I am thankful for many wonderful blessings today:

I am thankful for my salvation through Christ Jesus;

I am thankful for my husband who has loved me for more than 39 years;

I am thankful for my children who show me love daily;

I am thankful for my very busy grandchildren whose smiles bless me;

I am thankful for friends who look beyond my faults and see my needs;

I am thankful for the ability to see, hear, touch, smell, think, and feel;

I am thankful for the home we have which provides warmth and comfort;

I am thankful for food on our table and clothes on our backs;

I am thankful for the ability to smile and to shed tears;

I am thankful that my mother is still living at the age of 84;

I am thankful for my brothers and sisters–all 7 still alive;

I am thankful for the air I breathe;

I am thankful for birds that light on my deck–cardinals and bluejays;

I am thankful for the trials that come to push me into my Father’s arms;

I am thankful for times of frustration–a ministry unto itself;

I am thankful for the losses I’ve experienced in life–

Without them I would not know the fulness of joy!

I am thankful for sleepless nights which cause me to meditate on

God’s Word and stand on His promises;

I am thankful for purpose which lives inside me;

I am reminded that that’s the reason I’m still here;

I am thankful for the ability to give a kind word to someone in need;

I am thankful for each season of my life;

God has designed them to fulfill His purpose in me!

I have so many things to be thankful for!

Sometimes I need to write them down;

This is one of those day!  And for even this day, I am grateful!
