Thankful Thursday - 09/17/09

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

It's Thankful Thursday! This is absolutely my favorite time each week. I pause to thank God for His blessings. They can be serious or silly, big or small, because God honors them all.


I'm thankful for:


The roof up above me;
A good place to sleep;
Food on my table
and shoes on my feet.


You gave me Your love Lord, and a fine family.


Thank you Lord for Your blessings on me.


What are you thankful for today, This Day? Please comment here and join in at Sonya's Truth 4 the Journey to link up with your own list of five.


Peace and Joy,
Susan

James 3:13 (NIV) Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.

Like the way you did your list! Short, sweet and truthful. So many times, I take those things for granted. Thanks for the encouragement!

Susan,
If I may be so bold. Don't forget to thank him for the feet you put shoes on. And for every breath you take.
Be blessed, and be a blessing to others.
