Give Thanks Party...

The things I am thankful for...


GOD'S GRACE AND LOVE
for I sin and fall short daily and He forgives me
that He is not finished with me yet
that He is still molding and shaping me into a better person
and that He gave His Son so I could have eternal life with Them

EVERY SINGLE PERSON HE HAS PUT IN MY LIFE
those who were in my life before...
the ones here now...
and the ones who will be...

EVERYTHING I HAVE
shelter, food and clothing
each step that I can still take
every breath that I am allowed to have
critters
the things in life that make it cozy and comfy
and that we have what we need when we need it every single time

EVERYTHING I DON'T HAVE
the trials that He has not asked me to bear
suffering
war, famine, hunger

ANSWERED PRAYERS
every prayer that God has ever answered for me or those I have prayed for

UNANSWERED PRAYERS
for each and every prayer that I have made that He knew better than to give

CHOCOLATE
it makes me smile

 
join the party

Thank you for the nice comments on my post.
My grandson Bane is 50% deaf in both ears, but he gets along pretty well. He had to have his hearing aids in school colors.
I lived in Ohio for a few years when I was a little girl, then moved to Indiana when I was in second grade, lived in North West In. till 1987 then moved to the south, I love it here.What part of Ill. do you live in ?
