Oh yes, it is that day of the week already; do you make a point to give thanks continually or just when things turn out as you desire?
I am thankful for Lynn at Spiritually Unequal Marriage, who remind us to make this a habit in our lives.
Today I am thankful that nothing catches our Father unaware, nothing is out of His control.
I am thankful that He know my hearts desires, knows me better than anyone, He knows my fears and counts all my tears. I am thankful that He knows the weakness of my personality and the strength He has sown into me. He knows the promises I rely on and count as Truth. I am thankful that He knows that I trust Him and depend on Him when all else around me is spinning wildly.
I am grateful for the fact that He knows my laughter and joy and the things that bring me to this place. He knows all the days of my life and makes my path straight.
I am so thankful that He has blessed me so much, with salvation, with my beloved husband, my daughters and their families, my friends and of course getting to know all of you. For more thankful posts please visit Lynn @
Be blessed today and give thanks.


  1. What a precious Thank you list my friend.

    We truly DO have SO much to be thankful for.

    Thanks for blessing my heart today.

  2. Oh Noreen,

    I am thankful too for all of these things. I am so thankful for you and KNOW this, I am praying over you and your current place.

    Love you so much. Happy TT

  3. Oh Noreen ~ I love your thankful heart :) I am so thankful for all of these as well! God is soo good to us and Loves us so! What blessed lives we have!!

    Enjoy your day

  4. Great post, Noreen.
    Your previous post touched my heart. My son was also born 13 weeks early with pneumonia and suffered from a grade III brain hemorrhage after birth. (He's outside mowing the back yard right now, praise God!)
    Two years before that another son was stillborn at 24 weeks when I got an e-coli uterine infection. My heart goes out to the family who lost the baby. Those of us who belong to the Lord can find great comfort in knowing we will be with those little ones for all eternity.

  5. I love how you closed your post: "Be blessed today and give thanks." Okay, I will :)

  6. Noreen,

    I loved your post today and am so grateful that God is such a loving and forgiving God and realizes that while we are here on Earth, no matter how hard we try, we will never be perfect. Yet He loves us as though we are.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  7. This was so good to read this afternoon. I was just thinking about Paul and Silas, even though they were in prison, they remained thankful and praising the Lord. Sometimes in the darkest of times, it's so easy to focus on our circumstances, and forget to thank the Lord for His goodness to us. He is still able to do so much more than we can ever dream of! Thanks for reminding us to be thankful! (Thanks also for your special comment you left on my blog. Just wanted to let you know that meant a lot and I whispered a prayer for you today.) :o)

  8. Beautiful sharing dear one! You always bless my heart!!! I'm so thankful to GOD for EVERYTHING and that includes being thankful for you my friend.

    I'm praying for you and your family diligently. Love you!

  9. I am thankful for your post, Noreen. Beautiful.

  10. I think it's Awesome that the LORD knows us so personally...HE Speaks our individual language. What makes us laugh, cry, think...
    That's SO like HIM!
    Great post!
    Happy TT.

  11. This is a beautiful list of things that I too, can be thankful for.

  12. Wonderful blessings, Noreen...God is good!

  13. Enjoyed your post!!! Have a great weekend.
