Thankful Thursday

It's really good to focus on what I'm thankful for beccause things happen that make me want to crawl under the blankets and stay there. Thank-you so much Sonya for doing this T.T. every thursday. It helps to pull me out of myself and to remember all the wonderful things God has given me. If anyone wants to participate click on the picture or go to http://truth4thejourney.blogspot.com/


Five things I'm really thankful for today:
1 - the inner stength God has built into me - a strength that never seems to give up fighting to try to live my best life for His glory
2 - His gentle touch on my life that always tells me I am loved no matter what....He puts no conditions on me....accepts me totally for who I am and what I bring to Him. He knows the intentions of my heart and never judges me.
3 - eyes to see the beauty of His creation - the colors of the fall leaves, the awesomeness of the beauty of nature - the faces of people -
4 - the people who believe in me - who want me to succeed - who understand my shortcomings but cheer me on anyways - people who stay - who show their love and make me feel secure.
5 - the ability to talk with God - to commune with Him - to feel His touch - to hear His whisper - to know I am never alone anymore.

I loved your list. The other night I saw the most amazing sunset. The sky was a color that I have never seen before. Right in the middle of the high clouds was one long whispy cloud that resembled a hand reaching down to earth. I stared at it in awe and said aloud: "Thank you God. I needed that"
