Thankful Today

by | Jan 11, 2011 | God's blessings, thankfulness

This morning I am thankful for so many things. 

In the last couple of days, I have been made aware that a few of my dearest friends and acquaintances are going through some really tough times…times that their faith in the Lord will be the thing that they cling to, to get them through.  I’m recalling this morning some of those times in my life.  Those times were unbelievably painful and difficult, yet they were also times where I felt God’s compassion, love and presence so strong personally.

I am praying for these dear ones in my life this morning.  I am thankful I have a God and Saviour who listens to my not-so-eloquent prayers and answers them in His timing.

I am thankful for a beautiful snowy morning. 

I’m thankful for a two-hour school delay, and that I didn’t have to rush out the door this morning (even though we were backing out of the driveway at 6am when we found out about the delay.  I’ve had a date with my coffee ever since.)

I’m thankful I have two precious children.  What a privilege God has given me to raise them in His ways.  What a gift and blessing both Ali and Zach are to me.

I’m thankful I have a husband who loves me, even when I’m unlovable and don’t deserve his love.  He made me feel so important and special last night with some of the little things he did and said.  I don’t know what I would do without his constant and never-ending love.

I’m thankful that I get to help others today.  I get to love on those some would consider the least, the last and the lost.  There’s no greater honor for me today…God has entrused me to do this kind of service for Him.  I’m awed and honored.

And I’m thankful I get to return home later today to our home, and even though it’s nothing fancy, it’s filled with God’s peace, love and joy.  We’ll get to have dinner as a family, and spend priceless time together tonight. 

I am very thankful today.  Thank you, Lord for your continued blessings in my life!
