Gratitude Challenge – November 7 – Thankful for Squashing Self-Pity

Here at Words of Encouragement… **NOVEMBER MEANS: GRATITUDE CHALLENGE!!**   I am thankful for the choice to squash self-pity, and then for God enabling us to rise above it. The overall atmosphere for the past couple of months heading into the election has been especially contentious and frustrating.
