I'm joining Sonya at Truth 4 The Journey and a host of others again this week in sharing 5 things for which I am thankful today!

1) Our son is coming home from school! We've really missed having him here and it will be great to have him home for a couple of months while he waits for his new session to start. (Our dog will be especially excited to see him!)

2) The three little ones I care for are all healthy after a couple of rough weeks passing a virus back and forth to each other.

3) Monday is the official start of the last course I need to complete to receive my certificate in Advanced Congregational Leadership:-)

4) The sky - every morning and every evening has been so glorious to behold! One morning the moon hung there against a slate backdrop. I had to stop and just look at it for a few moments.

5) My Savior, Jesus Christ. He hears me when I call out to Him. He answers me in ways I never imagined He would.

What are you thankful for today? Join us!

Hi Mary! It's snowing today and temperatures in some places are below zero. I'm thankful for having a warm home, a loving family, my life, my health, my strength, my salvation and my blogger family that the Lord uses to uplift and encourage me sometimes even more than my "real" family.

Awesome list of things to be thankful for. I just participated in this for the first time this week. It was great to sit and think about the blessings that God has given.

God Bless,

This is a wonderful list Mary! I always love looking at the sky. It really does praise Him doesn't it? :)

I enjoyed your list as well. It sure does my heart good to take the time to be thankful. Sometimes our busyness takes the thankfulness right out of us.

Joyfully His,

I also love to see the sunset and sunrises! They point me to my creator every time.

Hi Mary,
I can totally relate to the SAD "thing". I am originally from sunny Florida, but I don't think one can appreciate the sunny part of Florida until you've lived up north (we're in northern Ky). I have noticed, however, this year has been full of many, many sunny, blue skies and beautiful sunsets and rises. What a blessing these beautiful skies have been to me...and many others.
