What about You?
I encourage you to take a few minutes and think back over the things you are grateful for in this past 2018 year. It will stir up new neuropathways in the brain to bring light and healing. Sometimes (the Bible tells us) being thankful is a sacrifice. Nevertheless, we are instructed to rejoice and be grateful.
