13 Days of Being Thankful

Day 13:

Thank you for cruising these 13 days of being thankful with me. In hindsight, I wish I had started this on November 1st, but sometimes it takes a while for an idea to gel in my mind.

I am always thankful for:

  • my Savior and Lord Jesus Christ
  • my sweet hubby
  • my wonderful children (including my daughter-in-love)
  • my father and 4 sisters
  • my local “family” of close friends
  • long-distance friends, some of whom I have not yet met
  • my church family
  • my cozy home, warm in the winter and cool in the summer
  • plenty of food
  • enough clothes
  • a reliable vehicle
  • “thorns” to keep me grounded and closely relying on God
  • laughter to lighten up a rough day
  • overflowing joy in the midst of even the worst of trials
  • the supreme comfort in knowing that my God is always with me
  • that all-encompassing “peace of God, which transcends all understanding,” that “will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).

This list looks long but I’m sure there are many more things I could add. Sometimes I feel like my view of the outside world is about the size of a quarter because I’m housebound so much, but when I take the time to count my blessings, I am always overwhelmed with thankfulness and praise to my God for providing so abundantly.

Beloved, may we never forget to be thankful for the seemingly tiniest of blessings in our lives!
