Once a year we are reminded of all the things that we should be thankful for, the blessing that we have experienced and the gratefulness that we can acknowledge because of God’s goodness in our lives.
For some, it may be difficult if you are one of the many Americans who are faced with dealing with the impact of this recession. Perhaps you’re unemployed, or you are experiencing the backlash of the real estate crunch, or you are simply challenged to make ends meet. 
Regardless of what you may be experiencing, you could actually bring some joy back into your life if you took a moment to count your blessings, acknowledge what gifts and opportunities that have been presented to you and know that all things work out for good.
