Happy Thanksgiving to all of YOU!
This is my Thankful Thursday, and my Thanks to my God.
First and foremost I am THANKFUL that God EXISTS!!
With my heart filled with gratitude, I thank You, my God.
I am Thankful for all my Bloggy friends, I am so grateful for all that are in my life. The Blog friendships I have met, Lord the ones that share there journeys to you, and to me, I am Thankful for.
In sharing, I find that my happiness expanded and my sorrow lightened, for this blessing, I am truly grateful.
I rejoice God that Your Son, Jesus, has called each of us from the position of servants to the honor of being His friend. We know this is not a religion, that this is a relationship with you God. And that you Love us unconditionally.
I am thankful for each new challenge, because it will build my strength and character. I am thankful for all my mistakes, they teach me valuable lessons.
I am thankful when I get tired and weary, because it means he has made a difference in me. It's easy to be thankful for the good things. But I am more Thankful for my set backs because these just bring me closer to my Lord, I am most Thankful for.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive. Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they can become your blessings.
Count your blessings instead of your crosses; Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes; Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears; Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your health instead of your wealth; Count on God instead of yourself.
I would like to wish all of my Friends here a Blessed Thanksgiving!
Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:
Autumn leaves are falling,
Pretty colors everywhere.
Thanksgiving day is almost here,
Another day that we may share.
The things we take for granted
Are blessings from above.
The needs He has provided,
Were given to us in love.
Let's give thanks for what we have,
Bow our heads and together pray.
As we join our friends and family,
On this Thanksgiving Day.
I Love You All!
