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!

About Anna Popescu

I live in northern Arizona with my husband, Rick. I am blessed to say that Rick and I are at the bottom corners of a triangle where Jesus sits at the top corner. My children, Kathy & Alan, live in the Phoenix area and make this mom's heart thankful they have grown to be such wonderful and caring adults. Alan married in 2010, so I am also blessed with Denise as a special daughter-in-love. The Lord took my Mom home in 2007, and I miss her. My Dad and two sisters live in Florida while my two other sisters live in the Northeast. God has also blessed me and Rick with a local family of very close-knit friends. I love to write when I am able, but on the days when I am struggling with health issues and can't manage much of anything, I can at least crochet. These days I mainly crochet lapghans of various colors and sizes for area rehab centers and nursing homes.

  1. I’ll say ‘amen’ to your list, which I know in your case, as in mine and all blood-bought, adopted children of the living God, is actually an endless list. I think it would be impossible to list all of God’s blessings, because they keep on coming and coming from a bottomless heart and a never-ending abundance of supply.

    What an amazing God!
