Chapter 11, Page 17, Book 12

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say thank you

 William A. Ward

# 17 of 30 things I'm thankful for in November


 I try live in the moment and enjoy the gift that is today by doing my best. Thankfully, God has been so gracious to sprinkle my days with some sweet blessings

In hoping to be happy about something in the future, instead of being happy right now, we are missing out. We often want more time, more money for that new purchase, a better job, better health. 

There will never be another like it, so make today count!

No matter what looms ahead, if you can eat today, enjoy the sunlight today, mix good cheer with friends today, then enjoy it and bless God for it. Do not look back on happiness or dream of it in the future. You are only sure of today; do not let yourself be cheated of it.
 Henry Ward Beecher

In a chaotic world, time is precious. Enjoy what you do have because it flies by far too quickly.
Every day of our years should be a thanksgiving day.

Sweet Blessings to each of you today!
