What About The World Around Us, Do We See?

Have you ever thought that it’s a good idea to thank God every day for something?  Have you ever known you should and that lots of things to thank God for. But you don’t want to just say same things over and over: “I thank You for food I eat, I thank You for my life,” etc. (though sometimes, it’s hard to thank Him for my life, to be honest).  Those are all good things, but at least for me, they can start to feel tired. There’s got to be something more creative, different to thank God for.

Well, here’s an idea for finding things easily to thank God for.  It was something I read in a devotion one time.  Writer said that when she was in a funk, she looked at all things around her and thanked God for those things.  So let’s try it.
