I am going to try to thank the Lord for as many things as I possibly can think of leading up to Thanksgiving this coming week.
I am overwhelmed at His blessings this year.
I am thankful for my husband of 32 years, more than I can EVER say.
I am thankful for kids that love family and their Lord.I am thankful for my parents and siblings.
I am thankful for amazing friends that would drop everything to help me if I asked.
I am thankful for unselfish fellow staff members that share a common vision.
I am thankful for our congregation that could choose to be anywhere in the world but chose to come to church to worship!
This is not to say that there have not been great trials and problems this year, but, if we can look beyond our circumstance to see God's sovereign will - even in trials we can be thankful.
(Ok, so sometimes I'm ticked for a while when disappointment comes.)
But, when I get over myself... that makes me thankful for forgiveness! ha ha
What are you thankful for? Please share!
