What I'm Thankful For...

Lord,
Recently You have been forcing me to look outside myself at my blessings.

I know that to some people this blog is silly and it may even look pointless. But, Father, I know you have blessed me with such amazing women who bless me with their time, their comments, and even gifts. I know the gifts are secondary, but are appreciated nonetheless. Lord, I know that this blog was put into my life for a reason; I know these gURLfriends are really true.

Thank you, so much for my family. I can't say that enough, even if I told You every second of each day. Big A is the most wonderful husband, and he follows you as closely as he can. I love that most about him. And Moose is a precious little guy. He loves me so much, so much that I don't deserve. He's amazingly smart (aren't all Your children?) and beautiful and just so sweet. I can't ask for a better son. Thank you so much for my entire family, those gone, those present, and those to come. Lord, You have blessed me with people who have made me who I am today.

Thank you for my friends. I ask that you bless each of them on this day of Thanksgiving. Those near and those far. Bless their days as they go about eating their fill and hopefully filling themselves with love and laughter as well as food.

Most of all, dear Abba, thank You for You and Your Son. Father, I would not be blessed the way I am without You. You guide my heart, my soul; You are my past, my future, and my eternity. I thank You for Christ, for His Sacrifice. For everything You are.

In Your Name,
Amen


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
