  1. Abbey, I love this! Sometimes I think in my present, non-thinking self I can start to think that thankfulness or joy or whatever it may be isn’t important and doesn’t change things. And THEN I find verses like this that remind me how much life the Bible speaks over these things and how important they truly are to the DNA of life. Thank you for this sweet reminder! I hope you are you family have an amazing Thanksgiving!
