Be thankful in every season.

by joy soaked words

You probably just read those words, looked outside and thought to yourself “come on Nat, it is snowing in the middle of April, I am not very thankful right now.” I am not talking about that kind of season, but I mean I am kind of thankful because we might get a snow day. (I have a test tomorrow) I am instead talking seasons of life that you go through. I wrote a blog post a little while ago about the season of waiting I am in, but this is kind of an expansion on that blog post. Today, the ladies choir at W-O sang at a church in New Hamburg. The pastor stood up and one of the first things he said was “This is a day the Lord has made, let us rejoice in it.” I was thinking about as I was 4wheeling with my brother in this mini snowstorm. Every single day, no matter what is going on in your life, God has planned out the very last detail. Every season, he is still there. We all get stuck in these ruts and it feels like nothing is going right, but we still need to be thankful. Because the creator of the universe, made that day. I probably sound like a broken record to you right now about being thankful. But I know, going through my day at school and work, I meet people who like to complain, and I meet people who are thankful for everything. Even the little things. I have customers who get so excited that we have one last monster cookie that they have been craving all day. Where I am going with this, is we all go through seasons. Bad and good. No matter what, we need to be thankful, even if it sucks and you just want to cry and eat your weight in chocolate. I do not blame you, I’ve been there. I met up with a friend who I have not seen in a very long time due to her moving away. When she moved, I didn’t understand. I was hurting. I missed her. But I am thankful for the time that I did get to spend with her, and now the random dinner dates that we have now. I hope this blog post has been an encouragement to whatever season you are going through right now.

Nat.
