meaning! We take so much for granted, and it's the little reminders like this that keep us thankful for what we do have! Thank you so much for sharing! :)
