Happy Thanksgiving! I know I’m a couple of days early, but I wanted to get the Thankful Thursdays Linkup running early because of the holiday.
It’s the season of thankfulness. Everywhere we turn we see the words thankful and grateful but sadly for many being thankful is not a part of their daily life. I want my family and others to hear and see me being thankful for the things in my life. One day, I want to be remembered as someone who was truly content and thankful for what I was given.
Thank you, Lord
We have so much in our lives that we can be thankful for if we sat down and wrote about each of them we could fill the pages of a book. While I could list out a ton of things I’m thankful for I won’t because I’ve shared over the past weeks many things I’m truly thankful for. I’ve even shared ways to help create a Thankful Spirit and how Thankfulness Leads to Contentment. A couple of things I have not mention that I am thankful for are my faithful readers. Those of you who allow me to enter your email boxes, thank you! If you visit the site here, thank you! To my faithful Thankful Thursdays Linkup participants, thank you! If it weren’t for you, I would not have met some of you through your blogs and received wonderful encouragement from your writings; I’ve even learned a thing or two and I thank you for that.
I love the song I Just Want to Thank You Lord. The lyrics hit just about everything we can be thankful for in our daily lives. These are my favorite words of the song:
For being a friend so dear, giving my sad heart cheer, For holding my hand when I could not stand, thank you, Lord. For giving your life for me, on a cross at Calvary, For taking my place, mercy, and grace, thank you, Lord
I’m so thankful for a Friend who is beside me every day. He gives the grace and mercy that I need on a daily basis, and I'm thankful for that.
