I am going to take a look at my day with “thankful eyes” and try not to miss any of the blessings the Lord so graciously places in my life:
I am thankful for a sweet husband who has mastered the art of making the perfect cup of coffee (and that he gets up first in the morning to do it).
I am thankful for mercy that is new every morning. Before my feet hit the carpet I can be cleansed and filled and cover my loved ones with prayer.
I am thankful for a full refrigerator and pantry – for God’s faithful, abundant provision.
I am thankful for the welcoming hugs and smiles of the precious group of women with whom I share a love for the Lord and His word. It is a joy to study together.
I am thankful for our church and the warmth and fellowship we find there.
I am thankful for laughter.
I am thankful for this home and for the memories it holds.
I am thankful for my little granddaughter who sent me a letter with a picture and a Bible verse just for me.
I am thankful for the quiet moments.
I am thankful for the beauty that surrounds me.
I am thankful that even the “uneventful” days are filled with meaning and purpose because I am His child.
As always you will find more Thankful Thursday posts at Iris' wonderful blog.
