As the holiday season rapidly approaches, it can be easy to fall into the trap of overwhelm. After all, we all want to find the perfect gift for everyone on our list, and with only a few weeks to do ALL the holiday things, we can lose sight of what’s actually important this time of year.
One viral video that puts it all into perspective is making the rounds again, and we couldn’t help but spread the holiday cheer.
Four years ago, Forest Hill Church in Charlotte, North Carolina produced a video perfectly reminding us to be thankful for both the big and the little things in life. Since first sharing it on Facebook, the video has racked up more than 14 million views! It doesn’t take but a few minutes to see why:
So often we find ourselves so trapped in the mundane tasks of everyday life, that we forget to look around and be thankful for all of the details that make life beautiful.
As we go through the motions of a busy and overwhelming holiday season, this video serves as a reminder to hit pause. Let’s reflect on all of the things we’re grateful for, and may we never lose sight of the gifts that God gives us every single day.
Share Forest Hill’s video with your family today, and let us know all of the things you’re thankful for this Holiday season!
