Promise Me when this month is clear
you will not forget Me the rest of the year
Promise Me you’ll remember
all the ways of thankfulness I’ve taught you.
Promise Me you will continue
to find ways to be grateful each day
Promise Me, especially in the next few weeks,
you’ll seek My heart more than anything.
I know you’ll be tempted to focus
all your attention on gifts, decorations, and fuss
please, would you just come find your rest in Me alone.
When you begin to feel anxious and worried
promise Me you will stop and consider
all the things you gave thanks for through these moments
and once more you’ll find in Me your hearts fulfillment.

A heart at peace gives life to the body,
but envy rots the bones.
