COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS
Today is thankful Thursday and I am counting my blessings one by one...Thank you to Lynn at Spiritually Unequal Marriage for hosting this wonderful opportunity. Be sure and visit her and find the other grateful, happy hearts that have participated.
Psalm 3:8 Salvation belongs to the LORD. Your blessing is upon Your people.
It has always been very easy for me to name the many blessings in my life and today is no different...Right at the top of my list I thank God for the husband that He has blessed me with. I could never really tell you all the little things he does to make my life easier. From working hard to make the money he has to support our family through the years, to being there for me in every way both large and small. For the last several months my knees have made it difficult for me to get around and so he does all of the grocery shopping for us, making sure to hunt for whatever items I have come up with to try and make my diet more bearable, and has been known to stop on his way home after a LONG day if he thinks I might need something. He waits on me whenever he is around with never a complaint, and keeps my car gassed and washed. He listens with a sympathetic ear and an understanding heart. He is, in my opinion, all the Christian husband should be, serving and loving me with an unselfish and giving spirit.
I'm grateful that the hot summer days have cooled into the crisp cool days of Fall..
I'm grateful that my step dad has not even experienced a "sick" day since he was diagnosed with terminal cancer almost a full year ago...
I'm grateful that I live close enough to some of my grand kids to see them several times a week...and close enough to the others that I see them often...and for their sweet, loving little spirits and the unmeasurable joy they bring me...
I'm grateful that I have found a diet that works and that the Lord has given me the strength to lose 33 pounds so far..
I'm grateful that I have a close, wonderful relationship with all 4 of my grown children and that I enjoy talking to them frequently..and for my two wonderful daughter-in-laws who I couldn't imagine life without..
I'm grateful for the home I have lived in for almost 24 years and the memories we have made here..
I'm grateful that my daughter is coming to visit in two weeks..
I'm grateful that my mother is enjoying relatively good health and that we enjoy a close and loving relationship..
I'm grateful for my sisters and my friends who understand and know me, and are always there for me...
I'm grateful for everyone of the new blogging friends I have made and all the hours of enjoyment and support I have found with them..
And on a lighter note....I am thankful for the double chocolate cake that Jenny Craig makes that is so yummy and keeps my sweet tooth satisfied..
And first and foremost I am thankful for my Lord and Savior to whom I owe everything I have, and without whom I am really nothing at all...
Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,
Revelation 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: "Blessing and honor and glory and power to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!"
