The Thanksgiving List

“Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salavation. Selah.” ~Psalm 68:19

I read this verse in my devotions this morning, and my heart said a hearty AMEN! There are other things I could have written about this week, but I would be remiss if I did not stop and take time to list (because there is so much) what I am thankful for.

I am thankful for:

  • A loving, Heavenly Father who never gives up on me though I fail daily.
  • A husband who loves and serves God, provides for our family and is patient with me.
  • Daughters who are not only beautiful and intelligent, but healthy and happy, growing in the knowledge of God.
  • Parents who were brave enough to leave an empty lifestyle to live a full life in Christ.
  • In-Laws who are great examples for, well, anybody!
  • Godly grandparents who God has kept on this earth to influence my children.
  • Technology to keep in touch with loved ones.
  • Doctors who are able to use ultrasound to see our new daughter due this spring.
  • A Pastor who preaches the Word of God without shame or watering it down.
  • A church family that really is like a family.
  • A warm place to live. (And a cool place too!)
  • God’s provision through lean times and bountiful times. (Yes, I have seen both this year.)
  • The Word of God to show me what I need to change, encourage me in discouragement, and empower me by the Spirit of God.
  • A sister who truly is my best friend.
  • A brother who is helpful.
  • The ability to take vacations! 🙂

So… what are you thankful for? Feel free to share your list in the comments.
