We are each designed for a unique and divine purpose. Live yours!

To sign up for Thankful Thursday, stop by Truth4TheJourney, where Sonya is hosting this meme. It's a wonderful way to focus on blessings and express gratitude to the God who is the source of all good things in our lives.

1)Today I am thankful for the Love Dare. A group of about 40 women at Christian Women Take Root are reading this book (that was featured in the movie Fireproof). I was a bit resentful at first, but I have already noticed even small changes in my attitude and behavior, yield results in my husband's.

2)I am thankful for my job. In a time when so many are struggling to find work or are at risk of losing their jobs, I'm grateful to have found work that is meaningful to me.

3)I am thankful for the ways God is growing my ministry and using me to minister to His world.

4)I am thankful for the truly good friends in my life. It may be cliche to say friendship is a gift, but it's one that is very true.

5)I am thankful for my Christian writer's group. The directors and members continue to be a source of encouragement, advice and support.

What are you thankful for today?

Great list, Mary! I think the Love Dare is excellent. I'm glad to hear that it's "working." Of course the best part about it is that it pleases our Savior. Right? Hope you're enjoying your weekend.
