Thankful Thursday



 I need to do this...I need to do thankful thurday. I should have done thankful wed. because I was struggling to say thank you yesterday,... I was too frustrated...and angry. It took me all day...until 5 p.m. to finally let it go....and give it to God.. I couldn't handle 'the stuff.' Funny how I know that He can but I carried it anyways and let it drag me further and further down until......

Today I am totally thankful for:


1. His love in spite of my behaviour
2. His strength when I just can't hold it together anymore
3. His forgiveness when I blow it. 
4. His compassion when I'm hurting and in need of His gentle touch
5. His presence....for staying and loving me in spite of.....

That's what I'm always grateful about...that He always forgives us and truly understands when we do things that are not pleasing to Him. Take care sister. God bless.

AMEN....I pray today will be a better day for you. BTW: I read your entire book the first night...I need to reread it...I just couldn't put it down. What a story you have...of GODS redemption and love in and through your life!!! I pray GOD will spread your book through out the earth to help heal the lives of others.
Hugs, andrea

Oh yeah, often grumpy I do Gratitude list in the ve before I go to sleep. It means I will wake up more calm. You know I am Pagan, still I remember a letter from from GOD to you:
Dear Nikki, I can do without your help today. Love, GOD

Being thankful really is the secret to success! Everytime I'm feeling down, I think on things that are pure and lovely, and give thanks. It works like a charm every time!
