Thankful ~ Day 4

I'm thankful for my church!!  I'm thankful for the way God has used it to stretch, grow, strengthen, and deepen my relationship with Him.  I'm thankful that the pastors unashamedly speak the truth.  I treasure what I've learned within those walls, and the way it's changed my life outside of those walls.

Thankful ~ Day 3

Today I'm cleaning house, and I'm thankful I have a house to clean!  Years ago, after the divorce, I was so uncertain about my financial future.  There didn't seem to be any way I could stay here alone.  In fact, on paper it didn't work.  But, God has provided for me in ways I never would have imagined.  Nine years later, my house payment is a third less!!  I can live here cheaper than I can live in an apartment.  That's only by God's grace!  There's not a day I come home and don't thank God for the gift of my home.  I'm so thankful that I can live here happily, with no painful memories of the past.  Finally, I'm thankful for the extra bedrooms that I pray over and believe will one day be filled with children.

Thankful ~ Day 2

I'm thankful for my job!  After 12 years, I'm still passionate about what I do.  It still fulfills me.  I'm thankful for the lessons I've learned while being a teacher.  I'm thankful for the opportunities I have to share God's love with my students.

Thankful ~ Day 1

I'm so incredibly thankful for my Savior, Jesus Christ!  Sinful and undeserving, He loved me enough to take my place on the cross.  His love, grace, mercy, forgiveness, and goodness know no bounds.  I cannot imagine my life without Him!!  Everything good thing I have comes from Him!!
