Thankful Thursday

There is a song that is floating through my brain right now...

How can I say thanks
for the things You have done for me?
Things so undeserved,
yet You gave to prove Your love for me;
the voices of a million angels
could not express my gratitude.
All that I am and ever hope to be,
I owe it all to Thee.

To God be the glory,
to God be the glory,
to God be the glory
for the things He has done.

With His blood He has saved me,
with His power He has raised me;
to God be the glory
for the things He has done.

Just let me live my life,
let it pleasing, Lord to Thee,
and if I gain any praise,
let it go to Calvary.

Today I am so very thankful that the Lord saved me and has raised me. Words can not even begin to express the gratitude I have for what He did at Calvary.
I am thankful for spring like weather and a chance to get outside and exercise, whether it is on a trampoline with two granddaughters or walking with dear hubby and our dogs in our neighborhood. I am thankful that I have eyes that behold the beauty of this area and of our world. I am thankful for health and all that He has given me. I am thankful for the ability to sew and write simple ramblings from a nana's heart. I am thankful that this weekend hubby and I get to go up to the mountains with our youngest and her family.
It is with deep gratitude to you, my bloggy friends, for the friendships you have given me and for the joy in getting to know you.

Be blessed this day.
