Thankfulness

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:17-19

One of my mommies I have a few moms texted me this morning saying that this verse had been on her mind for a few days, and that she felt like she was supposed to share it with me. I have always loved this verse. After reading it a few times, I opened up my devotional to read it really quick before I needed to leave, and guess what verse was on it? I know that I needed to be reminded right now how wide, long, high, and deep that Christ love is for me.
As I begin to think about Thanksgiving coming up, I have felt less thankful and more depressed. Yet in the midst of some confusing feelings about this upcoming holiday, today my thankfulness overwhelms me that the love of God knows no boundaries. He loves me that much. He loves Mary Anna that much. I choose to be a little more thankful and a little a less depressed today. His love is that big.
