Thank You For Reminders

As Thanksgiving comes to a close and we move on to Christmas;
I want to thank God for reminders.  The fact is that we all need reminders, from time to time, to help us stay focused.  Thanksgiving serves as a yearly reminder that we have much to be thankful for. It is incredibly easy to take many of the blessings of God for granted.  We forget to cultivate a thankful heart.  So at least during the Thanksgiving season, we are reminded to be thankful for what we enjoy.  I know a couple of friends that write down things they are thankful for each day.  Perhaps it's not a bad idea especially if it allows us to remember what God has done for us.  God wants us to remember his blessings.  So while we need to be thankful each day,  Thank you God that once a year we can devote a day to giving thanks for all the blessings you have lavished on us.
