Chapter 8, Page 16, Book 12

Get down on your knees and thank God  you're still on your feet. 
Irish Proverb

THANKFUL Thursday!

I am still on my feet today!  What a blessing.  Every day is a gift and I am thankful for each one them.

I've had a few busy days this past week and they have been filled with lots of family times.  Living alone as I do, these times mean more to me than I can say.

There have been weeks on end when I'm here alone and I am thankful that I can do that.  Although I love the company, it means a lot that I can pretty much take care of myself and my home.  With the dear Lord's help, everyday is a good one.

Gratitude is our most direct line to God  and the angels. If we take the time, no matter how crazy and troubled we feel, we can find something to be thankful for. The more we seek gratitude, the more reason the angels will give us for gratitude and joy.

Today I pray for you
A heart free of sadness
A mind free of worries
A life full of gladness
a body free of illness
And a spirit full of God’s blessings.

Good Morning !

Have a great Thursday everyone!

Love these prayers! I can understand the gratitude for being able to be independent!


Love the angels. They watch over us in so many ways. Glad you have time with your family. I am alone quite a bit too. With my hubby working again. It gets lonely. But I'm grateful for the roof over my head and the food in my fridge. Take care.
