Here we are again celebrating reasons and blessings in our lives, cultivating an attitude of gratitude and thankfulness. In my life, focusing on my many blessings helps me have such a better attitude.
Today I am so thankful for the love of God, His Son and His Spirit that loves unconditionally. I am thankful that I know Him personally and that we have the freedom here in the U.S. to worship without fear of persecution. I am thankful that we have been in our home now a week and despite some disorganized areas it is now feeling like our own nest. I am thankful for my beloved hubby who worked days upon days to get it ready for us. What a man I'm married to, such an incredible blessing to me. I am so appreciative of my two daughters, their hubbies and each sweet grandchild. I am thankful for being able to get out and walk again almost every morning; exercise feels so good. I am thankful for the sister in Christ, who happens to be one of my closet friends here, who met me to walk and pray yesterday and who I got to spend the morning with. She is like a breath of fresh air to my spirit. I am so grateful and thankful that our youngest daughter got an appt. for our little Peanut with the holistic doctor in the neighboring town. I am thankful that he has been trained as a traditional doctor but called into more natural healing. I am trusting and thanking the Lord that there has to be some natural cures out there for a two year old with severe GERD. I am so grateful for my brother and sil for their constant support and encouragement to our entire family. I am thankful for sweet blogging friends who are faithful prayer partners; especially Carol and her encouragement and Quilts for the North, Becky who is such a ray of sunshine, Debbie in Arizona, Lisa Shaw, my prayer pals from Spiritually Unequal Marriages, Nellie, Sue, Marlene, Pam and so many others. I am thankful for another beautiful day in which to live and worship my King. I am thankful that the Lord has assigned me my portion and my cup and made my lot secure.
Blessings to you this day, may your life overflow with love. Noreen
