Dear Lord, I’m so grateful I’m still loved.
Junuary 3rd - thankful Sunday
Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom
It’s hard to believe but another week has come to an end and It’s Sunday my day to take time and reflect on what I’m thankful for this week. Most of all I’m thankful for my family and the ;love they share. Family love is always there no matter what happens. I call it unconditional love. We are loved because we are family.
Sadly we had a funeral to attend for DSiL’s mom, the first in our family to die from Covoid 19, and I hope it’s also the last. We see how deaths are increasing daily and how many are working in hospitals to help those affected by it. Thankfully the funeral was able to take place and promptly. Our funeral homes are not so overwhelmed, that they had to wait. Some are. Having the opportunity to say a final goodbye to a loved one is a blessed thing. There weren’t able to be there when she passed but they were able to celebrate their love in a funeral service. Although it’s not my favorite to place to be, it’s important to have this for closure.
My SIL’s family has become an extension of ours. We've done so much together over the years that we’ve come to know and love each other. Not every family member is born a member but becomes one when love is shared.
I’m thankful that no other members of the family have been infected. Right now we are all in good health and that is to be celebrated. The new year will bring many new beginnings for all of us, but one thing remains the same, we start and end with family.
I’m thankful that there is a light of this dark tunnel. The vaccine has been produced and slowly but surely we will get it. Preventen is so important. And if I can prevent infection from this virus, I will do it. So thankful for all the scientists that made this possible. We know the Great Physician certainly had to have had a hand in this. Our God overcomes the impossible. Nothing with Him is impossible.
Start each day with a positive thought and a grateful heart.
