Thankful Thursday


I love visiting Kathleen Marie's beautiful blog. Today she has invited us to link there and do a Thankful Thursday post.

These are the things that come to mind today:

1. I am thankful for family. For my husband who always puts me first, my parents who have given us such love and the example of a Godly life, and my children and grandchildren who bring so much joy.

2. I am thankful for the friends God has placed in my life. It is so good to be able to just be myself and know they love me - warts and all.

3. I am thankful for music. It enriches my life.

4. I am thankful for the beauty of creation. God is a master artist and His works are magnificent.

5. I am thankful for good books.

6. I am thankful for my home and the memories it holds.

7. I am thankful for a childhood that was happy and carefree. I realize more and more how very blessed I was to grow up in a home filled with love and warmth and Christian values. It is something I never take for granted.

8. I am thankful that the Lord is in even the small things. I believe He prompted me to begin writing a blog, and it has been so much more than I ever imagined. I thought I would do a bit of writing. I had no idea it would bring so much into my life.

9. I am thankful for God's faithful provision in our lives. We have everything we need - and so much more.

10. I am thankful for laughter. There was a time I thought joy was gone forever, but by God's grace laughter fills our home again.

11. I am so thankful that God chose me before the creation of the world. I can hardly take it in, but it is true. He chose each one of us to be His children. He has given us the promise of eternity with Him. He has lavished us with His unconditional love. He is our perfect Father.

12. I am thankful that nothing can come into my life that does not pass through the hands of my Father first. I am thankful I can trust Him.

Blessings,
Linda

P.S. I always worry when I link to things that I will somehow get it wrong and hurt someone's feelings. I believe the original link for this is at Sting My Heart . I'm sorry I got it mixed up. I am trying to get all this right :)

No worries about the linkage :) - I am just glad that you shared with us your thankful list...
You know, sometimes we take things around us for granted. I need to remind myself for all the blessings God keeps pouring out on my family and me. I am especially thankful for the family God has placed me in.

Thanks again for sharing your list.

Blessings on your evening and always...

BTW - you have a beautiful blog :)

I love your list. I am so thankful that we began this blogging journey and have made so many wonderful soul-mates. I loved writing when I was younger and am so grateful to have a reason to do it again.

There are numerous reasons I will not be out there on skis - too cold, too slippery, takes too much coordination, too high! I can hardly wait to spend two days alone in a nice cozy condo!

We have an emerita faculty member who was still skiing at 80+ She was unbelievable.

What a lovely list, Linda. So many things to be thankful for. I know you have a lot on your mind right now so I appreciate even more this wonderful list.

I love Kathleen's site, too. And don't worry about the link thing. It all works out and no one gets their feelings hurt. :-)

Thanks for the reminder to find things to be thankful for. It is such a perspective changer!

I loved reading your thankful list. I think I need to start a thankful journal because it really helps to find the blessings in the midst of trials or sickness. This is a great idea!

What a precious list. I was especially touched by what you said about your childhood. You have such a thankful heart, and it has blessed me today! I'm thankful for you!
