What I’m Thankful For

download (1)

I have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving and, if you will be so kind, I would like to mention what I am thankful for. God has blessed our family this year, even during the darkest of days and it is fitting this Thanksgiving week to praise Him for His goodness and mercy.

First thing that I am thankful for is the Lord. He is what holds my life together and I would be nothing without Him. He has been with me through the toughest times this year and the best times. He has always provided for my physical needs and my spiritual needs. I am thankful for His love!

Second, I am thankful for my husband. He works hard at his job and provides for his family. He has helped out around the house when I was too sick to get out of bed. He has taught me so much about myself and more importantly I have learned so much about God through him. He loves the Lord and you can tell. He also loves people and he shows this by always being available to help out when people need help and he is the kindest guy you could ever meet! Love you hon!

Third, our furry cat Tiggy. Yes, she leaves little cat hairs all over the house, but she completes our family. She is always ready to cuddle, loves to play, and makes me laugh when she plays in the tub. She is a sweet natured and loving kitty and we are pleased to be her people.

Fourth, our little baby Katie. Though not yet born, we look forward to being her parents. God has blessed us with a little baby girl. We are thankful for the opportunity to try our hand at parenting! We know she will be a blessing to our family.

Fifth, our great big family! I am thankful for my parents who love me continually, for my siblings who are just plain awesome. For my adopted family in Topeka who decided it would be awesome to adopt me as an unofficial daughter. For my in-laws, but I don’t like to call them that, my mother-in-law is my mother and my father-in-law is my father, not to mention my sister-in-law is my sister. They have welcomed me into their amazing family.  God has blessed me with a large God fearing and loving family.

Sixth, for all the friends that God has blessed me with. For my best friend whom I’ve known since the early days of college. For my dear friend in Lamar, she is such a hardworking and has helped my family out so many times. For my amazing Ladies Bible Study group they have welcomed me with open arms. Also, for aunts and uncles who are just very loving.

Seventh, this one is a bit hard to talk about, but I am grateful for the time that I could spend with my aunt and cousins who passed away this year. I am so thankful I was able to spend time with them before I moved to Washington. All three of them loved the Lord and are with our Lord now.

Eighth, I am grateful to all my readers who support my blog. I am thankful for the opportunity to have a blog and the joy I have when I write.

Last, but not least, I am thankful that the Lord has forgiven my sins and I am a part of His family! I would be nowhere without Him!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
