To whom am I thankful?

Not my lucky stars, because I don’t think stars are lucky to begin with.

My thanks goes to the one who made those beautiful stars.

What Christ gave me was the greatest gift ever.

I am so unworthy of this gift and His love, but I am so grateful for it. And it is to Him that all my gratitude goes.

I am thankful to him for all the things I have listed in the past month. He gave me friends, family, joy, sunshine and the ability and reason to be thankful. 

Because of Jesus, I CAN give thanks in everything.

 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalm 34:1

I hope you have enjoyed this month of blog posts.

I encourage you to try it yourself.

Everyday for the next month find something new to be thankful for. Being thankful is not just for one day in November.

Thanksgiving Day is just a day set aside to remind us.

 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28

 Vehicles.

Because of vehicles we can travel many miles in a very short time.

We can travel to see friends and family for

special  events and holidays.  

Many years ago it took weeks and months to go places we go in just days now.

So many people get in there cars without even a thought that they didn’t used to be.

So if you are traveling during these next few holidays,

take notice to how many times you get in a vehicle.  (Whether it takes you to the airport or to your destination.)

 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. Psalm 100:5

Happy Thanksgiving!

 

Day 24.

Today I am thankful for the chance to get together with family and friends .

Not everybody has family and friends to gather with today.

It does not matter how the meal turns out or if we forgot to make one of our traditional dishes, it is our attitude that matters.

Are we truly thankful?

I have heard it said that “A thankful heart can make any meal  a feast.” and it is so true.

Look around you today and count your blessings and it WILL surprise you what the Lord has done.

Happy Thanksgiving!

 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Ephesians 5:20

Teeth

We use our teeth to eat,

smile, frown and talk.

You can do all the above without them,

but it is much harder.

I am very thankful for teeth. 🙂

 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Psalm 100:3

Vacations

So after being grateful for work I am also grateful for vacations.

When I am working hard and I think of an upcoming vacation I almost get twice as much energy to get my work done and after a vacation (Even if it is a short one) I am ready to tackle work again.

And therefore I am also thankful for Sundays,

Sometimes when my week seems to be dragging on and by Saturday I want to quit work for good, just by taking my Sunday completely off then by Monday I am ready for another week of work.

I am very thankful for vacations how about you?

 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.  Genesis 2:2

Day 21

Work

I am thankful for work and the ability to work.
On days that I am tired of working I think of the people who are missing an arm or leg and still push on work anyway they can, then I realize that I have it easy, I have both my arms and legs and nothing to moan about.
It is an attitude that makes a person successful and content.

In the middle of a tiring project, if we take a moment to be grateful that we have a project, then we won’t mind it so much.

Give it a try.

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;  Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24
