Thank you God for all the blessings and abundance in my life!
Gratitude is something of which none of us can give too much. For on the smiles, the thanks we give, our little gestures of appreciation, our neighbors build their philosophy of life.
A. J. Cronin
Gratitude is a powerful saving principle, with amazing personal results when practiced.
This week my thankful list is topped by the fact that grandchild #17 is on the way!
DD and her hubby of almost 14 years are going to be parents for the first time. This is an answered prayer. We just never know about God's timing. This babe is the outcome of years and years of waiting and praying.
A blessing like this makes me realize more and more that the dear Lord does watch over us and protects us and loves us through all the ups and downs of life and reminds us of what is important in this life He has given us.
Life is just so amazing. Miracles happen every day. Never give up because you just don't know what surprises might just be in store for you tomorrow.
When I think about all that is in my life, how can I help but be thankful.
It isn't what you have in your pocket that makes you thankful, but what you have in your heart.
DD and her hubby are just over the top with this good news. I've never seen anyone happier than the two of them except for perhaps myself. I am so happy for my daughter as I know how strongly she has wanted a child of her own. Our children do make us very thankful. Her due date is the later part of May 2012.
Gracious Lord, May our family grow through the years, and through Your kindness, may we be a blessing to all who know us. May the words of our mouths and the desires of our hearts please You, our Strength and our Deliverer.
Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from Him.
I hope your Thursday is one you can be very THANKFUL for too.
