Well - I am officially done with my #30daysofthanks. I will admit, it was harder to document thanksgiving praises with pictures...I am much better with words:) I also think people might have gotten sick of me. I know I was getting a little sick of being thankful - I know that sounds AWFUL:) I just got to the point where I wanted to read about something else - anything else - give me sin and suffering, just stop cramming thankfulness down my throat!! Every devotion I read was about thanks - but I know that God was teaching me an important lesson. I'm just human and have to complain about something, sometimes, right?????
It is easy to be thankful in private, but much harder in public - it makes you vulnerable. It makes you subject to judgment from others, and might even make you seem a bit pious. I hope I never came across that way, always humble. Because I do have a lot to be thankful for, but I also have a lot of wrinkles and scars too. I am the first to admit that I do not choose joy everyday like I want to, and I do not walk out my faith like I was created to.
