Excitement is already in the air this morning as I rise to greet the cloudy sky! It is THANKGSGIVING week and I am looking forward to the Autumn rain, the pumpkin smells, the family and friends and most of all, the pause to join my thanks to the Lord for the many blessings he has bestoed on his people with all those who love Him. I am so thankful for so much! Here's just a few...
My God! As many words I could print here...none would begin to express how I feel toward my Father in Heaven, His Son, my Savior and the Comforter, the Holy Spirit. I am blessed beyond comprehension to have a God that Loves me and is personally active in my life. I praise Him...for there is NOTHING but Him worthy of praise.
My Hubby! Ephesians 5:25 come to my mind when I think of my sweet Hubby. It says "Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her". I give thanks to the Lord for my husbands heart...for his willingness not to always get his way, for his gentleness when I need correcting and for his great Love for the Lord!
My Children! "Children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward." Psalm 127:3 I love the smiles & hugs I receive, the deep conversations we have, silly songs we sing, watching them in wonderment as they make up stories, build creations, talk about Creation, dance and drum. I am thankful for every moment I have with them...every memory I store in my heart...every snuggle I receive.
My Home. "As for me and My house, we will serve the Lord." Joshua 25:15 The plaque, that was bought on our honeymoon, lives on our doorpost. It is our hearts cry...to serve the One who gives us life...the One from who ALL blessing flow. I am thankful to share our home with the many people who come in and out our door.
Family & Friends. These two are together, because many of the people in my life fit into BOTH categories. I love the people God has place in our lives. People who love Him and are seeking Him. People we can pray with and play with...share our hearts with. "He who finds a friend, finds a treasure." Franco Nero, Cars 2 (HeeHee)
As Thanksgiving week marches on...Be intentional to relish the moments...and
Give Thanksgiving to the One from whom ALL blessings flow...Our God, Our Savior, Our Comforter!
Happy Thanksgiving week to you all!
