Grace before

I‘m at (in)courage today, reflecting on our upcoming holiday where we say thanks—and how it’s best if we say thanks all the time, as we wash dishes, fold clothes, reply to emails, and run errands. From the post:

“And I admit that when I’m reading evening devotions with my daughter just before I kiss her goodnight, my eyes fade and my mind checks out a bit. It’s not that I don’t want her to imbibe all these good words into her heart—it’s that I’m about to pass out, I’m so tired from the day’s work.

It’s times like these that I remember the necessity of thanking God as we work. Yes, we should be still and commune with God. But there are seasons in life—such as parenting little ones—that make it challenging to grab more than a few minutes of stillness before God.”

Read the rest and share the practical ways you say thanks here.
