Thankful Thursday – October 2

“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
I Thessalonians 5:16-18

Here is my thankful list for this week –

1. I am thankful for the opportunity we have in our country to vote and have a voice in our government. May it never be taken for granted.

2. I am thankful for bright sunshiney days with blue skies and cooler temperatures.

3. I am thankful for all of the birds that live in my yard and their visits to my feeders each day.

4. I am thankful for my big brother who celebrated his birthday yesterday – for his kind and loving heart, his love for family, his genuineness and his fun and amiable personality.

5. I am thankful that Laura was able to fulfill a life-long dream of volunteering at an animal shelter yesterday – she and Jeff will be volunteering together once or twice a month, and their job will be to play with the animals and walk the dogs – she will be in heaven!

6. I am thankful for the movie “Fireproof”, it’s message, and the beauty of seeing Scripture up on the theater screen that so much of the time is showing negative images.

7. I am thankful that no matter what happens in this world, God is in control, and His will and His plan will be accomplished in His time.

8. I am thankful for pleasant afternoons on the front porch.

9. I am thankful for the apple dishes of all kinds that we’ve been enjoying all week – for the blessing of the harvest and the joy of the Lord’s provision for us.

10. I am thankful for my family that God has given me to love and care for.
