Today is Thanksgiving and I have a lot to be thankful for.  Bishop Vashti McKenzie has inspired a “Gratitude Marathon” this week and as you post things on FB and Twitter that you are thankful for the hash tag is “#Thanksliving”.  That’s right…Thanksliving, not Thanksgiving.  Are you living a life of Thanks?  Does how you behave and respond on day to day basis exhibit Thanksliving.  I am thankful for health and strength; the activity of my limbs…especially my fingers as I type these words #thanksliving.  I am thankful for family.  Although they are far away, I thankful for technology and being able to communicate with them even though I cannot be with them #thanksliving.  I am thankful for God’s grace and His tender mercies which are new every morning…great is thy faithfulness!!! #thanksliving.  I pray you have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving on today and that you remember to live a life of thanks #thanksliving.

About DestaIsJoy

Desta is an African Amharic name meaning "joy". My spiritual father and former pastor has twin daughters and one's middle name is Desta. I latched on to that name once I knew the meaning and use it in one of my e-mail addresses and for my website: where I promote my book and other writings. The joy of the Lord is my strength and for that I am truly grateful. For every mountain he has brought me over, for every trial he has seen me through and for every blessing, for this I give God praise!!!
