What are You Thankful For?

Well, it's that time of year again. Thanksgiving is just two days away, but all month long I've noticed people posting things that they are thankful for each day. It makes us stop and think. We often see terrible things on the news and it seems like there is little good left in the world. Is there anything left for which we can be thankful? Of course there is!

And so...

I am thankful for a loving and supportive family who has stayed by my side even when things have gotten rough.

I am thankful for the freedom to worship however I choose.

I am thankful that I don't have to worry about where my next meal is going to come from.

I am thankful that I have a job and a roof over my head.

I am thankful for the abilities with which I have been blessed.

I am thankful for the Terrible Times, for they taught me more than I ever learned in a classroom.

I am thankful for the opportunities that have enabled me to flourish.

I am thankful for the people who gave me those opportunities.

I am thankful for all who have helped me.

I am thankful for those who have brightened my day.

I am thankful for those who have come before me, forging a path that I can follow.

I am thankful for being alive.

I am thankful for being here.

I am thankful for burritos. (Couldn't forget those!)

I am thankful.

So now the question is, What are YOU thankful for?

  1. Thanks for sharing your Thanksgiving thoughts :) I echo many, if not all, of the items on your list. I'm ever in amazement that God drew me to Him through His Son. I don't know why, and I'm just in depthless, limitless gratitude.

    Also thankful for a loving, doting husband, as well as health, and an awesome church family (I just returned from a pump-you-up prayer meeting!). I could go on and on.

    This was read this morning, and so I'll share it here: “Sacrifice thank offerings to God,
    fulfill your vows to the Most High,
    and call on me in the day of trouble;
    I will deliver you, and you will honor
