Thankful Thursday

I have had an idea that's been rolling around my brain for a couple of weeks and I decided that today I will put it into action. I need to be more aware of the blessings in my life and the good things that God gives me. I want to regularly remember them, so I decided to make Thankful Thursday. Every Thursday, I will write a blog post about things that I am thankful for. There may be repeats each week, but I will try to be more aware of things during the week that are something I am thankful for. If you want to join me in this endeavor, let me know, and I can create links to those who make Thankful Thursday posts. If nobody else joins me, that's ok too, I'm doing it for my own spiritual health.

So, today, some things I am thankful for:
  • having a job where people want to work together as a team and where I feel like a contributing member
  • my wonderful husband who helps wash dishes and is just sweet in general
  • being part of a home group that cares for and challenges each other
  • having enough money to order pizza once in awhile
  • being able to have a creative outlet in quilting
  • having enough money and time to be able to share both with others
  • my family - we all get along most of the time and can talk and do fun activities together
  • my friends - you are all unique and bring something special into my life
  • that God loves me and wants to have a relationship with me - really, everything else is just icing on the cake!
Thank you Lord for all the good things you have blessed me with. Apart from you, I have no good thing. My heart is glad and my tongue rejoices. (Psalm 16)

I hope you can think of lots of things to be thankful for today too!

Its so healthy to remind yourself of all the blessings in your life - how can you be envious of others when you are concentrating on all the riches of your own life?

Thanks for sharing. I am thankful to have you for my sister.

Love you!

Blogger "Jumping Tandem" has a pile of stones for each thing she is thankful for, and it is fun to see the pile grow and when she looks out her kitchen window, it serves as a useful reminder. Being glad and giving thanks is so important. Thank-you!
