Take time to enjoy your health, and be thankful! Start a new tradition and go for a “thankfulness walk and talk” after your holiday meal. Remember that walking is a great way to reach your exercise goal. Many of us wonder what God’s will is for our lives. According to Scripture, God wants us to be thankful. As you walk, share with each other the things you are thankful for this year.
