Thankful Thursday

“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
I Thessalonians 5:16-18

If you read my last post, you learned of my recent struggle with contentment.  One of the ways to keep Joy in my heart is to remember all I am blessed with.  It is so easy to look at the problems in my life and forget the blessings.  I started Thankful Thursday in my last blog as a way to remind my self of those blessings.  So here is a list of things I am thankful for this week (in no specific order).....

**the changing of the seasons.  I love fall...the changing colors...the cool, crisp air....raking leaves....the  anticipation of winter....

**the gifts and talents my children posess

**a comfy quilt on those cool fall nights

**my husbands job--especially in this economy

**Godly mentors and leaders in our lives

**my home!! (read my last post!)


**quiet evenings with my husband and children--no running to volleyball, youth group, etc

**that the Lord has been good to me, even when (especially when) I don't deserve His goodness!

Take some time today to remember the special blessings you have in your life, and remember to Thank God for them!  For more thankful thoughts, please visit Iris at Grace Alone.

Have a Blessed Day!
