Dear Lord, don’t let us miss You this Christmas season. Help us to simplify our activities and traditions so we can focus our celebration on Your birth. Thank You for being the Prince of Peace, and I ask You for that supernatural peace to reign in our hearts. Thank You for the simple but life changing message of Your love for us.
It is so important to have a sense of gratitude for the little things that make each day special. They are different for each one of us and that is why it is good to say thanks for them. We tend to do it far less than we think. Stop at some point today and think of all the blessings you have been given. Recognize how much beauty there is around you and in you
On this Thankful Thursday I am thankful as always for my family, my home, my health, and food on the table. Really more food than I should be eating, but it's winter time and I need comfort food.
I'm thankful for the blessing of having my youngest grand child to care for every other week. His smiles and coo's are heaven sent for sure.
I'm thankful that the last winter storm we had wasn't as bad as it could have been and that my furnace is keeping this old house warm. Everyone in my family managed to survive it without any mishaps and that is a blessing when the roads get snow covered and icy.
I'm thankful that my shopping and Christmas craft work is done and everything is now just waiting to be wrapped.
For these and all my many blessings I am truly thankful
I hope your Thursday is one that you can find something to be thankful for too.
