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

I'm thankful that my daughter is an aunt (through marriage). Her new nephew was born on my late father-in-law's birthday! He would have gotten a kick out of that:-)

I'm thankful the way God watches over me and guides my path.

I'm thankful for the opportunity to deliver the message Sunday morning at a retirement community. I'll do part sermon/part story-telling as they really like the stories!

I'm thankful for my coworkers who are devoted to the families and children they serve.

I'm thankful for life in America! As I listened to a few minutes of a news show where two men debated about where to draw the line on "freedom of speech" it occurred to me that the very fact they had the freedom to discuss it at all was a blessing.

What are you thankful for today?

Share with others by stopping by Sonya's blog, Truth 4 The Journey and sign up with "Mr Linky." Blessings on your day today.
