Thankful Thursday
Rich Gifts Graphics & Blog Design

Sonya at Truth for the Journey started listing 5 things she is thankful for on Thursdays some time ago and invited others to join her. So, here goes:

1) I am thankful first and foremost for Jesus Christ and the sacrifice He made to afford me eternity in heaven.

2) I am thankful for God's grace - which He extends to me in abundance - because I need it abundantly:-)

3) I am ever thankful for my husband, whose faith and strength are an inspiration to me.

4) I am thankful for my children, and all that they have become and everything they are becoming.

5) I am thankful for the people God has placed in my path - as a human being, a Christian, a writer, a member of church family.

I could keep going, probably up to about #100 but I think I'll stop here and make this an every Thursday habit. It's a good exercise and a great way to stay focused on my blessings.

The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. [1 Timothy 1:14 NIV]
