.. because I think it is important to say thank you to God, not just run down our laundry list of needs and want.. all the while whining about what we don't have.. which is an easy habit that I am guilty of getting into. Sometimes it is easier to be focused on what we DON'T have then on what we do.
I am blessed with many things to be thankful for; family, friends, friends that are like family, a roof over my head, and a church family that I absolutely love... just to name a few in no particular order. But most of all I am thankful for the grace and mercy of God in my life and for His never ending patience, love, and faithfulness that He shows me on a daily basis.
So tomorrow when we wake up to this...
"Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever." Psalm 118:29
Have a blessedly thankful day,
